Stockholm, May 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
Vostok Emerging Finance (“VEF”) would like to congratulate the team at Magnetis for signing a strategic partnership agreement with GPS Investimentos (‘GPS’), a fully owned subsidiary of the Julius Baer Group. The partnership agreement was accompanied by a funding round, in which GPS invested alongside VEF, Monashees and other current shareholders.
Magnetis has made huge strides in bolstering its infrastructure and iterating on a product that really democratizes access to affordable and easy to use investment management. This partnership, from one of Brazil’s largest and most reputable wealth managers, reinforces what the team has achieved.
Julius Baer’s Brazilian presence – through the fully-owned subsidiaries GPS with BRL 31 billion in AuM and Reliance Group with BRL 20 billion in AuM – allows Magnetis to leverage invaluable expertise and scale, in the combined mission to build the best digital wealth management platform in the region.
Luciano Tavares, Magnetis’ founder and CEO, said: “Magnetis was founded based on the same core
values as GPS: providing independent, client-focused investment advisory, exempt of conflict of interest.
Magnetis has specialized in applying state-of-the-art technology to deliver high-quality investment
management to individuals. Now we join forces with GPS’ proven investment expertise to jointly create the
best digital experience for investors of all profiles.”
Alexis Koumoudos, VEF partner and Magnetis board member said: “Brazil represents one of the largest opportunities for digital wealth management, globally. VEF couldn’t be happier with the progress at Magnetis and the caliber of partners that have joined our cause to address this opportunity.”
VEF currently owns a 16.9% holding in Magnetis.
