Today, Katalysen’s business is focused on adding value-generating stakeholders to private growth companies, such as strategic partners, investors and clients.
Katalysen has a track record of spotting companies where our competencies, experience and skill can add significant value. This is clearly demonstrated by the value appreciation in our portfolio companies. We expect the allocation of FinTech companies in the portfolio to increase.
One of our FinTech related projects is the development of an innovative digital instrument drawing on the experience gained from electronically traded derivatives and adopting it to a world where digital instruments and new assets such as electronic currencies emerge. Used appropriately such an instrument could potentially be used in the future to fund growth companies. Moreover, through smart-contract technology, the instrument will increase investor protection, automatically distribute fees, dividends and other pay-outs. In an enhanced version, the embedded smart-contract can further automate KYC (Know-Your-Client) and AML (Anti-Money-Laundering) due diligence processes.
With established operations in Stockholm and Geneva, Katalysen is now actively looking to add one or more locations over the next twelve months. New locations will be added to strengthen Katalysen’s core competencies and locations in Asia and in Southern Europe are currently being evaluated.
With a decided roadmap and with strong leadership Katalysen is well positioned to execute on its strategy.
