Deloitte advises Global Market Access on capital raise
14 March, 2022 - Deloitte has successfully advised Global Market Access (GMA), a Dubai-based Fintech company with a market-leading trade execution technology platform, on a capital raise from The World Bank Group’s International Finance Corporation (IFC) and SBI Ventures, an investment arm of Japan-based SBI Group.
GMA is rapidly growing with a unique mission to connect all market and asset classes globally under one secure financial trading ecosystem with a specialized focus on enhancing trade and liquidity in emerging and frontier markets. GMA operates under the name Global Trading Network (GTN).
The US$20 million equity investment from IFC and SBI will further drive GMA’s global expansion plans, both strategically and financially, and support in accelerating the company’s objective to cover all global electronically tradable markets and instruments by the end of 2022.
Deloitte advised and supported the shareholders and management of GMA throughout the deal which completed in February 2022.
"We are very pleased to have successfully advised GMA on this unique transaction. The company has distinguished itself as a leading innovator in a rapidly evolving space, and we are excited about the global expansion and the positive impact that it will bring to emerging markets by way of technological accessibility and financial inclusion,” said Robin Butteriss, Partner at Deloitte Middle East, who led the M&A team advising GMA.
“The transaction showcases the Middle East region’s potential to foster world-class innovative companies and further highlights Deloitte’s ability in the Middle East to deliver high profile cross border M&A transactions," he added.
