ESTABLISHMENT OF A DEDICATED CORPORATE VENTURE CAPITAL UNIT

Amsterdam, The Netherlands – Flow Traders NV (Euronext: FLOW) announces the creation of Flow Traders Capital, a dedicated corporate venture capital unit, with an initial commitment of 50 million to actively invest in the development of financial markets infrastructure and the digital asset space.

Flow Traders Capital’s primary goal is to invest in innovative companies that accelerate growth, create greater transparency in financial markets, and enable scalability in the financial ecosystem. Flow Traders Capital will make direct investments, across all geographies, with a focus on three key themes: platform, data and connectivity.

To support portfolio investments, Flow Traders Capital will offer a combination of funding and a dedicated team with expertise in product design, product development, capital market and go-to-market strategies as well as trading insights . Portfolio investments will also be able to access Flow Traders’ network of partners and resources, as well as leverage expertise within Flow Traders Capital’s existing portfolio community.

In addition to the potential to generate returns on investment, by deploying this unique set of capabilities, Flow Traders will expand its involvement in emerging technologies, identify market trends, and explore new business opportunities that create long-term strategic value.

Flow Traders’ current investment portfolio already includes leading digital asset firms such as Elwood, Tonic, bloXroute, Ondo, AllianceDAO and D2X. Additionally, ongoing strategic investments in MEMX, RFQ-Hub, LedgerEdge, ShapeQ, and the Pyth Network will also be managed as part of the Flow Traders Capital portfolio going forward.

Dennis Dijkstra, CEO of Flow Traders commented: “The creation of Flow Traders Capital is a natural and logical next step for Flow Traders given our core capabilities as well as our leadership position in global financial markets. By investing both the financial capital and the intellectual capabilities of Flow Traders, it provides us with a unique platform to gain valuable exposure to emerging ecosystems, innovative technologies and to create synergies with our existing businesses. We have already seen a positive financial return on one of our initial investments in ErisX, which is further evidence of the value Flow Traders brings to companies shaping future financial markets.
