Brave New World Investments AB is a Swedish investment company which generates shareholder value by making equity investments using its shareholders’ funds. Brave New World Investments operates at the intersection of traditional finance and digital finance – traditional in that it invests in equities and digital in that it keeps all of it’s liquid assets in cryptocurrency.
The company was founded in early 2017 in Linköping, Sweden. Brave New World Investments’ inception was an interesting one as we believe it was the first limited liability company in the banked part of the world to be supplied initial funding entirely in digital cryptocurrency instead of fiat currency due to not being able to start a bank account. Bank account acquisition was prevented by the Swedish banks due to fears surrounding the way their US operations would be affected by the US Iran financial sanctions if the bank allowed Swedish-Iranian business. Except for a few asset freezes, there were no relevant sanctions in Sweden or in the European Union obstructing Swedish-Iranian business in that manner.
However, by April 2018 the Central Bank of Iran issued a domestic ban on cryptocurrency dealings whereby Brave New World Investments suspended all activities in relation to Iran.
Currently the company operates as an investment vehicle for cryptocurrencies.
