Their allocation into blockchain provides 12PCM with an integral financial footprint into the emerging technology sector, while complimenting their existing investment portfolio.

President of GDA Capital David Shafrir commented on the announcement by saying, “As a merchant bank that is tailored for the digital world, our job is to engage with like minded firms who are trying to bring traditional capital into the digital asset economy. We are thrilled to be working with 12 Peers. With an investment mandate previously focused on traditional securities, their transition into blockchain signals a larger wave of adoption and interest at the institutional level.”

Gord Ferguson, Founder and EVP of 12 Peers, states “We have followed the GDA team of pros for some time and view their analytics and genius in this ‘digital sector’ as leading edge. Like many industries that have had to evolve or perish, we think that within the Financial services industry there will continue to be movement into the crypto and blockchain sector. We view our latest investment with GDA as a continuing ‘good news’ story that will lead to other investments by 12PCM into this important space.”
