Jeffrey Sweeney served as Awards Sponsor at the first-ever Security Tokens Awards, hosted by The Fintech Times

SAN FRANCISCO, February 2019 – Jeffrey Sweeney, Chairman and CEO at US Capital Global, attended London’s ‘Security Tokens Realised’ (“STRealised”) symposium last month, where he served as Awards Sponsor for the first-ever Security Tokens Awards ceremony. The symposium was hosted by the London-based multimedia publication The Fintech Times, the world’s first and only FinTech news outlet.

The symposium took place in London’s Grand Connaught Hotel, where business leaders from the security tokens ecosystem gathered to explore the evolving world of tokenized securities. Set over two days of discussion, panels, and pitches, STRealised aimed to deliver a greater understanding of security tokens and their uses, while recognizing some of the field’s innovating leaders.

Headquartered in San Francisco, US Capital Globalprovides sophisticated debt, equity, and investment products to lower middle market companies and investors, using the latest FinTech and RegTech innovation. The firm received the “Bank, Fund, PE – Most Forward Looking” award at the event.

“The STRealised symposium and its awards ceremony was a wonderful success,” said Katia Lang, CEO at The Fintech Times. “Wethoroughly enjoyed creating a platform for the ideas, enthusiasm and insights shared between some of the brightest innovators in the field, and as the first of its kind, this was especially exciting to witness. There are some brilliant men and women revolutionizing the financial world, and it was a pleasure for Jeffrey and I to award them the recognition they deserve.”

“I’m very pleased to have attended the STRealised symposium in London,” said Mr. Sweeney. “With security tokens expected to make up 10% of global GDP, or roughly $8 trillion, by 2024, events such as these and discussions on the adoption of digital securities are essential to realizing its full potential. It was an honour to serve as Awards Sponsor in the closing awards ceremony, and I look forward to attending more events run by The Fintech Timesin the future.”
