NICOSIA, Cyprus, June 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The multi-licensed global broker CAPEX.com announced on Monday the closing of a new funding round, raising a total of $21 Million. This was achieved with the help of Growth Box Ventures https://growthbox.vc/ and a syndicate investment led by Moore & Moore https://www.mooreandmooreinvestments.com/.
CAPEX.com is currently operating four trading licenses, providing services across Europe, the Middle East, South Africa, Latin America, and South-East Asia. With a robust offering of over 2100 CFD trading instruments, the broker is preparing to expand the offering by including Direct Market Access instruments, DeFi and blockchain-based services.
The current funding round of CAPEX.com comes at a moment when interest in online trading and investments is at an all-time high, the company having a rapid growth last year. The new investment will support the launch of new products, fund the broker's rapid expansion by selected M&A deals in key markets and growing the teams and offices worldwide.
"Although Millennials are still the leading force behind last year's massive growth of the fintech industry, we can see that 'everyone' is now using apps to manage their finances, make payments, trade and invest, both in traditional but also in neo-finance products. 2021 is a key moment for the financial markets, and here at CAPEX.com we are fully prepared to expand our team and come up with exciting new features and products," declared Octavian Patrascu, CEO of the company that owns CAPEX.com.
