Recently, a new class of models beyond the standard model was proposed wherein the baryonic and leptonic currents separately source U(1) gauge fields. In this talk, I describe the two most minimal viable models known. In these models, the requirement of anomaly cancellation conditions automatically imply the existence of a stable Fermionic dark matter candidate. In addition to dark matter phenomenology, prospects of baryogenesis, and collider signatures in these models will be discussed. This talk will draw material from P. Fileviez Perez, HP. Phys.Lett.B (2014) 232 P. Fileviez Perez, S. Ohmer, HP. Phys.Lett.B. (2014) and focus on S. Ohmer, HP. arXiv:1506.00954 (PRD accepted)
