Promoting Efficient Allocation of Capital

IOI Capital and markets, llc

Using iownit technology to help the private securities market evolve

Why we started


At the core of the Firm’s business value proposition lies a Blockchain based platform for issuance and secondary trading of digital private securities. We believe that the availability of the iownit platform will meet a large market need and provide tangible benefits to the capital seekers and investors in the private securities market.

Technology has had a profound impact on financial services in the US. New payment methods (e.g. PayPal) enabled the growth of e-commerce. Peer-to-peer lending redefined personal loan markets. Robo-advisors are changing the face of wealth management. Technology has had a massive impact on the listed securities markets, OTC derivatives markets, and other financial markets by improving information flow, execution speed, and overall efficiencies in these markets.

Private securities and investments, a large segment of global capital markets, has not benefited from technological innovation yet. Private capital plays an important economic role. It supports early stage entrepreneurs in developing innovative ideas, enables businesses to grow and reach their potential and provides crucial fuel for many different sectors.

The iownit platform is designed to address the challenges of private placement markets identified above and facilitate capital formation and flow from interested accredited investors to new investment opportunities.

Investments in private placements, and start-up investments in particular, are speculative and involve a high degree of risk. Those investors who cannot afford to lose their entire investment should not invest in start-ups. Companies seeking startup investments through private equity issuance tend to be in earlier stages of development and their business model, products and services may not yet be fully developed, operational or tested in the public marketplace. There is no guarantee that the stated valuation and other terms is accurate or in agreement with the market or industry valuations. Additionally, investors will receive illiquid and/or restricted securities that may be subject to holding period requirements and/or liquidity concerns. In the most sensible investment strategy for start-up investing, start-ups should only be part of your overall investment portfolio. Further, the start-up portion of your portfolio may include a balanced portfolio of different start-ups.
