No, there is no transaction obligation.

 

Registration on the platform is free for issuers and investors. 

 

In terms of content, the issuance process does not differ much from the process at traditional banks. But Valyo reduces the amount of time between allocation and settlement to a few days because the preliminary prospectus is created before the book is opened.

 

Transaction charges for issuers are generally much lower than the commissions charged by banks.

 

Valyo places great value on transparency. However, we do also take account of our clients’ needs. During the bookbuilding stage, issuers see the bids submitted by individual investors, including their names. Investors can see the bids in aggregate, but they cannot see other investors’ names.

 

Yes, as long as they meet the conditions for registration and provide the necessary documents. Learn more about the requirements here.

Issuers can enter their transactions on their own at any time. After the transaction data have been entered, the book can be opened. Registered users can follow the development of the book on the platform in real time. Issuers can complete much of the due diligence and transaction contract process digitally via the platform. “Delivery upon payment” and listing processes are carried out via Raiffeisen Switzerland, which also serves as the paying agent.  

 

Valyo is generally able to carry out the onboarding process within a few days.  

 

  1. Issuers and investors fill out the registration form on the platform.
  2. Valyo conducts an initial review of the applicant.
  3. Login details for the onboarding area are sent to the applicant, who is then able to download all of the necessary documents. 
  4. As soon as all the compulsory documents have been returned and verified by Valyo, we inform the applicant whether registration was successful.
  5. Upon request, we can arrange a personal introduction to the platform and the available features.

 

Valyo places great emphasis on data security and protection of the platform. More detailed information is provided in our privacy policy.
