Led by Owl Capital, the funding round was joined by fund managed by Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners, as well as existing investors Allianz Life Ventures and William Blair.

Founded in 2015, Halo enables financial advisors to add structured notes, annuities, and buffered ETFs to client portfolios.

Previously, these investments were only available to high-net-worth (HNW) individuals.

Halo will leverage the fresh capital to scale up its effort to expand the access to protective investment options.

The firm also plans to invest in new markets, foray into more distribution channels, and expand into new asset classes.

Halo co-founder and president Jason Barsema said: “Halo enables investors to target and achieve a level of certainty in their portfolios with the added benefit of downside investment protection.

“With the support of our latest funders, we are expanding our global footprint and broadening access to all defined-outcome products. We have a radical new vision to change the way the world invests and have very ambitious goals to support everyday investors and their financial advisors.”

Halo is set to open an office at Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM) as part of Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners’ investment in the firm.

The new location is expected to help the Chicago-headquartered firm to expand its international footprint in the protective investing landscape.

Abu Dhabi Catalyst Partners CEO James Munce said: “We are proud to partner with Halo and support its international growth from ADGM, which has attracted a strong and growing base of global capital markets companies.

“Our investment in Halo is another example of our commitment to partnering with businesses that will fundamentally disrupt their respective industries and strive to create more efficient markets.”

This week, Korean robo-adviser Fount raised a $33.4m in a Series C round to support the further development of its machine learning-based platform.
