After seeing through two years of the pandemic, it’s certainly starting to look a lot like Christmas! Despite COVID-19’s uncertainties, we remain on track to realise our vision of the future of finance, achieving some major milestones in our digital assets journey.
Our roots lie in traditional regulated capital markets services, where compliance and good governance are essential. We wanted to bring the same level of trust, transparency, and professionalism to the initial coin offering space during its heyday, as we saw significant potential in the blockchain technology behind it. The market has since evolved and is increasingly bullish on digital assets.
After transforming ourselves into a fintech company, investing and developing in blockchain powered marketplaces that will open new possibilities, our efforts have come to fruition in 2021.
SDAX, a digital asset exchange founded and built by RHT, received its recognised market operator licence from the Monetary Authority of Singapore and had its first securities token listing this year. Beyond RHT, SDAX has received the backing of strategic partners including ARA, Minterest, SingHaiyi, and Temasek-owned PSA International, setting the stage for a focus on real estate and ESG solutions.
We have developed a compelling alternative for corporate fundraising that will appeal to asset owners from around the world. Our institutional grade proprietary technology has passed the strictest scrutiny and is ready to give us a global reach. Singapore’s reputation as a trusted global financial hub gives us an added boost.
We are not alone, major financial institutions have also entered the digital asset space, a move which we welcome as it presents opportunities for collaboration and reaffirms the transformational potential of blockchain technology.
Following the development of SDAX, we have amassed deep insights and a proven track record as a technology firm delivering digital asset solutions. This led us to launch the AlDigi Group, an integrated digital financial services provider.
AlDigi builds on its foundation of traditional corporate finance with next-gen technology to deliver a global platform for value creation, liquidity and investment. The AlDigi Group’s subsidiaries are RHT Capital, RHT DigiCapital, and RHT i-Assets Advisory. Each play a complementary role to provide the full spectrum of financial services, with new capabilities in tokenisation and NFTs.
To bring talent and technology together, we have welcomed a creative and vibrant bunch with decades of experience to the RHT DigiCapital team which will help expand our ecosystem for deal origination, fund tokenisation, asset management and distribution, bringing new alternative assets to institutional and accredited investors.
We believe the future of finance is both digital and green. Our investee, AirCarbon Exchange, was recognised as the Best Carbon Exchange globally in Environment Finance’s Voluntary Carbon Market Rankings 2021. We believe that digital finance can be an enabler to support sustainability efforts. Together with RHT’s sustainability consultancy, the AlDigi Group entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with global port operator PSA International to explore co-creation and investment in ESG digital asset solutions to further advance the goals of decarbonisation in ports and supply chains.
Since we took our first step ten years ago, the RHT journey has always been about disrupting the market and bringing greater value to our clients. We started with an alternative business structure to provide a holistic eco-system of professional services. Going forward, we are breaking new ground to bring alternative corporate finance solutions through digital finance.
Clients can look forward to understanding this new market of the metaverse, Web 3.0, and NFTs through the various products and services that we will be rolling out through the course of 2022. We hope to open new doors for you in this new digital world as we continue to ensure the highest standards of governance, regulatory compliance, and cyber security robustness.
We thank you for making 2021 a great year! We wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
