Argentarius attended a breakfast seminar on alternative finance solutions in Milan at the 10th of December hosted by MB Consulting, an Italy based group of companies with operations in the fund industry, insurance industry and family office consultancy.

The seminar was opened by MB Consulting CEO Marco Basile with a general overview of bank-independent finance opportunities.

Following this, Nick Cowan CEO of the Gibraltar Stock Exchange gave an introduction to this regulated market and the possibilities to list corporate bonds as well as (asset backed) Exchange Traded Debt.

Argentarius chairman, Andreas Wölfl, held the main speech on Securitisation for Asset Managers, presenting the company and its solution of Exchange Traded Instruments (ETI) to the audience and has introduced the new solution of Exchange Traded Debt (ETD) for alternative finance beyond banks. Andreas highlighted the fast time-to-market of ETDs issued under an Argentarius issuance program as a one-stop-shop for marketplace based finance.

The closing words came from Malcolm Ruffell presenting the solution of Vista Fund.
At the end of the event a networking lunch was served giving the audience the opportunity to discuss specific issues and establish new business relationships.
