Soon – later this month! – The Tokenizer will proudly launch the world’s first AI-powered regulatory GPT – or RegGPT – made specifically to cover the space of asset tokenization and digital assets. 

The RegGPT will be an integrated part of The Tokenizer’s SaaS product, The Token RegRadar

With this game-changing AI upgrade, The Token RegRadar will be a critical tool for any professional who needs to understand regulatory requirements and stay updated with regulatory changes and news within the asset tokenization and digital asset industry 

But what kind of question is the new RegGPT actually capable of answering? In this countdown series, we will show you some examples: 

  • In the second half of 2023, Hamilton Lane started tokenizing private funds on ADDX. Can you tell a bit about Hamilton Lane and explain how and why they did that? What are the main regulatory challenges of doing what Hamilton Lane is doing?
  • Hamilton Lane is a global private markets investment management firm, which has been focused on private markets investing for over three decades. The firm manages and advises on a significant amount of assets, with a broad range of investment strategies across different private market sectors and geographies. Their expertise in private markets makes them a key player in the industry.

    In the second half of 2023, Hamilton Lane began tokenizing private funds on ADDX, a move that aligns with the broader industry trend of leveraging blockchain technology to improve access and efficiency in private market investing. The tokenization of private funds on ADDX allows for fractional ownership of these funds, which lowers the minimum investment threshold and opens up opportunities to a wider range of investors who previously may not have had access due to high entry barriers.

    The main regulatory challenges associated with tokenizing private funds, such as those managed by Hamilton Lane, include:

    Securities Regulations: Tokenized funds must comply with securities laws, which can vary significantly across jurisdictions. This includes ensuring proper registration, disclosures, and compliance with trading regulations.

    Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC): Tokenized investments must adhere to AML and KYC regulations to prevent financial crimes. This requires robust systems to verify the identities of investors and monitor transactions.

    Cross-Border Compliance: When tokens are offered to investors in multiple countries, issuers must navigate a complex web of international laws and ensure compliance with each jurisdiction’s regulations.

    Investor Protection: Regulators are focused on protecting investors from fraud and ensuring they have access to sufficient information to make informed decisions. This includes transparency about the fund’s performance and management.

    Custody and Security: Secure custody solutions are required to prevent theft or loss of digital assets. This involves safeguarding private keys and ensuring the security of the blockchain infrastructure.

    Market Integrity: Trading platforms for tokenized assets must have systems in place to prevent market abuse and maintain fair and orderly markets.

    Tax Implications: The tax treatment of tokenized assets is an evolving area. Issuers and investors must consider the tax implications in various jurisdictions.

    Enforcement of Rights: The legal framework for the ownership, transfer, and succession of digital tokens must be clear and enforceable.

    By addressing these regulatory challenges, Hamilton Lane and ADDX can provide a secure and compliant platform for tokenizing private funds, thereby expanding investor access to private market opportunities.

Previously we’ve asked the RegGPT “How would you evaluate the developments we have seen globally in the asset tokenization space during the second half of 2023?

If you want to know more about a subject, you can simply ask the RegGPT follow-up questions or use The Token RegRadar’s other features like the search engine, the collection of law texts and more.
