Fintech unicorn Fumi Technology (福米科技) has completed a new round of funding worth CNY 250 million (USD 36.6 million), with Gopher Asset leading this round of strategic investment.
Fumi Technology is a world-leading fintech company in the security market. It provides security trading and data services based on a panoply of complete intellectual property and applications on PC and mobile phone. Founded in 2016, Fumi Technology has finished three funding rounds of CNY 50 million, CNY 120 million and CNY 200 million, respectively.
Wang Anquan (王安全), founder and CEO of Fumi Technology, said that the money raised will be applied to product upgrade and R&D, in an effort to continuously promote the globalization of the company.

Wang said the latest strategic investment will yield a win-win outcome. The parent company of Gopher Asset – Noah Financial Wealth Management – is China's leading wealth management organization, providing services for high net worth individuals. By contrast, Gopher Asset is more focused on asset allocation and absolute return on investment. The technology and services of Fumi will help complete Noah Financial's ecosystem, and vice versa.
