Saidler & Co. and Marius Nacht intend to co-invest and facilitate each other’s business initiatives.
Saidler & Co., the investment firm owned by Martin Saidler, the founder of Numbrs, is the controlling shareholder of the company. Saidler & Co. is a Swiss investment firm, operating as a single family office and controlling assets across the digital financial services, technology, and real estate industries out of its offices in Zurich and Luxembourg.
Upon concluding the investment in Numbrs, Marius Nacht and Martin Saidler intend to co-invest and facilitate each other’s business initiatives. Marius Nacht is currently in the final stages of setting up a large fund coined aMoon to invest in Israeli Life Science companies while Martin Saidler’s family office is extending its investments into financial services, media and AI industries. aMoon’s mission is to unlock the value of Israel’s life science industry (lack of funding) by directly investing into breakthrough innovations (mid to late stage investments) focused on accelerating cures for leading causes of death and confronting the biggest cost-drivers of the global healthcare industry. Marius Nacht is looking for additional noted European investors to join his cause.
Marius Nacht and Martin Saidler share the views that technology is revolutionizing the global financial sector. They are united in their belief that Numbrs digital banking platform, being independent of the banks, can reshape the sector. Over time the two entrepreneurs would like to import this vision into the Israeli banking environment.
