Trading and investment apps have been some of the success stories of the last year and a half, and German investment platform Moonfare is another to have been reaping the rewards of the trading boom.

Just eight months after hitting €500m assets under management—something which took it three years to achieve—Moonfare has doubled the amount on its books, smashing through the €1bn AUM milestone.

Back in February 2020, before the pandemic was in full swing, Moonfare hit €250m AUM, putting it squarely among the top five German wealth management platforms.

“Today’s milestone not only proves that there is strong demand for private markets investment by private individuals but also demonstrates the size of the opportunity ahead,” Moonfare’s founder and CEO Dr. Steffen Pauls, said. 

“Our digital platform is built for scale. As we grow in size, the value we create for investors increases. We will continue to select only the very best investments for our platform and focus on the user experience.” 

Unlike other wealth management platforms, Moonfare is aimed at catering for high net worth individuals who don’t have access to a private asset manager themselves.

To join Moonfare’s other 1,800 clients it takes just 15 minutes to complete the registration process and a mere €50,000 minimum deposit.

Moonfare offers users the chance to invest in 39 private markets from top funds worldwide, with an emphasis on private equity buyouts, US tech funds and other asset categories such as infrastructure. 

Funds listed on the platform include those from EQT Partners AB, Cinven, KKR and The Carlyle Group.
