Dear Akropolis community,

We’re very pleased to announce that we have joined the Multichain Asset Managers Association (or MAMA) — a trade body representing asset management companies and technology providers that are interested in working towards a new vision for asset management by harnessing bleeding-edge technology like blockchain and other decentralized protocols to ensure the highest standards in transparency, security and accountability. We’re incredibly excited about this development, which will bring value both to us and our community.

Joining 30+ fast growing innovators in the space, including the likes of Circle, 0x, and Melonport, as well as forward thinking financial firms like Credit Suisse and a major pension Dutch fund APG, is a fantastic opportunity for Akropolis to connect with projects sharing our vision on forward-looking asset management through the use of blockchain technology. We adopt a complementary mentality, as opposed to a competitive one, and actively seek to collaborate with teams in order to turbocharge the efficiency of all parties involved.

“We are thrilled to have Akropolis as a member,” said Hansjoerg Hettich, MAMA’s executive director, “They fully share our vision and are building the future with a new immutable and transparent smart-contract-based pension fund infrastructure.”

At Akropolis, we strongly believe that fragmentation and legacy components is what has led to the technological stagnation plaguing the pensions infrastructure of today, and aim to avoid falling into the same trap for the future generations — different chains need to be able to communicate and transfer data and value in a trustless manner to fulfill the seamless portability aspect of funds that is at the core of the Akropolis mission.

Akropolis identifies four pillars that make up the network — individuals, institutions, developers, and asset managers. We strive to forge meaningful relationships and strategic partnerships with stakeholders in all of these categories, so connecting with MAMA has been an important step forward for us and will accelerate our development.

The MAMA mission aligns with our own — freeing individuals and their savings from murky, insecure funds with the help of innovative decentralized technologies, and redirecting them towards a vastly clearer and safer alternative, where they are placed at the centre of the ecosystem rather than at its periphery.

We thoroughly look forward to the benefits our partnership will reap for all Akropolis clients, and the ecosystem at large. The input of the Multichain Asset Managers Association will be invaluable in developing a new decentralized pensions infrastructure.
