WealthPark secures JPY 540 Million (USD 4.9 Million) in Series A Funding

We are pleased to announce that WealthPark Co., Ltd. (hereafter “WealthPark”) has raised funds totaling JPY 540M (USD 4.9MM) with the completion of third party allocations of new shares to SBI Investment Co., Ltd., Japan Post Capital Co., Ltd. and Mizuho Capital Co., Ltd.

The Challenge

With the rapid evolution and utilization of mobile technology, advanced technology services for liquid asset management (equities, bonds, etc.) which was once only an offering to institutional investors and high-net-worth clients, is now becoming accessible to individuals in a more efficient and cost-effective manner. In the illiquid asset space, real estate being most prominent, has posed to be a challenge due to the fact that property management which is key to investment decisions, must consider each asset’s uniqueness, regional characteristics along with other factors, making it highly complex.

Consequently, WealthPark is committed to providing a solution that will not only aid Property Management Companies with overcoming pain points for effective operations, but cooperate with Property Management Companies to turn the real estate market into an active trading venue by attracting existing and new real estate investors.

The Background

Real estate management, which was traditionally focused towards the Property, is also about “Wealth Management” from the investor’s perspective. Providing an environment where this can be done via mobile technology is our vision, which our Series A supporters have also assented to. With the raised funds, we strive to strengthen our operations and product development which will ultimately enable us to deliver a unique service to our clients. Additionally, we seek to expand our servicing regions, as the investment opportunities and needs of investors continue to diversify.
