Alan Howard leads $25 million investment in London crypto custodian Copper

British billionaire fund manager Alan Howard has led a $25 million investment in the London-based crypto custodian Copper.

The raise is an extension of Copper’s $50 million Series B raise, led by venture capital firms Dawn Capital and Target Global, which closed in May.

Howard, who set up and, until 2019, was CEO of the hedge fund Brevan Howard, has made a spate of investments in the crypto sector in 2021. His investments include British crypto payments app Bottlepay, Cologne-based neobroker Nextmarkets, recently launched crypto exchange Bullish Global and Komainu, the Jersey-regulated crypto custodian backed by Nomura.
