We are pleased to announce that Anchorage Digital has raised a $350 million Series D funding round. Led by global investment firm KKR, this round of financing values Anchorage at over $3 billion. Participants include Goldman Sachs, Alameda Research, Andreessen Horowitz, Apollo credit funds, Blockchain Capital, Delta Blockchain Fund, Elad Gil, GIC, GoldenTree Asset Management, Innovius Capital, Kraken, Lux Capital, Senator Investment Group, Standard Investments, Thoma Bravo, and Wellington Management.
This new capital will accelerate our efforts to integrate digital assets into the global economy.
Our focus at Anchorage has always been to make it safe and accessible for institutions to participate in the rapidly evolving digital asset space. We will use this new infusion of capital to:
Enhance our ability to provide custom crypto infrastructure solutions for our global financial services and fintech clients.
Accelerate Anchorage’s ability to enable institutions to navigate the latest trends in crypto and its quickly evolving financial landscape.
Increase the size of our team across all lines of business to continue to expand our product offerings, support our current clients, and grow our client base.
We will benefit greatly from the strategic partnership and global reach of KKR as our lead investor. KKR is making its investment in Anchorage through its Next Generation Technology Growth Fund II and we are pleased to be the firm’s first direct equity investment in a digital asset company.
“As a pioneer in enabling institutional investors to access digital assets, Anchorage has built a best in class, institutional grade digital asset platform that combines the best practices of both modern security and usability. We are thrilled to lead this Series D round and work with Diogo, Nathan and their talented team as they continue to support the institutional adoption of digital assets through their differentiated, regulated and integrated suite of solutions.”
—Ben Pederson, Senior Leader on KKR’s Technology Growth Equity Team
When we first started Anchorage, we solved for custody with the most secure and safest platform for institutions on the market. Today, our suite of offerings has expanded to include prime brokerage services and custom API integrations for institutions interested in digital assets.
We are at an inflection point as more and more institutions look to add crypto services into their offerings. This funding positions Anchorage to meet the unprecedented institutional demand for this rapidly changing market.
“We are certain Anchorage will be a crucial part of the digital asset infrastructure and we are excited to be an investor.”
—Oli Harris, Head of North America Digital Assets, Goldman Sachs
“Anchorage Digital has emerged as a leader in digital asset infrastructure through its innovative technology and institutional approach to regulatory compliance. We believe Anchorage can play a pivotal role in reshaping modern finance as digital asset adoption grows. We look forward to supporting their growth through this fund investment and to exploring new ways to integrate with their platform solutions.”
—Rob Bittencourt, Partner, Apollo
