We’re back with another round of top 5 VC deals for the week in the digital wealth sector.
As with last week, we have seen a slight slowdown in the mega-deals for the prior week in digital wealth deals. Again, we suspect this is due to the Passover and Easter holidays coupled with the seemingly endless rolling rounds of Spring breaks the country (and world) over. However, our top deal still came in at $300M USD – nothing to sneeze at. Insurtech, blockchain and payments led the VC sector this past week.
Of the five top deals, we found Capitolis to be the most interesting firm of the bunch this past week. Their website claims the firm offers “advanced workflow technology and proprietary algorithms to analyze and execute portfolio optimization with counterparties”, enabling institutions to eliminate, move and create new market positions that will optimize a firm’s balance sheet.
