Congratulations to our portfolio company Embed Clearing on their recently announced acquisition by FTX US!

The acquisition signals FTX's intention to expand the financial services it offers to US customers, and will enable it to route, execute, clear, and custody all customer equities and options accounts and trades through use of Embed's infrastructure and licensure. In addition, Embed and FTX US share a common goal to provide whitelabel brokerage services to other businesses, applications, and customers.
