Solowin Announces Strategic Partnership with MaiCapital to Expand Virtual Asset
Allocation Opportunities

 

HONG KONG, May 28, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)—SOLOWIN HOLDINGS (Nasdaq: SWIN) (“Solowin” or “the Company”), a securities brokerage company that offers comprehensive financial services primarily to Chinese investors globally, today announced a strategic partnership with MaiCapital Limited (“MaiCapital”), a leading virtual assets investment manager in Hong Kong, to expand virtual asset allocation opportunities.

 

Under the terms of the strategic partnership, Solowin agreed to acquire 199,210 ordinary shares representing a 2.47% equity stake in BA Fintech Lab, an exempted company incorporated under the laws of Cayman Islands that conducts business through its wholly owned subsidiary MaiCapital.

 

Solomon JFZ (Asia) Holdings Limited (“Solomon”), Solowin’s operating subsidiary, and MaiCapital agree to combine their considerable resources and licenses to maximize business synergies and capitalize on opportunities created by growing investor demand for virtual assets. MaiCapital is licensed by the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong (“SFC”) to manage funds that may comprise up to 100% virtual assets which directly complements Solomon’s licensing for the trading of virtual assets.

 

Mr. Thomas Tam, Chief Executive Officer of Solowin, said: “This strategic collaboration comes at an especially opportune time for the popularization of virtual assets in Hong Kong. Following SFC approval of the first spot virtual asset ETFs, Solomon was selected as one of the three participating dealers for China AMC (HK) & Harvest Global’s ETFs and strengthened its partnership with OSL Digital Securities to facilitate the ETF’s in-kind subscription and redemption processes. MaiCapital is a pioneer in applying traditional institutional investment practices to the virtual asset sector which aligns with our vision. Together, we will strengthen asset management services for virtual assets to provide investors with expanded options to diversify their virtual asset allocation.”

 

About MaiCapital Limited

 

MaiCapital is a leading virtual assets investment manager in Hong Kong and is a pioneer in applying institutional investment practices to the innovative cryptocurrency space. The firm aims to offer crypto-inclined investors with legitimate and compliant products that provide positive returns with maximum protection.

 

MaiCapital has received SFC’s approval to manage funds that may comprise up to 100% virtual assets. The firm is subject to the SFC’s “Proforma Terms and Conditions for Licensed Corporations which Manage Portfolios that Invest in Virtual Assets”.

 

In early 2019, the firm launched its first crypto-themed product, the Blockchain Opportunity Fund. The multi-strategy investment approach of this Fund has garnered global recognition, with the London-based investment data company Preqin ranking its 2021 return among the Top 3 hedge funds across all of Asia.
