Raffles Family Office (Raffles FO) has made a strategic investment in Singapore-based fintech firm Lightnet Group.
The investment will be used by Lightnet to carry out its existing operations as well as accelerate the development of its products and tools.
Under the agreement, Lightnet will receive a strategic stake in Revo, which is Raffles FO’s digital asset wealth management platform.
Lightnet will enhance its payment network to include institutional funds transfer, which forms a key part of Raffles FO’s products to help ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) families in the region via Revo.
Through the deal, Lightnet seeks to improve the payments and remittance across various categories, including unbanked and underbanked spaces as well as wealthy individuals and family offices.
Raffles FO group CEO Chi-man Kwan said: “At Raffles Family Office, we are committed to driving the development of a wealth management platform built for the digital future and synergies with like-minded innovators in a collaborative ecosystem to enable and optimise digitalisation in finance.
