Jun 02, 2021
- Oversubscribed seed financing round led by German digital finance investor DEWB and existing as well as other renowned industry investors
- DEWB-CEO Bertram Köhler joins founders Andreas Bezner and Konstantin Heiermann on the Board of Directors
- Due to high levels of interest from institutional venture capital investors, a substantial Series A financing round is being prepared
ZUG AND JENA, 2 June 2021: Stableton Financial AG (“Stableton”), the leading European Fintech platform for Alternative Investments, announces the successful closing of its seed funding round. The financing round was led by digital finance investor DEWB, a German private equity firm with an investment focus on asset management and companies whose technologies and business models are significantly shaping the digitalisation of the finance industry.
In addition to DEWB, existing shareholders and other renowned investors and entrepreneurs from the venture capital and hedge fund industry, family offices, and strategic management consultants, among others, participated in this significantly oversubscribed financing round. The parties agreed not to disclose the size and terms of the transaction. In the course of the transaction, Bertram Köhler, CEO of DEWB, joined the board of directors of Stableton Financial AG on 16 April 2021, alongside the existing members Andreas Bezner and Konstantin Heiermann.
The capital raised will be invested in the technical development of Stableton’s digital marketplace platform for Alternative Investments and the expansion of the team. Stableton is already one of the most significant Swiss allocators in the area of pre-IPO investments. With offices in Zug and Zurich and more than 130 qualified investors, the fast-growing company already counts over 30 Swiss financial intermediaries and thus around 2% of the market among its clients. With an estimated annual revenue potential of CHF 30 billion, the Swiss market for Alternative Investments ranks among the most attractive target markets worldwide.
Andreas Bezner, co-founder, and CEO of Stableton, said: “We are delighted to welcome DEWB, a long-term industry specialist, on board as an investor. In addition to DEWB, an exceptional and high-calibre group of industry insiders has once again participated in this financing round. This reinforces our belief that we are on the right track regarding our business model and the way we are implementing it. Our traction and interest in the Swiss market have surprised even us as professional optimists over the last year.
I am particularly pleased with the strong interest from institutional venture capital investors, which has spurred us to prepare a substantial Series A financing round for even faster expansion in the second half of the year.”
“Stableton’s rapid growth, and the traction achieved in a short time in the Swiss market with a still relatively small team, indicates huge potential, both in terms of the overall European market and the company’s ability to capitalise on it with its digital platform. I am excited to provide strategic guidance on Stableton’s further development as a board member alongside founders Andreas Bezner and Konstantin Heiermann”, added Bertram Köhler, CEO of DEWB and new board member of Stableton.

The Future of Banking: For Revolut, The Term “Neo-Bank” Is Something Of an Understatement
For Revolut, the term “neo-bank” is something of an understatement. Revolut’s “super app” offers a spectrum of banking services, including bank accounts, debit cards, free currency exchange, peer-to-peer transfers, savings tools, budgeting tools and wealth management products with access to cryptocurrency and stock trading. The breadth of Revolut’s products and services sets it apart from both digital and traditional banking competitors. The Financial Brand website writes, “Revolut is a product juggernaut. By the time you finish reading this article, it’s conceivable the company may have launched another service.” Although Revolut competes with other fintechs in several product areas, it is one of very few delivering a one-stop shop.
