SWARM’s Philipp Pieper shares his views on digital securities on Ampliv TV

Philipp Pieper sat down with Ampliv TV host Yuree Hong for an hour-long interview about digital securities. While Philipp shares his views on a variety of topics, he also touched on the terminologies representing digital securities. Philipp: “people gravitate to Security Token Offerings (STOs) because the nomenclature similar to IPO and ICO. I think it’s the wrong terminology because it doesn’t matter whether it’s a token or not.” He continues by stating we’re not recreating an ICO infrastructure, going on to say “I do like digital securities a lot for the simple fact that this is about giving securities a digital wrapper — which don’t even have to be blockchain based”.

SWARM COO Chris Eberle at 2019 Block Plus Summit

On Tuesday, May 28th, Resolute.Fund will launch the first of a series of blockchain-based funds to invest in non-performing mortgage loans.

Resolute.Fund, with a focus on distressed mortgage loans, is targeting a net return of 18–20%. Distressed mortgage loans have historically provided an above average return in the real estate asset class, with the security of owning the most senior loan on a property. The distressed mortgage loans will be primarily senior mortgage loans on residential or commercial real estate where the borrower has failed to make payments or are selling at distressed prices for other reasons. The Fund will seek to acquire the loans at discounted prices to principal balance, manage the loans, and, after restructuring of the loan or foreclosure, exit at higher prices than acquired via refinancing, resale of loan, or sale of underlying property.

This is a lucrative opportunity to invest in distressed mortgage loans. This fund is limited to USD 5 million in size. The offering will run through the end of June, and includes bonuses in tokens to investors for each stage of the offering. Our investors have a liquidity option, and control of their investment, as Resolute.Fund offers the digital fund share class on the Ethereum blockchain — tradable peer to peer and with other major ERC20 cryptocurrencies and stablecoins. We will accept fiat currencies as well as major cryptocurrencies for investment.

Resolute.Fund has been investing in mortgage loans on behalf of investors for 20+ years. The digital security and our fund offering are fully compliant and subject to U.S. federal security regulations.

Our Philosophy:

  • A diversified portfolio of real estate managed by professionals can lead to optimal risk-adjusted returns.
  • A liquid, tradable share class gives investors flexibility and control.
  • Value is created for our investors by combining these two.

We look forward to your interest in Resolute.Fund.

Our law firm is McCarter & English.
