CEO SIX (Zurich Stock Exchange)

In 2016 Mauro Andriotto founded AFS - Andriotto Financial Services – advising, in the following two years, more than 50 successful ICOs - Initial Coin Offering. In 2018 AFS was included by «ICO Bench» among the top 10 blockchain advisor in blockchain capital markets on a list of about 60,000 advisors.

In 2018 the team and the service portfolio were expanded. Recently the advisory service of AFS has been focused on STO operations - Security Token Offering - participating in the first authorized digital IPO in Germany authorized by BaFin.

The AFS team is structured in specialized departments in the following areas:

  • Finance (prospectus, evaluation, information memorandum, etc);
  • Legal (Switzerland, Europe and USA: legal opinions, incorporation, legal review, etc);
  • IT (smart contract, exchange, blockchain, etc);
  • Marketing and digital marketing.

In March 2019 AFS became an equity partner of SMC, an important family office based in Switzerland, but with a physical presence of 20 offices in 15 countries around the world.

In mid-2019 AFS worked on the approval of the first “Articles of Incorporation” in Switzerland natively blockchain that allows the maintenance of the shareholders registry on the blockchain.

At the end of 2019, EDSX was founded in Zug, Switzerland, in the heart of the Crypto Valley, the first blockchain platform that combines the power of traditional finance, with the opportunities offered by the most advanced information technologies (ICT).

Our smart contracts, that regulate transactions between different parties, have been tested by some of the most renowned companies in cyber security. Furthermore, we also keep offline backup of the transactions in different geographical locations.
CYBER SECURITY – ISSUERS AND INVESTORS
Even if a digital security carries a smaller amount of risk compared to a traditional cryptocurrency, we do our best to keep issuers and investors safe, providing them with all the best practices regarding security. This is why we have provided a complete guide on how to keep safe your tokens (ex. MEW connect), you can find the relative information in the section How it works
COMPLIANCE – EDSX AND ISSUERS*
EDSX is fully compliant with all the Swiss laws related to financial intermediaries, banking, anti-money laundering and organized trading facilities.
EDSX also requires issuers on the platform to be fully compliant with the national and international laws on financial securities offering. This may require, before launching a digital IPO, obtaining an authorization from the market authority, to deposit a prospectus, to audit financial accounts and so on.
We believe that compliance with the law is one of the ways to protect investors and this is why we care about it.
COMPLIANCE – INVESTORS
EDSX requires all the users to be in compliance with the national and international laws on KYC – Know Your Customer – and AML – Anti Money Laundering – in particular with the Swiss AML act that requires due diligence on the money flows accepted by the Swiss financial intermediaries.
* The issuer is always the one finally responsible for compliance with the laws (prospectus publication, authorization of the market authority, etc) and it is responsible for the information and data presented in the offer documents.
