Digital Assets Investor Arca Closes Series A
Los Angeles-based digital asset management firm Arca has closed a $10mn Series A round, led by RRE Ventures with additional participation from Alex Tisch, President of Loews Hotels & Co. and a coalition of financiers led by Littlebanc Advisors. James Robinson, Founder and General Partner of RRE will join Arca’s advisory board.
“We believe that the introduction of digital assets as a capital formation and growth bootstrapping mechanism is the greatest innovation in financial services since the Dutch East India company issued shares of its business to the public in the 1600s,” said Arca CEO Rayne Steinberg. “Arca is helping guide investors through this massive transformation by providing what we see as the right products, at the right time, to the right investors.”
“We have worked with members of the Arca senior team for the past two decades as they revolutionized asset management, giving us high confidence they can do it again with future evolutionary products,” said James Robinson, Founder and CEO of RRE Ventures.
Arca will use the capital to continue to prioritize creating the necessary infrastructure and navigate the legal and regulatory footing needed by the industry to offer better asset management products.
“We seek to create bespoke opportunities for investors, and the digital asset revolution may be one of the best examples of that in the current and future market environment,” said Michael Margolies, CEO of Littlebanc Advisors. “We believe Arca’s experienced team will continue helping sophisticated investors enter and navigate this new financial landscape with confidence.”
“Our investment partners have a history of identifying transformative change. They recognize how to identify companies like Arca, how to capitalize businesses to address this evolution, and how to create and innovative products. We are excited to have these partners by our side,” Steinberg added.
