Tradeteq, a pioneering technology provider for securitization-as-a-service and bank asset distribution, has successfully raised $12.5 million in its A Plus funding round. The round was led by US-based MS&AD Ventures and saw significant investment from venture capital firm Interlock Partners, with industry veteran Victor Ganzi also contributing. This funding will play a crucial role as Tradeteq expands into the US market, the world’s largest private credit and securitization arena.
Tradeteq’s mission is to connect trade finance and private credit originators with institutional investors, addressing the global lending shortfall. The platform has enabled banks to securitize and distribute their trade finance assets to investors and recently extended its primary issuance platform to include private credit, facilitating interactions between leading global banks, alternative lenders, and institutional investors like pension funds and insurance companies.
Jon Soberg, Managing Partner at MS&AD Ventures, and Harry Hawks, Venture Partner at Interlock, will join the board as observers.
Christoph Gugelmann, Tradeteq CEO, expressed his delight at the backing of new partners and the strategic alliance with MS&AD Ventures and Interlock Partners. He emphasized the importance of this support as Tradeteq establishes its US operations.
Jon Soberg of MS&AD Ventures praised Tradeteq’s potential for growth and scalability and expressed excitement about collaborating closely as the company expands into the US market and beyond.
This funding round also saw participation from existing investors LGGP and Niya Partners, reflecting their continued support for Tradeteq’s mission.
Tradeteq’s innovative approach to securitization and asset distribution is poised to make a significant impact as it enters the dynamic US market, helping bridge the lending gap and connecting financial institutions with investors seamlessly.
