EU Regulated Crypto Investments
In February 2019, Kintaro Capital, a venture of the Konfidio blockchain studio, obtained formal approval of its PIF license from the MFSA. This makes it one of the first regulated crypto funds for qualifying investors under Maltese law.
Malta complies with all EU financial and regulatory laws governing investor protection and financial instruments. The license allows Kintaro clients to strategically invest in alternatives to fiat based instruments.
With close collaboration from Fexserv Fund Services (Malta) Ltd and Kintaro Capital’s team of researchers and portfolio managers, the fund looks forward to a bright and promising future in crypto investment.
