Crypto financial services firm Amber Group has raised $100 million in a Series B round led by Chinese investment firm China Renaissance. The firm scored a pre-money valuation of $1 billion, Amber said Sunday. 

  • With operations in Hong Kong, Taipei, Seoul and Vancouver, Amber Group said it plans to use the funding to expand its global operations.
  • The firm offers algorithmic trading, high-frequency trading and over-the-counter trading to a deep roster of 500 institutional clients, the firm said in April.
  • At the time, Amber boasted $1 billion in assets under management, though crypto prices have dipped since then.
  • “We’ve had record months over the past quarter across both client flow and on-exchange market-making volumes,” Amber Group CEO Michael Wu said in a press release. “Our cumulative trading volumes have doubled from $250 billion since the beginning of the year to over $500 billion.”
  • Participants in the Series B include Tiger Brokers, Tiger Global Management, Arena Holdings, Tru Arrow Partners, Sky9 Capital, DCM Ventures and Gobi Partners.
  • Existing investors Pantera Capital, Coinbase Ventures and Blockchain.com also joined in.
  • Amber Group raised a $28 million Series A in early 2020.
