of the future,
Opening new market
Bringing tokenized assets to the compliant markets
ABE enhances, not replaces, the existing capital markets ecosystem by taking advantage of its proven infrastructure, combined with distributed ledger technology, opening up the marketplace to new assets and all investor classes.
Powering the capital markets to work harder for all participants
ABE bridges tokenized assets and the compliant capital markets with a licensed token-ready securities exchange, compatible custody, and an adaptable market structure.
The ABE advantage
One exchange, multiple jurisdictions
ABE is the only truly-global exchange where issuers make one public registration with one regulator to access all investor classes around the world. One and done.
Securities exchange licenses
As a Tier 1 securities exchange, enhanced by electronic trading licenses (e.g. ATS), ABE delivers a single marketplace for multiple asset classes (stocks, bonds, options, etc.) that enables both tokenized and traditional financial instruments.
Customizable market structure empowers issuers/investors
Having the flexibility to set the market structure (with a flexible-auction technology) to fit your liquidity needs delivers direct access to the global capital markets for a fraction of the cost, places investors on an even playing field, and dramatically increases transparency.
A platform for performance
Our exchange combines the security and reliability of traditional securities exchange technology with the innovative and cost savings of distributed ledger technology. ABE's core technology was built in a joint effort with (and is operated by) the London Stock Exchange. Our technology can integrate with most global trading firms, banks and operational systems.
ABE and our global regulatory attorneys, White & Case, have partnered closely with regulators to ensure our offering is responsible, compliant and legally sound.
