(Blog) Featured Issuer - DTGO Corporation
At InvestaX, we try to partner with businesses who share the same vision as ours that asset tokenization can not only create liquidity for illiquid asset classes (e.g. real estate, art, commodity, etc.), but can also make private markets more efficient and accessible.
DTGO Corporation (DTGO) is one of the established Thai conglomerates and has been at the forefront of adopting the new technologies when it comes to delivering top of quality services and products to its clients.
Founded in 1993, under leadership of Mrs. Thippaporn Ahriyavraromp (Chearavanont), DTGO has not only been active across several commercial sectors including property development, trading, technology, investment but also runs various non profit initiatives in education, healthcare and environment.
DTGO Prosperous (DTP) is a subsidiary of DTGO and is tasked to diversify DTGO into recurring income investment such as hotel, hospitality and securities. DTP portfolio covers all key non residential property and is their key business involves investment and asset management.
InvestaX and DTGO have partnered together to leverage asset tokenization to help DTGO grow their capital intensive business and raise funds for their existing projects in Thailand and UK. We are impressed by their vision on exploring new channels including a digital security offering to raise capital for their business with special focus on investor protections in their mind. DTP has chosen InvestaX for their first asset tokenization project ever and we are working together with DTP on deal structuring and market feasibility for this project.

“One significant piece of information from a launch of new projects in the first half of 2021, reveals that Magnolia Quality Development Corporation Limited (MQDC) has launched 6 projects with 1,742 units which make only 7% from the overall newly launched units. However, it is worth 45,326 million Baht or around 32% of the market value, which means one-third of the market value.”
