Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Fintech company C8 Technologies founded by Swedish brothers Mattias and Magnus Eriksson has raised $7 million in a Series A round to capitalize on the increasing popularity of so-called direct indexing. C8 Technologies offers institutional and professional investors a global platform for direct indexing, allowing investors to customize existing indices to create bespoke portfolios by purchasing the underlying individual securities instead of using an exchange-traded fund or mutual fund.

The firm’s first round of financing was led by London-based Ventura Capital, with other investors including Alphemy Capital, Bredum, North-East Group and Pinorena Capital. “We are pleased to receive support from such highly respected investors, two of whom are Nordic, Danish North-East Group and Swedish Bredum,” says Mattias Eriksson (pictured), founder and CEO of C8 Technologies. “Their support makes it possible to launch our platform in new markets so that more managers and investors can access our cost-effective tools.”
