Baar/Erlenbach - The investment company RealUnit Schweiz is now offering an automated marketplace for its shares. The shares totalling more than 6 million francs issued as part of its third capital increase this year can be purchased as listed bearer securities or in the form of share tokens.

For the first time, RealUnit Schweiz AG from Baar in the canton of Zug is offering two distinct possibilities of acquiring shares in the company: Investors have the choice between a listed and tokenized variant by way of which they can participate in the company. This means that a stake can be held in the form of a classic share in a bank deposit or as a share token via the Ethereum blockchain.

After the capital increase was oversubscribed in the first quarter of 2022, around 6 million new RealUnit shares were subscribed for. “While the majority of people have still decided in favor of the listed bearer share, acceptance of the share token has already been promising among the public”, explains CEO Dani Stüssi in the press release, adding that: “We are also pleased to be the first listed company in Switzerland to offer the automated purchase of our stock tokens via our website”.

For the tokenized variant, RealUnit, which was founded in 2017 and is listed on the BX Swiss, uses the Ethereum blockchain technology provided by Aktionariat AG, based in Erlenbach in the canton of Zurich. The start-up offers a platform to issue, manage and trade tokenized shares. According to information from the company itself, companies benefit from better access to capital, while investors profit from a broader investment universe. Moreover, share tokens can be transferred 24/7.
