MANAMA, Bahrain, June 26, 2024 – Investcorp, a leading global asset manager, has unveiled a strategic partnership with Securitize, an innovative firm specializing in asset tokenization. The collaboration, announced Wednesday, aims to launch a tokenized fund that will grant qualified investors exposure to Investcorp Strategic Capital Group’s (ISCG) general partner staking strategy.


A New Era in Private Equity Investment


The newly established tokenized fund focuses on ISCG’s unique investment approach, which involves acquiring minority stakes directly in asset management firms rather than investing in the underlying funds they manage.


This method provides investors with a more direct and potentially lucrative avenue for private equity investment. Carlos Domingo, CEO of Securitize, highlighted the transformative potential of this partnership.


“By tokenizing alternative assets, we are breaking down barriers and allowing individual investors to participate in opportunities that were previously out of reach. This partnership underscores our commitment to leveraging technology to unlock new financial possibilities.”

The Rise of Real-World Asset Tokenization


Real-world asset tokenization has rapidly gained prominence in the crypto industry, now recognized as the second most profitable sector, trailing only behind memecoins. In the first half of 2024, projects focused on asset tokenization delivered a remarkable 214% return for investors.


This innovative financial model enables the tokenization of a wide range of assets, from government bonds to real estate. The process enhances efficiency and liquidity for investors, significantly boosting the economy’s money velocity. Industry projections estimate that by 2030, the real-world asset tokenization market could expand to a staggering $2 trillion in digitized assets.


Institutional Adoption and Future Prospects


The move towards real-world asset tokenization is a significant factor driving institutional interest in cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology. According to Kunal Bhasin of KPMG Canada, institutional investors are particularly keen on tokenized commercial real estate but are waiting for the market to mature and provide more robust investment options.


These developments not only attract large institutional players but also open doors for individual investors and family offices to engage in high-value commercial real estate investments traditionally reserved for larger entities. Investcorp and Securitize’s pioneering initiative marks a critical step in the evolution of financial markets, leveraging the power of blockchain to democratize access to sophisticated investment opportunities.
