GENTWO’s board is getting expert advice for regulatory topics

Zurich, April 25, 2019 - The Zurich-based attorney Nicolas Ramelet strengthens GENTWO's contribution to shaping a promising financial market environment. His expertise will enrich not only the traditional, but also the emerging market for investment products.



Since 2019, Nicolas Ramelet has taken over another role as advisor to the board at GENTWO, the specialist for next-generation securitization solutions. The Zurich-based attorney is a proven expert in financial market regulation. Nicolas has been involved in various Fintech and Blockchain projects as a consultant. One of his goals was to find and implement the right regulatory strategy. As a pioneer of Swiss blockchain regulation, Nicolas has always supported a pragmatic yet thorough supervisory approach. Prior professional engagements of Nicolas include his positions as CEO of the largest self-regulatory organization in the parabanking sector, as an attorney of a top-tier law firm in Zurich and as a specialist with FINMA, focusing on financial market regulation for over 10 years. Nicolas holds law degrees of UCLA School of Law (USA) and Bern University (CH). Nicolas is a standing lecturer at the Institute of Financial Services Zug of Lucerne University of Applied Sciences. He is also an elected member of the arbitral tribunal of SRO Treuhand Suisse. In his field of expertise, he is involved in legislative projects and regularly publishes articles in legal journals and economic media.

Philippe A. Naegeli, CEO of GENTWO, said, "with Nicolas Ramelet we have gained an recognized expert in his field. With his profound know-how, he will help us to place the new generation of financial products in a context that takes into account all aspects of the financial market as a whole. Our collaboration will contribute to different interests and lead to further innovation regarding the overall sector and purposeful growth for our clients.”

GENTWO considers Swiss market conformity to be key factor

GENTWO enables professional investors to securitize bankable and (formerly) non-bankable assets (private equity, private debt, peer-to-peer lending, art, crypto assets and more) on a balance sheet-neutral basis. New underlying assets can now be securitized conventionally in so-called Swiss-compliant financial products with a Swiss ISIN code. It is a relatively new form of investment product that bridges the gap between the traditional and the new financial world. Because it has the potential to create added value and growth for the market as a whole, the regulatory perspective is particularly important.
For GENTWO, Swiss compliancy is a key factor and Nicolas Ramelet is an expert in this core area relevant to GENTWO. Against this background, his new role within GENTWO's Advisory Board will be of great benefit to many market participants. The financial solutions company GENTWO, that specializes in innovative securitization solutions, will thus gain lasting importance in shaping future market developments.
