Are banks digging their own grave?
€21,3 billion is the size of the avenue that banks are opening up to Fintech entrepreneurs.
In 2018, global fintech investment doubled to €43 B. With traditional banks and their very opaque “risk department” playing dumb, fintech startups have jolly days afoot.
VC-A and Fiduscorp are launching a regulated fundraising platform
The platform will be structured as a SICAV beneath which, will hang Professional Investment Funds (PIF) and/or Alternative Investment Funds (AIF), depending on the size of the fund. The SICAV and the underlying funds will be regulated by the Malta Financial Services Authority (MFSA).
We are designing the platform to enable fundraising through the issuance of Security Tokens.
The Funds will be managed by Mr Mario Buttigieg and Mr Christophe Schwoertzig.
