Tradeteq raises $12.5 million

Fintech startup Tradeteq, which powers a marketplace for private debt and real assets, announced a $12.5 million A Plus funding round led by MS&AD Ventures, with participation from Interlock Partners.

Launched in 2018, the UK-based startup provides a platform for banks to securitize and distribute their trade finance assets to investors. Earlier this year, Tradeteq extended its primary issuance platform to cover private credit, making it easier for banks and alternative lenders to connect, interact and transact with institutional investors, such as pension funds and insurance companies.

Tradeteq is planning to enter the US market.

“Tradeteq is an incredibly exciting business with significant potential to grow and scale. We believe in Tradeteq’s vision and mission and look forward to collaborating closely as they expand into the US market and beyond.” – Jon Soberg, MS&AD Ventures.
