As an independent platform, Enlyte is a pioneer in the industry by transferring the full investment process into the digital world. This means that Enlyte offers a holistic digital concept instead of only covering isolated parts of the value chain.

The goal is clear, as soon as the regulatory framework allow it, we will expand our product offering to support the issuance of digital funds on the Blockchain.
Daniel Andemeskel, Head of Innovation Management

The innovation driver: A fully digital value chain is the solution

Enlyte provides a comprehensive white-label offering, and it is covering for the first time the main phases of the investment process fully digitally on a single platform – from client onboarding and the issuance of token-based structures (STOs – Security Token Offering) to administration and reporting. Asset managers and fund initiators can use the platform to issue, manage and distribute tokens. “The platform has been developed proprietary by the team around our Blockchain experts Daniel Andemeskel and Khai Uy Pham. Enlyte is the logical continuation of our innovation success story,” says Michael Reinhard, CEO of the Universal Investment Group.
