Liquidity Group has announced the launch of a new $200 million debt fund called Liquidity 7, which is designated for qualified investors alone. Harel Group has committed $30 million as the fund's anchor investor.
Liquidity Group specializes in developing AI technologies for financial applications, as well as manages credit and equity investments with a total AUM of $2.5 billion. The new fund, managed by a Liquidity Group subsidiary and licensed by Luxembourg's Commission for the Supervision of the Financial Sector (CSSF), marks a collaborative effort between Liquidity Group and the Harel Group.
This fund is a part of Liquidity Group's larger strategy, which includes utilizing advanced AI and machine learning technologies for efficient capital deployment and monitoring. In 2023, these technologies played a significant role in Liquidity Group's growth, particularly noted by MUFG's increased investment commitment and the establishment of new credit funds and an equity investment fund focused on technology companies.
The fund's investment strategy involves extending credit to technology companies in various stages of growth across the Asia Pacific, the USA, and Europe. The fund's management company also holds the necessary licensing to extend credit in Germany's regulated credit market.
Liquidity Group's approach in this new fund is based on its patented financial forecasting and monitoring technology, aiming to maintain its track record in the credit field.
Ron Daniel, CEO of Liquidity Group, commented on the new partnership with Harel Group, acknowledging it as a significant step for Liquidity Group, especially considering the firm's plans to expand activities in the Israeli market and deepen partnerships with Israeli institutional bodies.
"I would like to thank the Harel Group for their support. This investment marks the first time since the establishment of Liquidity that an Israeli institutional investor joined as an anchor investor,” he said. “We are excited and look forward to expanding the group's activities in the Israeli market in the coming years and continuing to deepen the partnership with the Harel Group and other Israeli investing bodies."
