"This investment is going to give us the resources we need to further fuel our mission of leveraging blockchain to reinvent the financial services industry," said Mike Cagney, Co-Founder and CEO of Figure. "We're thrilled to be backed by these top-tier institutions and our recently announced collaboration with Apollo will be an invaluable addition as we expand our business further."

This collaboration extends Apollo's strategy of working with best-in-class fintech firms to seek the operational and cost benefits that blockchain and other technologies can bring to bear."
