Skyhook DAWNTM
Digital Assets Wealth Network

Skyhook Capital Pte. Ltd. has launched the first marketplace for digital assets with full integration into conventional investment product distribution networks.

Skyhook’s Digital Assets Wealth Network (Skyhook DAWNTM) provides a single connection point on the cloud for conventional e-wealth and digital banking channels to access digital securities and services over distributed ledger technology.

As a gateway for digital securities distribution and management, Skyhook DAWNTM incorporates a proven architecture with a universal API to support business integration into multiple distribution channels and the solution components to source, transact and settle digital securities.

Originators

We help Fund Managers, Dealers and Brokers to deploy a fully digital DLT based origination and administration solution to distribute bonds, equities, loans, funds and other securities.

Our goal is to simplify how to improve distributing financial products throughout the global supply chain starting at the point of origination, automating cumbersome administration tasks, enable the delivery of accurate, immutable product data and connecting to an electronic global network of distributors.

Liquidity & Exchange Venues

We help Digital Securities exchanges and liquidity providers securely transact with wealth management buyside institutions using their existing platforms deployed to manage their investment portfolios.

Our service offering connects digital asset marketplaces to e-wealth networks and incorporates instant settlement through direct debit of cash accounts across the banking institutions on the R3/Corda network.

Platform Providers

We work with e-wealth, digital banking, custody and origination platform providers to integrate their solutions into a global distribution network for digital assets and securities.

We achieve business integration by eliminating process and data silos, ensuring the decisions on selecting investment products for a portfolio is seamless across both digital and conventional securities.

Wealth Managers

We work with Private and Consumer Banks, Family Offices and Independent Financial Advisors offering wealth management institutions the ability to stay competitive as demand for digital securities grows.

As the global financial services market migrates over to digital currencies and securities, it will result in increasing volume of innovative investment products offering greater returns to investors through new innovations in financial structuring combined with lower costs through automation.
