About GenTwo and GenTwo Digital
Zurich-based innovative securitization specialist GenTwo has invented a new generation of financial products. The company creates securitization platforms for asset managers, banks, family offices and venture capital investors, enabling professional investors to easily invest in bankable and previously non-bankable assets.

Institutional investors can use GenTwo’s securitization solution to realise their own product and business innovations, to make any type of assets investable and to help shape new, sustainable markets. Private investors in Switzerland can also benefit from these innovative products via their financial intermediaries, thereby giving GenTwo the opportunity to open and expand its customer base to retail investors.
