Team Spotlight – Julian Kwan, Co-Founder & CEO

Julian Kwan founded multiple companies, including InvestaX, the first company to tokenize VCC Structure, Digital SPACs, and raised 25 deals with a total project value of over $1 billion. He is a six-time founder currently focusing on leading the transformation of private markets into the digital era.

He is also the creator of the world’s first digital SPACs and digital ESOPs and has spent most of his time creating businesses in new markets and industries, ranging from social media to real estate, property technology, and blockchain.

Julian operates his venture arm, 2H Capital, and maintains advisory roles with family offices investing in real estate, fintech, and blockchain-based startups.

Besides being busy with revolutionizing finance, Julian is also an EIR (Entrepreneur in Residence) at INSEAD, Singapore campus, mentoring the next startup founders. He has proven experience in building teams that require very diverse skill sets and successfully navigating the necessary regulations that are needed to launch new fintech platforms in the fintech space.

“Since 2013, when they launched the first STO, a lot has happened, and in recent years, key infrastructure has been built,” Julian explained on why IX Swap was founded. “This includes broker-dealers, exchanges, and custodians to legally and technically handle the issuance and trading of STOs, which requires different licenses than cryptocurrency platforms. However, one of the last key missing pieces for the STO industry’s growth was to increase liquidity. This was not possible due to strict licensing requirements and a lack of market makers. Our solution was to connect leading DeFi and CeFi platforms to grow liquidity.”

As a pioneer in the STO industry, Julian and his team realized that creating a platform like IX Swap would solve the last and most significant problem in growing the STO industry, a liquidity solution. IX Swap allows anyone who has issued an STO, or invested in an STO, to start the first liquidity pools in a compliant and easy-to-use way.

IX Swap is a complex project that requires the best minds experienced in capital markets, regulations, technology, and economics.

“The STO market for real estate, private equity, VC, and startups are a $7.5 trillion opportunity today and forecasted to grow to $15 trillion by 2025, so we are super excited to be first to market on this,” Julian added. “Our vision for IX Swap is to be the world’s leading liquidity provider for the STO and TSO industry.”

IX Swap is the world’s 1st DeFi AMM & Liquidity Pools for security tokens and tokenized stocks.
