Fasset is a platform for the ethical financing of sustainable infrastructure. Our marketplace is a return to the original goal of finance; to create real assets—such as bridges and solar parks—for the real economy that enhance people’s lives.
We aim to be a globally recognized leader in spurring job growth in developing nations, fighting climate change, and contributing to the fulfillment of the SDGs.
We launched Fasset in order to provide a marketplace for ethical investors to support sustainable infrastructure. Inspired by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), our objective is to offer secure real economy linked investments that bring healthy returns while furthering the world’s sustainability ambitions.
In addition, we see that the current inefficient infrastructure finance system cannot meet demand due to problems with market access, liquidity, and prohibitively high costs and fees. Our platform addresses these challenges by creating a secure, frictionless, transparent, and more affordable gateway to raise capital from a broader pool of global investors.
The Fasset marketplace platform leverages Ethereum blockchain technology to allow infrastructure owners to securely offer asset-backed investments to institutional investors, including sovereign wealth funds, government-linked investment funds, infrastructure funds, private equity funds, real estate funds, and banks.
Fasset consists of an international team with backgrounds in banking, ethical finance, governmental investing, fintech, distributed ledger technology, AI, software development, sustainable infrastructure, and the regulatory landscape.
Fasset is overseen and advised by our board in the areas of overall governance, performance, and risk management.
