SDAX and Ownera provide global distribution for private market digital securities

SDAX, a private markets investment and trading platform based in Singapore, has partnered with Ownera, provider of a global inter-trading network, to distribute digital securities over the Ownera open-source FinP2P protocol network.

SDAX works with companies and institutions to raise funds in a fast, secure and cost-effective way through blockchain technology, in the process making these private market investment opportunities accessible to investors via fractionalized ownership. 

Licensed by the Monetary Authority of Singapore, SDAX focuses on institutional-grade real estate and environmental, social and governance (ESG)-related investments. SDAX is backed by strategic shareholders such as ESR (APAC’s largest real asset manager), PSA (global port operator and supply chain integrator) – a Temasek Company, Straits Trading and RHT Group.

With SDAX’s exchange, it provides secondary market liquidity and enables its investors to participate in trading their digital securities. The partnership with Ownera will provide an additional channel for SDAX’s investors to trade these private market digital securities over an interoperable global ecosystem of exchanges and institutions – opening up possibilities for both investors and issuers.

Ownera brought the industry together to develop the FinP2P open-source routing protocol to solve this problem by orchestrating the instant exchange of digital assets held on any blockchain platform, for digital cash held on any ledger. It supports primary issuance, secondary trading and DeFi-style instant borrowing against assets pledged as collateral. This routing network has the power to open up digital distribution for the private markets and unlock global liquidity in a way that no single institution or exchange can achieve on its own.
