Fund Management

Enzyme Finance:

  • A secondary market for your Enzyme vault shares: the best of both worlds: Enzyme’s V3 only allowed for minting and redemption of vault shares, and those ERC-20 tokens were not transferable to third parties. On V4 Sulu, vault managers can enable an alternative option for depositors who want to exit by transferring their shares instead of going through the classic redemption process. By default, shares are now transferable, but you can disable the feature if you prefer to prevent all transfers. Or you can opt for a middle ground and reserve the right to whitelist all secondary buyers before any transfer takes place. This new feature allows for the best of both worlds: the possibility of opening up a flexible secondary market without losing control over who owns what. Especially useful if you need to implement KYC checks and stay 100% compliant.
