Stableton closes seed round to enhance its alternative investment platform

Stableton Financial AG closed its seed funding round led by digital finance investor DEWB, a German private equity firm. The capital raised will be invested in the technical development of Stableton's digital marketplace platform for Alternative Investments and the expansion of the team.

Until today, alternative investments remain excessively intransparent, expensive and time-consuming for the individual investor. Stableton wants to change this with its alternative investment Fintech platform by becoming the global leading market network for qualified and institutional investors seeking exposure to liquid alternatives, private equity, including venture capital, private debt, and real assets.

A first version of the platform was launched in 2019. Stableton is already one of the most significant Swiss allocators in the area of pre-IPO investments. With offices in Zug and Zurich and more than 130 qualified investors, the fast-growing company already counts over 30 Swiss financial intermediaries and thus around 2% of the market among its clients. With an estimated annual revenue potential of CHF 30 billion, the Swiss market for Alternative Investments ranks among the most attractive target markets worldwide.

The company has now closed an oversubscribed seed round led by DEWB. In addition to DEWB, existing shareholders and other renowned investors and entrepreneurs from the venture capital and hedge fund industry, family offices and strategic management consultants, among others, participated in this significantly oversubscribed financing round. The parties agreed not to disclose the size and terms of the transaction. In the course of the transaction, Bertram Köhler, CEO of DEWB, joined the board of directors of Stableton Financial AG on 16 April 2021, alongside the existing members Andreas Bezner and Konstantin Heiermann.
