For the Fintech Investment Fund, Lombard Odier Investment Managers are searching for new Blockchain and tokenization firms.
The Lombard Odier Group, an independent Swiss banking group that dates back to 1796, acknowledges Blockchain’s value and invests through its Investment Managers division in digital assets.
Lombard Odier Investment Managers have recently set up a Fintech-focused investment fund and have already raised $250 million in funds amid the current pandemic crisis.
Jeroen van Oerle, the fund’s global portfolio manager for fintech equities, clarified the situation and told The Block that their executives concentrate primarily on digital assets and companies participating in the tokenization process, connecting real assets to distributed ledgers.
According to Jeroen van Oerle, they can certainly see who will benefit from these kinds of new assets coming to the market in the next five years, and these are mainly businesses that we don’t know today, which are not publicly recognized but can expand reasonably rapidly once there is momentum in this area of innovation.
The Swiss investment fund mostly targets businesses with a minimum market capitalization of $500 million, but there is still a lack of publicly traded tokenization businesses, according to Oerle.
