Precious Stones can be a great investment and serve as collateral for a loan.
Unfortunately, that kind of investment is not part of classic asset allocation. It would be highly advantageous if asset managers could manage Precious Stones, compare value developments, or trade in parts of such items together with other alternative investments in their portfolio.
Through Securitization you are given the ability to create your own Precious Stones investment certificate! The value of the stones invested in is based on the market valuation from external professional experts. At maturity, the actual value (based on the real sale of the investment object) minus the costs, is paid out to the certificate holder or investor. Moreover, the note, as it has a Swiss ISIN, can easily be traded internationally.
This creates whole new possibilities for asset managers both in terms of products and in terms of guidance and handling. This applies not only to Precious Stones but also to other non-bankable assets, such as art, vehicles, or real estate.
