About Himalaya Capital Exchange: Global Tour to unleash blockchain led paradigm shift in Capital Markets


Arifa Khan, CEO will present Himalaya - Capital Exchange

Arifa Khan, a former investment banker with Credit Suisse and UBS has embarked on her global Himalaya Capital Exchange tour to disrupt traditional Investment Banking industry with Blockchain and Smart Contract led Fintech Innovation. She is Ethereum India Partner.

Through the Himalaya Capital Exchange platform, she intends to bring transparency to the global capital market ecosystem which would empower both asset issuers and investors to discover and conduct transactions in a transparent manner. This would shake up the $66 trillion-dollar global securities market backed by cozy investment bankers.

The innovation would usher a beginning of a new era with no role for intermediaries. The platform would knit a core blockchain led infrastructure that would open immense possibilities - Digital IPO, Start-ups raising Venture and Private Equity capital, Corporate Bond Issuance, M&A’s and Cross-Border Transactions, Governments issuing Treasuries and other infrastructure bonds – that without paying a hefty fee to Investment Banks!

The technology driven platform would open a channel for the best minds in Asset Management and Investment Banking industry to design innovative applications adding value to both investors and capital seekers. This would be a Google, Apple moment for the Financial Services Industry! And an Uber moment for Investment Banking! Arifa had a successful tour Sep-Dec 2017 : Dubai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Kiev, Brussels, Paris , Seoul, Mexico, Davos, Zug, Chennai, Macau, Kualalumpur. She has been meeting Bitcoin and Blockchain community, potential investors, market participants, strategic partners and potential team members in order to build a user community for Capital Coin.

Investment Banks and Trading Exchanges across the world are demonstrating their interest in these technologies with super disruptive potential.

Global efficient capital flows between countries

Potential App Market Place for Asset Management Industry and intermediaries to build on our Core Platform

Decentralisation of Access to Capital!

Decentralisation of Innovation!

“As a professional provider of investment advisory services, including, for example, management of liquidity funds on stock exchanges, we are very interested in lowering the transaction fees as those direct expenses paid to different counterparties like DMA brokers, custody etc lowers the returns for our customers. So we are very interested in such an exchange that would give us the reasonable safety within the regulated scope and good fees to more bigger returns.” - Alexander Zitsev, Founder, Raison AI

"As if online book building/ trading was not enough, the Crypto Economy, with a much more vast array of possibilities is likely to overhaul the way in which primary and secondary capital markets operate. To pick just a couple of aspects that are 'ripe targets’ - the current, less than optimum allocation and settlement protocols are suddenly looking almost archaic, highly inefficient and often described as bordering on being unfair."- Maneesh Malhotra, Capital Coin ICO Adviser, Senior Debt Capital Market Specialist, having worked with HSBC for almost 2 decades in India and South East Asia, opened new currency and geographical markets for a vast array of capital raising entities, while maintaining a deep interaction with regulatory bodies in different jurisdictions. He now works at a boutique Corporate Finance Advisory outfit in Singapore, covering Asia Pacific region.

DGCAMP serves as a substitute to the current manually-intensive, time-bound and costly processes involved in the issuance of real world securities for corporates, governments, and non-profits.
