SWIC
Gateway

Combining the best of both worlds: Traditional finance & blockchain.

VISION

“SWIC Digital enables all people to invest in a secure, fast and affordable way via our blockchain-based investment platform”

Stefan Bucher
Founder

THE CURRENT CHALLENGE

The current financial system is costly, inefficient and very opaque. We address several issues in the existing financial system.

Costly intermediaries

The current method for recording and validating transactions requires many trusted third-parties including banks, custodians, clearing houses, brokers, and exchanges, each creating friction and charging significant fees.

Insecure infrastructure, inefficient

Existing intermediaries provide limited level of orders, which have single points of failure and are increasingly affected by data breaches.
Moreover, transferring value – especially across borders – is slow and inconvenient.

Exclusive access to finance

The current global financial system is only “global” insofar as certain people in certain countries can access banking and investment products around the world. Most financial products and services are accessible only to high net worth individuals (HNWIs).

SWIC Gateway

By leveraging blockchain technology to remove costly intermediaries and to overcome institutional, and often arbitrary, barriers to access, SWIC GATEWAY aims to provide the following benefits to its users: Low transaction cost, fast secure international transactions and inclusive access worldwide.

Our Solution

Value Proposition

The SWIC GATEWAY will revolutionize finance by opening a portal that connects the traditional finance world and crypto assets within a secure, fully compliant, and trustworthy framework.

The SWIC GATEWAY is founded by our team of asset managers and supported by a global network of licensed finance professionals.

We are uniquely positioned to capture and share value with other industry players, build alliances to shape blockchain solutions and industry standards, and lead the integration of traditional and crypto finance. To realise our vision, we connect investors to investment opportunities using a transaction platform that is fast, efficient and compliant.

Technology

Blockchain technology allows anyone to transact value in fast, secure and low-cost manner through disintermediation of third parties like banks.

As a pioneer in the industry, we have identified the complex challenges of regulatory uncertainty, usability, and technical issues that hinder adoption of blockchain technology.

Current platforms do not provide seamless transactions between crypto assets and traditional assets. To overcome this challenges SWIC GATEWAY is building a network that makes navigating the complex new investment landscape user friendly, convenient, secure, and accessible.

The range of financial products and services offered will provide more opportunities to more investors, service providers, and business who see the potential of blockchain technology but are hesitant to enter an immature industry.

Access

Realising our vision requires building a new solution: a portal that includes not just crypto assets and traditional finance products, but also a marketplace for the wealth management services and a community to support investors and business on a wide range of needs, from portfolio management to custody, from legal and compliance consulting to tax and accounting services, and from alternative investments to los cost saving plans.

Our approach delivers personalised, innovative wealth management solutions to a greater number of people than ever before.
