The American Trade System (ATS) - Innovation in Finance
Ezio Valentini, Principal of the Hawk Group, secured an agreement to establish a cloud-based sales center to market the financial services of WIR to a select group of Swiss companies. The sales operation is on-going today.
Switzerland’s WIR Trade System (WIR) is the prototype for the American Trade System (ATS). WIR issues and manages a private trade currency, the WIR Franc, used by members of the System to conduct business with each other, resulting in high profits.
