The First Institutional Exchange for Points-Backed Securities unlocking a trillion dollars’ worth of captive Loyalty value

Revolutionizing the loyalty economy by providing a capital market infrastructure and a brand new asset class for investors to hedge and manage risk unlocking over $1 trillion in market capitalization

A venue for new capital inflow, enhanced liquidity, risk management and price discovery available to banks, airlines and all loyalty industry participants globally

For a few of us, loyalty liability sounded like an oxymoron. However, in the wake of changes in regulatory regimes and accounting standards globally, Loyalty is quickly losing its meaning in advancing brands, financing corporations and engaging billions of consumers around the world. Therefore, we set off to reverse it, creating the infrastructure, mechanisms and the technology for turning loyalty points into a new and exciting asset class - in tune with the needs of sponsors, partners, investors and consumers.

It is how ACE was born.

OUR MISSION


To be the ultimate game changer for loyalty operators, sponsors and investors by creating sustainable loyalty economics, optimizing loyalty point yield, managing balance sheet liability and providing access to capital by monetizing loyalty currency into a new class of financial instruments. ACE will revolutionize the loyalty economy unlocking over $1 trillion in market cap by creating specialist trading venue for loyalty points backed securities, channeling liquidity, enhancing and attracting new investment to the loyalty sector.

WHAT WE DO


We facilitate issuance and trading of points between loyalty industry participants, partners and investors via point backed financial securities. We enable members to use the ACE Primary market to list loyalty currency instruments/contracts and/or package tranches of points at different values for sale to approved parties including new investors who up until now could not buy into this new asset class. Contracts can also be traded on the ACE secondary market where prices are driven by intrinsic valuation and market demand.
