The current focus of the digital industry on "Asset Tokenisation" is a response to a need by investors and trades to broaden the investment pool beyond shares, bonds and funds into other forms of assets.
If satisfied, this would greatly add to the options to diversify investments. The problem is how to achieve this without losing the benefits of investor protection and the safety of client assets - two powerful regulatory objectives. These have been focused on listed equity and, to a slightly lesser extent, investment funds.
A solution is to channel the rights and privileges of alternative asset ownership into the same channels as listed equity and make use of the protective environment provided for investors through regulators.
