We are grateful for Alibaba Entrepreneurs Fund’s support and we are determined in becoming a leader in the automated wealth management area.”

“Magnum has dedicated itself to algorithm development and technological innovation. Along with our thorough understanding on financial markets, AQUMON is built into a robo-advisory engine recognized by industry experts – it is foreseeable that Magnum’s value will increase with AQUMON’s growth,” added Don Huang, co-founder of Magnum.

Since its establishment in 2015, Magnum has raised more than 3 million USD in capital through its seed investment round, pre-Series A round and the Series A round this time. The team has grown to 25 people, with offices in Hong Kong, Shenzhen and Singapore among others.
