Funding roundup: SG’s KILDE raises US$350K, East Ventures backs Indonesia’s Riliv


KILDE nets US$350K to introduce new alternative investment products

KILDE, an investment platform regulated by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), has closed a US$350,000 bridge round.

The financing was joined by serial angel investors, including Murat Abdrakhmanov, Adil Nurgozhin (Co-Founder of UMAY Angels Network), and Olzhas Zhiyenkulov (Founder of Tesla Capital and CEO of Paladigm Capital).

KILDE will use the proceeds to pursue the strategy of becoming a private tech-enabled supermarket for alternative investments — any investments outside of traditional asset classes such as stocks, bonds, or cash.

KILDE will also focus on introducing new investment products that provide hands-off regular income to customers in Southeast Asia and beyond.

Credit funds, family offices, and high net-worth individuals often use KILDE to discover and invest in high-yield income-generating assets, including private equity, venture capital, hedge funds, private debt, real estate, infrastructure or natural resources. 

Certain alternative assets better target environmental and sustainability goals by enabling access to credit and supporting specific green and socially inclusive projects.

KILDE claims to have recorded a rapid 10x growth in the last quarter of 2021.
