区块链初创公司SETL获花旗银行股权投资

本周,总部位于英国伦敦的区块链初创公司SETL宣布获得金融巨头花旗集团的股权投资,具体金额并未对外披露。SETL公司发布的一份声明透露,本次股权投资交易能够显著增强他们的实力。截至目前,该公司已披露的融资总金额已经达到3900万美元。

除花旗集团之、外,该公司的其他投资方还包括法国农业信贷银行、Computershare、德勤以及银行服务企业S2iEM。SETL公司成立于2015年,创始人皮特·兰达尔曾是股权交易所Chi-X首席执行官,利用其开发的许可分类账区块链技术,能够促进银行双方之间的资金流转,并提升资产流动率,让各种不同类型的交易变得更加容易。该公司的客户之一是OFI资产管理公司,就在上个月,他们宣布将启动SETL开发的IZNES资金记录保存系统的试运行工作。

SETL, a blockchain-based payment and settlement provider, announced on Monday that Citi Group has taken a stake in their fintech business.

The financial services giant Citi Group joins the likes of Deloitte, Computershare, S2iEM and more recently Credit Agricole as shareholders in SETL. Last month, French bank Credit Agricole became a minority shareholder in the company. CEO of SETL, Peter Randall said of the development, “We are pleased to announce that we have extended our shareholder register with both new and existing partners and have agreed on the scope of a number of revenue-generating projects.

Citi is not new to blockchain and always seek ways to leverage the emerging distributed ledger technology. Last year, Citi and Nasdaq announced a new payment solution powered by Chain’s blockchain. Both organizations are pioneer members of the IDEO CoLab that explores emerging technologies like blockchain.

The announcement further indicated that Computershare increased their investment in the startup and their Group CEO, Stuart Irving has joined the SETL board. Speaking about Irving’s addition, SETL’s Chairman, Sir David Walker could not hide his delight noting that “he brings a wealth of experience in the financial, regulatory, IT and public company spheres” and that “his contribution to the board process will be of significant benefit to the executive team and shareholders and stakeholders alike.”

Walker remarked that it was important that at the company choose the right projects and deliver dependable products to the market. SETL’s flagship product, IZNES—a fund record-keeping system—already has over 20 major European fund managers and is poised to become the largest global blockchain as it continues to attract managers.

SETL was founded in 2015 to facilitate the transfer of money and assets using its own blockchain enabled OpenCSD platform.
