Zurich, Frankfurt and Jena, July 12, 2022 Stableton Financial AG (“Stableton”), the leading European fintech platform for alternative investments, successfully completed the CHF 15 million Series A funding round. The funding round was led by TX Ventures, arm of Swiss VC media company TX Group. In addition, there has been significant investment from German fintech investor C3 EOS VC Venture Fund and existing investor DEWB, a German private equity firm focused on investing in digital finance that also spearheaded the Stableton seed round. Attendees also included family offices, key employees and partners of well-known private equity and venture capital firms, as well as successful entrepreneurs and individuals in the technology and wealth management industries.
New financing enables Stableton to pursue its vision of ensuring prosperity and positive change through alternative investments. In particular, Stableton will use the funds to expand its operations in Switzerland, expand its technology offering and available investment structures, and expand internationally in the coming months.
Andreas Bezner, co-founder and managing partner of Stableton: “We are glad that such experienced and top-class investors as TX Ventures, C3 and DEWB entrust us with their capital. Despite short-term market volatility, we see the convergence of two major long-term macroeconomic trends: the democratization of investment in private markets and the ever-increasing value creation in this segment as breakthrough technologies meet huge capital investment needs.
Konstantin Heiermann, co-founder and managing partner of Stableton: “We are in an enviable position that we have increased our managed assets 7.5 times from last year’s sowing round. With over 2,500 market users and nearly 500 product investors in Switzerland alone, Stableton has become the dominant player in the market and counts over 2% of Swiss financial intermediaries among its clients. Financing allows us to double our strategic investments in operations, structures and regulation and compliance, while scaling and replicating our marketing and sales efforts internationally. ”
“We are very pleased to work with Stableton and support the company on its path to further growth. Stableton has shown impressive growth and is well positioned to continue growing in a very attractive market. We are proud to be able to contribute to the democratization of investment in private markets and we believe that the excellent Stableton team will be successful – the future is bright for Stableton », adds Krzysztof Białkowski, Investment Director at TX Ventures.
“As a lead seed investor, DEWB got involved with Stableton early on and it was amazing to see the team grow from day one and lead to impressive growth for the company. It seems that this is just the beginning of a great success story. Highly scalable, fully digital and data-driven, Stableton’s infrastructure is at the hottest spot in an already eminent investment universe, which opens up many opportunities through its proprietary technology platform in hitherto untapped markets. We look forward to welcoming strong co-investors who will contribute much more than just an investment », adds Bertram Koehler, DEWB CEO and member of the Stableton board of directors.
“We are delighted to be able to add Stableton to the C3 VC portfolio and support the next phases of the company’s growth. With an alternative investment platform, Stableton fits in perfectly with our portfolio strategy, enabling clients to benefit from easy access to world-class, curated and unique investment opportunities alongside leading global investors thanks to low minimum amounts, banking finance products and increased liquidity ”. adds Stefan Schütze, Managing Partner at C3.
