Swiss FinTech GenTwo secures $15m Series A investment


GenTwo, a firm specialising in the securitisation of both bankable and non-bankable assets, has accumulated $15m in a Series A raise.

This significant fundraising effort was spearheaded by US investor, Point72 Ventures. Following this, Pete Casella, the Senior Partner and Co-Head of FinTech investments at Point72 Ventures, is set to grace GenTwo’s board of directors with his presence.

Diving into GenTwo’s origins, the company was birthed in Zurich in 2018. Central to its operations is the innovative GenTwo PRO platform, a groundbreaking financial engineering network. Through this platform, investment professionals are empowered to securitise and swiftly introduce various assets or investment strategies to the market as bankable securities.

One of the company’s standout features is its ability to make previously perceived as alternative and non-bankable assets like real estate, digital assets, and even fine art, accessible to every investor. When one considers that the global market for such assets stands at an astounding $78tn, the potential of GenTwo’s offerings becomes clear. Serving the increasing demands of asset managers and their clients, the company delivers fresh, diversifying financial products that promote active portfolio management.

GenTwo’s growing influence is evident. They’ve catered to over 250 clients across 26 nations, introduced in excess of 1,200 investment products, and currently oversee more than $3bn under service.

Pete Casella from Point72 Ventures shared, “At Point72 Ventures we like to back founders with bold ideas. GenTwo is a good example of what we are looking for, and we believe that the founders Patrick Loepfe and Philippe A. Naegeli are the right team to execute on their ideas.”

Patrick Loepfe, Co-Founder and Chairman of GenTwo, conveyed, “We have always been a strongly technology-focused company and have worked hard to create what we believe is a unique securitisation platform that offers clients unmatched simplicity, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.”

Furthering the sentiment, Philippe A. Naegeli, CEO and Co-Founder of GenTwo, expressed, “To have a venture capital firm like Point72 Ventures reach all the way across the ocean and choose us for its first investment in Switzerland is highly gratifying.”

Looking forward, GenTwo aspires to utilise the freshly procured funds to propel its international expansion and further hone its financial engineering platform.
