Mafat Dual Use

The Chartered Group has announced the world’s first strategic partnership with MAFAT, the R&D agency of the Israeli Ministry of Defense, for the development of Dual Use, or military-civilian, technologies.

MAFAT is an institution that acts as a bridge between academia, research institutes, start-ups, and large corporations and the Israeli defense ecosystem. MAFAT manages about 1,700 projects per year, about half of which are new projects, and a very wide range of world-leading research is conducted on a daily basis.



Chartered Group has acquired investment opportunities as an anchor investor for “TEL AVIV UNIVERSITY INCUBATION FUND”, the first fund set up by Tel Aviv University, one of the most innovative and central organizations among Israel’s entire startup ecosystem. We offer investment opportunities to investors through “Japan Israel High Tech Ventures 1 LP”. The fund focuses on start-up companies founded by students and professors of Tel Aviv University. In addition, we have secured the right to negotiate for additional investments in companies that are particularly promising among our portfolio of startups, and have the opportunity to increase investment returns.

Tel Aviv University provides various support necessary for the growth of start-up companies invested through this fund, including support for research and development as well as providing a network with external organizations. Going forward, we have put in place a system that will strongly support growth.

About Chartered Opus

Chartered Opus is a platform for the issue of bearer bonds.
Chartered Opus offers professional market participants (clients such as asset managers) the opportunity to realise “securitised” concepts/products for their own investment or for their customers.
Chartered Opus combines the client’s specified assets in a new product and “securitises” them. The Luxembourg Securitisation Act makes it possible to subdivide the balance sheet of an issuer into individual sub-funds (each a “compartment”). This legal option of securitisation transforms selected assets into a balance sheet-accounted sub-fund that is exclusively available to the respective owners. The issuer risk is thus limited to this sub-fund.
