Crossfin Technology Holdings: Meet Anton Gaylard
“I have never experienced as much interest in Africa from the external investment community as we are witnessing at present.”
Anton Gaylard is acting on that interest. He is chief operating officer (COO) of Crossfin, the technological investment firm with a focus on fintech startups formed in June after South Africa-based private equity and venture capital firm Capital Eye signed a strategic investment partnership with the Multiply Group.
Capital Eye manages a portfolio of investments spread primarily across Sub-Saharan Africa, but also in the United States (US), United Kingdom (UK) and Jersey. African investments include wiGroup, Emerge Mobile and Indaba Mobile. Gaylard, who has worked in a series of executive roles in South Africa, says Crossfin will be a larger platform for Capital Eye to invest into.
