Investors in this round include Singapore-based K3 Ventures, the venture capital firm led by Meng Xiong Kuok, grandson of Shangri-La hotelier Robert Kuok; External Asset Managers (“EAM”) such as Rockpool Capital and Venture Smart Financial Group through BlackPine also joined, as the adoption of the crypto asset class continues to see rapid growth amongst Asia’s wealthiest. An important part of Aspen Digital’s value is to help traditional wealth managers build their crypto business through access to its crypto experts and end-to-end crypto product shelf, as traditional financial service providers look to provide clients exposure to the growing new crypto asset class.

On the private investments side, Aspen Digital has already secured allocations for clients across a number of landmark transactions including two of Asia’s most high-profile crypto unicorns, Animoca Brands and Dunamu (the parent company of the biggest South Korean crypto exchange Upbit).
