Defining the Concept of Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)

A Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) is a type of legal entity established for a particular function; it is frequently used to separate financial risk or to finance particular assets. Companies and organizations frequently use SPVs to raise capital without jeopardizing their own balance sheets.

In the financial markets, SPVs can be used to issue securities or other financial instruments, such as certificates, that represent ownership in a particular group of assets or cash flows. These instruments frequently receive a special identification number, such as an International Securities Identification Number (ISIN), which is used to track and trade securities on international financial markets.

Gentwo is a Swiss service provider that offers financial intermediaries and institutional investors custom securitization solutions, which is a novel approach to managing SPVs. The company’s SPV platform is made to be adaptable, quick, and economical, enabling customers to effectively securitize any kind of asset, including illiquid and unconventional assets like wine, art, or cryptocurrency.

In order to provide a fully digital, end-to-end solution for creating and trading SPV-issued certificates, Gentwo’s platform uses a proprietary technology called “Structured Ledger Technology,” which combines blockchain and securitization. Clients can take advantage of blockchain’s security and immutability while continuing to use conventional financial instruments thanks to this technology.

One distinctive feature of Gentwo’s approach to SPVs is that it separates the underlying asset from the certificate issued by the SPV, enabling clients to create certificates that are not linked to a particular asset. This implies that investors are not constrained to investing in a particular asset class, but can instead invest in a particular strategy or theme. The time it takes for new products to reach the market can be shortened and liquidity increased with this strategy.

TMF Group, Ocorian, Alter Domus, Vistra, Crestbridge, Aztec Group, Sanne, IQ-EQ, JTC Group, Wilmington Trust, First American Trust, Pacific Premier Trust, Opus Bank, UMB Bank, The Bank of New York Mellon, US Bank, Citibank, Wells Fargo, and JPMorgan Chase are additional businesses that provide SPV services in Europe and the United States. It’s crucial to remember that this list is not comprehensive, and companies should do their own research and due diligence before choosing an SPV provider to make sure they select a reputable and trustworthy partner.

Companies like Gentwo are probably going to play a bigger and bigger role in the SPV space as the financial markets keep changing, opening up new and exciting opportunities.
