said Heng Soon Pang, the venture building head at SGInnovate.

We are glad to partner with the DEXTF seed funding round. The partnership will help in scaling DEXTF’s platform globally,”
The Latest Era in FX and Fintech launched at the London Summit 2019.

Investors will also enjoy the delegation of investment decision services with no need for transferring ownership of the assets.
With those services leveraging the blockchain technology, demand for Decentralized Traded Funds since the funding round was oversubscribed.

“We are in the process of building an asset management paradigm that will aid traditional asset managers to invest in new asset classes and reduce costs. The management paradigm will also significantly democratize the allocation of resources and lower entry barriers, enabling a new generation of digital managers to thrive.”
“With massive ETFs and passive investments, the traditional asset management industry has experienced significant change. Diversion into low-interest rates environments, search for yields, and the high cost of Legacy Infrastructure that has multiple Intermediary Layers has also contributed to the change,”
said Mario Aquino, the President, and Co-founder at Decentralized Traded Funds.
