IZNES announces first fundraising
February 22, 2018

LIZNES, the international blockchain record-keeping platform for EU mutual funds powered by SETL's blockchain technology, has this morning announced its first fundraising.

OFI AM and SETL, the institutional payment and settlement infrastructure provider which uses blockchain technology, have been joined as shareholders of IZNES by five asset management companies, who have participated in the development of the platform for several months: Arkéa IS, Groupama AM, La Banque Postale AM, La Financière de l'Échiquier and Lyxor AM.

This strategic collaboration  follows just weeks after IZNES, the mutual funds blockchain issuance platform, went live and processed its first real transactions. The collaboration gives IZNES the necessary means and support for the deployment and production phase expected for 2018 in France and in Luxembourg.

For this phase, 13 new asset management companies officially join the project as contributors to the development of the platform, thus demonstrating the strong support of the asset management community to IZNES : Allianz GI, Amundi, Aviva Investors, BDL Capital Management, BNP Paribas AM, Candriam Investors Group, La Française, Lazard Frères Gestion, Mandarine Gestion, Natixis AM, Pléiade AM, SMA Groupe and Sycomore AM.
