Globacap named one of the UK’s most disruptive companies

London, 11 July 2019: Globacap, has been recognised as one of the UK’s most disruptive companies in the Disruption50 index.

The Disruption50 index lists the UK’s most disruptive technology companies across all industries. An independent judging panel, consisting of representatives from 18 companies including Axa, IBM, Shell, Vodafone and Hotwire, selected the finalists from a list of nominated tech companies disrupting business across all sectors of the economy.

Globacap is a market leading automated capital markets platform for digital securities such as shares, bonds, and funds, and recently became the UK’s first fully regulated digital security offering and administration platform. Any of Globacap’s products – capital raising, capital administration, or custody – can be used independently. Globacap is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Globacap’s innovative technology creates a digital token that forms the legal security – whether a share, bond, or fund interest. The token’s in-built processes facilitate further transactions by automatically fulfilling the legal requirements of a transfer of ownership. Such transactions are recorded on the underlying blockchain. This is different to other types of security tokens that merely provide a digital receipt of ownership.

Globacap is at the forefront of providing a more open capital market, leveraging blockchain technology, to make private investments more efficient. This is expected to spur a new wave of economic growth as previously illiquid investments become accessible.

Blockchain is increasingly recognised as a stable and innovative technology that can transform the financial services sector, offering greater security and efficiency. Globacap’s platform leverages blockchain to bring capital raising and securities administration into the digital world, while still complying with existing regulations.
