Transformative Benefits
The impact of Gen II's solutions included:

  • Expanded Opportunities for Fund Sponsors: Easing the administrative burden and opening new distribution channels.

  • Market Accessibility for Retail Investors: Simplifying entry into private markets, previously marred by administrative complexities.

A Step Towards Inclusive Investing
Gen II's approach significantly reduced onboarding times, from 72 hours to 12 hours, while ensuring compliance with regulatory standards. This highlights Gen II's commitment to innovation and marks a significant step towards inclusive investing, providing retail investors with opportunities that were once out of reach.

Gen II's digital transformation exemplifies how strategic automation and process improvements can dismantle traditional barriers, and increase access to private market investments.
