SILC Group Partners with Tokeny to Drive Digitalization of Alternative Assets


The SILC Group (SILC), a renowned alternative assets solutions provider based in Australia with over $2 billion in funds under supervision, has announced a strategic partnership with Tokeny, a leading institutional tokenization solution provider. This collaboration aims to advance SILC’s digitalization vision by transitioning alternative assets onto the blockchain through tokenization.

The partnership kicks off with a pilot project focused on tokenizing a test fund using Tokeny’s innovative tokenization infrastructure. This initiative will evaluate blockchain’s potential to eventually replace the conventional centralized systems currently utilized by SILC to administer funds, facilitating the convergence of investors and capital seekers within the alternative assets industry.

By leveraging the collective expertise of both entities, the goal is to offer compliant tokenization solutions for alternative assets not only in Australia but also across the region. This will involve delivering institutional-grade solutions for issuing and managing real-world asset tokens throughout their lifecycle.

This announcement signifies a monumental stride in the alternative assets sector as institutional participation in blockchain gains momentum and major players enter the market. Traditional methods of issuing financial products often involve complex, time-consuming processes through cumbersome systems. Blockchain technology promises to streamline transactions, automate processes, and provide round-the-clock accessibility through a unified global infrastructure.

SILC will utilize the ERC-3643 token smart contract standard, enabling automated compliance validation processes and facilitating control over real-world asset tokens while retaining blockchain’s inherent features like immutability and interoperability.

Commenting on the partnership, Koby Jones, CEO of The SILC Group, expressed enthusiasm, stating, “Blockchain technology offers a potential paradigm shift in the efficiency of capital markets, with The SILC Group seeking to pass these efficiency and service improvement gains along to our clients. We are excited to be working with Tokeny on this pilot as we explore ways to further support our clients and enhance risk management activities, as well as increase the velocity and scalability of the solutions we provide.”

Luc Falempin, CEO of Tokeny, emphasized the transformative potential of tokenization, stating, “Our collaboration with The SILC Group underscores the growing recognition among regulated institutions of tokenization’s tremendous potential. It’s no longer a question of if tokenization will occur, but rather, when it will fundamentally transform the financial landscape.”
