CloudMargin, a London, UK-based creator of a collateral and margin management solution native to the cloud, completed a US$10m funding round.
Backers included LVC, the venture investing arm of Leucadia National Corporation (NYSE: LUK), the publicly traded investment holding company and parent of Jefferies, the global investment banking firm, IHS Markit (Nasdaq: INFO), a provider of critical information, analytics and solutions, and Illuminate Financial Management.
The company intends to use the funds for product development, scale sales, partnerships and marketing efforts in both established and new regions.
