Fasanara Capital Ltd – ein in London ansässiger Vermögensverwalter – hat Berichten zufolge eine Spendenaktion in Höhe von 350 Millionen US-Dollar abgeschlossen und will die Finanzierung nutzen, um in Cryptowährungsunternehmen und Finanztechnologie zu investieren.
The crypto crash works in Fasanara’s favor
Fasanara secured its second fund to support tech startups and companies in the digital asset industry, according to Bloomberg reporting. Specifically, it intends to allocate the $350 million to crypto exchanges and digital lending businesses.
The UK organization previously raised around US$550 million to support Europe’s tech sector. It invested a significant portion in Germany-based rental startup – Grover – and Italian buy-now pay later company – Scalapay.
Currently, Fasanara is working on his third fund as he has already amassed $100 million. Francesco Filia – Chief Executive Officer of the company – announced that unlike previous financings, this will be available to new outside investors.
He said Fasanara is attracted to the universe of digital assets and is trying to strengthen the capabilities of the companies involved. In his view, the current slump in the crypto market is favorable for the company’s strategy:
“When the market goes through a rough patch, we can do better deals.”
Fasanara Capital is an alternative wealth manager headquartered in London with offices in Milan. It offers businesses access to a range of monetary services and financing. The company has more than 150 employees and over $3.5 billion in assets under management (AUM).
Some of the recent multi-million fundraisers
Funding rounds in the crypto space are popping up fairly frequently, and as such it’s worth mentioning some of the most notable ones over the past few months.
In early April, Near Protocol completed a $350 million fundraiser led by American investment giant Tiger Capital Management. Speaking on the initiative was Amos Zhang – a partner at MetaWeb VC. He opined that Tiger Capital’s involvement in the funding is a sign that Near “could be one of those protocols that can take over the world.”
Subsequently, Germany-based soccer application – OneFootball – secured a $300 million fundraiser from investment managers including Animoca Brands. The app also formed a joint venture called OneFootball Labs, which aims to enable football clubs, federations and players to share fan tokens and digital assets based on blockchain technology.
