Avrio’s ATS technology, Arkonis, is designed to be used by the operators of private markets that facilitate the issuance and secondary trading of securities and includes: a Quotation Bureau, a Transfer Agent, and a Qualified Matching Engine for LP investors.

Avrio’s public market technology includes: an API farm for exchange management (EM), order management (OM), portfolio management (PM), and client management (CM) – and routes to global public markets.

The technology platform combined with the strong alignment that both Avrio and DLMI have as it relates to ethics, laws, rules and regulation, and the exceptional experience in the future of securities is what makes this relationship extremely special. Now that we are utilizing Avrio’s technology, team, and licenses within DLMI we are well positioned to continue to execute our strategy to be a global leader in digital securities.”

Lawrence Wintermeyer, Avrio CEO, commented, “DLMI’s strategic investment in Avrio offers outstanding opportunities and synergies across the DLMI network of companies for the tokenization of real-world-assets (RWA) on Avrio’s registered dFMI as well as opportunities to invest in Avrio’s companies and commercial partners that are growing the $16 trillion RWA-tokenization market opportunity.”
