About Naro

At Naro, we've reimagined fund infrastructure to build and provide innovative capital allocation solutions. We enable companies to build their own customized fund products, such as ETFs, Index Funds and Money Market Funds, without an operational and regulatory burden.

This way we are redistributing earnings among all involved parties, giving the companies a bigger share of the earnings of the fund market, while creating better products, lower fees and higher interest for the end customer.

Naro is remote-first, but has collaborative working opportunities in Berlin and Cologne. We work with international businesses and have raised $3 million from top-tier VCs and experienced operators from the finance and technology scene.
