Voyager described the development as a move to speed up its growth.

"With this funding now completed, we will now accelerate the execution of our product roadmap to support our rapid account growth, asset growth, and increased trading activity of our customer base," CEO and co-founder Stephen Ehrlich said in a press announcement on Monday.
