The world is going digital – and digital assets are becoming a part of our world

For the first time, investors can purchase a certificate that reflects the asset class of a fund in its own digital twin in a regulated market environment. The digital twins on the Gridl Global Macro UI can be obtained by private investors directly via the tradias platform at www.tradias.de. This yields in several advantages for investors:

  • 24/7 trading of the digital twins on the secondary market possible at a later date
  • Same day billing (t=0)
  • No initial charge when purchasing the retail share classes
  • Traditional deposit with a bank is not necessary
  • Independent custody or provision of a customer wallet with tradias possible
  • Trading is also possible for investors from countries outside the EU who previously have not had the opportunity to open a securities account in Germany
  • No tax disadvantage for investors

Manfred Gridl, Managing Director/Owner of Gridl Asset Management GmbH: “With the Digital Twin, we have created the first successful combination of the traditional and the digital fund world in Germany! We have thus taken an important step for the entire fund industry in the future of “digital assets”. Digitally savvy investors now have the opportunity to invest in a digital twin certificate with a mutual fund as the underlying. Interested parties can buy the Digital Twin with just a few clicks on their smartphone! It is important to note that nothing changes in our proven investment concept of the “all-weather investment strategy”: The objective of the Gridl Global Macro UI is still to generate a positive return in the medium term and at the same time avoid major losses – i.e., be ready for all “weather conditions” on the financial markets.”

Nils von Schoenaich-Carolath, Managing Director Digital Assets Bankhaus Scheich and project manager on the part of tradias: “With the first digital twin via a certificate on a mutual fund in Germany, tradias and Bankhaus Scheich validate their innovative pioneering role in the digitization of the German and European financial markets. Investors can now invest in products that were previously not accessible to them, making Germany a more attractive financial center. After the tokenization of real estate and the first corporate convertible bond in accordance with the Electronic Securities Act (eWpG) in Germany, we and our partners are again the first to offer a financial product in a regulated market environment in Germany. The tokenization of a UCITS fund as well as of ETFs, VC investments and art objects will follow shortly. By doing so, we create financial products that everyone can invest directly and cost-effectively, that are more transparent and liquid, and that contribute to the democratization and liberalization of the investment market. As a next step, we will make the security tokens available for trading on our own secondary market platform.”
