Tokensoft, a digital securities platform for enterprises and financial institutions, has partnered with New York-based Signature Bank in a bid to make security tokens click for real estate investors.
Most platforms for trading security tokens consist of alternative trading systems that are geared toward general investors, said Tokensoft CEO Mason Borda. However, Tokensoftâs is a private label platform, meaning tokens can be branded according to client needs.Â
Borda said he wants to allow investors to increase their real estate holdings or find easier exits. Most of Tokensoftâs customers are mid-sized funds â meaning the platform will be handling larger transactions with lower volumes.

âWeâve had an influx of real estate asset managers start working with us,â Borda said. âThis marketplace can be for different target verticals. It just so happens that our largest customer base is real estate.â
Itâs a more conservative platform in a sector of the crypto economy that has seen slow uptick in investor adoption. Through a series of partnerships, Tokensoft can offer FDIC-insured accounts, appraisal reports and broker-dealer services for asset managers in a bid to bring real estate investors to the tokenization table.Â
