"The biggest challenge for our industry is that such a large education gap persists. We compiled this report to provide a comprehensive resource for learning about digital securities and highlight the companies that are moving the industry forward," said Andre Serrano, Co-Founder of NovaBlock Capital.

"A surprisingly small portion of securities, assets and financial products in general are truly digital and accessible today," added Alon Goren, Co-Founder of Ownera and Security Token Summit. "We believe that this new digital era that we live in has paved the way for digital asset ownership, particularly in the form of smart securities, and that this movement will dramatically change the way that the global financial system transacts."

Smart Securities (AKA "Security Tokens") utilize blockchain technology to expand investor base and reduce frictions to trade, while automating compliance procedures, such as investor eligibility, disclosures and communications, cap table management, and enforcement of investor rights. Smart Securities also enable fractionalized ownership of real assets, instant settlement, 24/7 global markets, increased liquidity, and reduction in ongoing compliance and issuance costs. This model can be applied to any asset class, including private placements, real estate, debt, equities, private equity fund shares, and precious metals.

"Smart Securities are the next evolution of capital markets and capital formation. This phenomenon will affect retail and institutional investors, enabling the creation of new modes of ownership and eliminating the barriers to participation amongst a global investor base," said Leeor Shimron, CEO of NovaBlock Capital. "No asset class is immune, and this technology will force the largest of financial institutions to pay attention to the promises of blockchain. Trillions of dollars of wealth creation are at stake as digital assets gain the monetary premia currently enjoyed by US equities, real estate, and other traditional assets."
