Onramp Invest Raises $7 Million to Complete Series A Funding
Onramp Invest, the premier, turnkey digital asset platform for financial professionals, has completed its Series A funding round with a total of $7 million raised from lead investors JAM FINTOP and EJF Capital LLC (“EJF”), which participated through its affiliate, the EJF Silvergate Ventures Fund.
Since its inception, Onramp Invest’s mission has been to break down barriers to digital asset investment and help financial professionals smartly and safely provide crypto investment services to their clients. In turn, the financial services community has been paramount in informing Onramp’s development and feature roadmap. Onramp Invest offers an unmatched suite of tools and services on an easy-to-use, fully-integrated platform where financial professionals can:
- Onboard clients in under five minutes and easily link and view their portfolios on integrated dashboards
- Open discretionary accounts across multiple custodians
- Invest in and track a wide variety of digital assets
- Access an expanding library of model portfolios, indices, and automated services in the Onramp Model Marketplace
- Learn from Onramp Academy, an evolving library of content, thought leadership, and interactive tools to build deep expertise in digital assets
- Integrate client data with a number of widely used tools and platforms
Onramp Academy, previously a subscription service, will now be available free to all financial professionals. And Onramp Invest will soon add the exclusive option to build and share custom models within the Onramp Model Marketplace.
“With this funding, we will be able to accelerate our innovation velocity and expand marketing and communications to financial professionals so they can take full advantage of Onramp Invest today. Custom models and separately managed accounts will be great first steps in that innovation,” stated Eric Ervin, CEO of Onramp Invest. “In addition to their investment, JAM FINTOP and EJF provide significant operating experience and industry guidance to help ensure Onramp Invest is ideally positioned for the next phase of digital asset growth.”
