This is one of the first fintech funds backed by the Luxembourg Future Fund and the European Investment Fund. Other investors include S&P Global and institutional, strategic and family offices.

The DLA Piper Luxembourg-based Investment Funds team was led by partner Catherine Pogorzelski, assisted by associate Marceau Visano and trainee Laura Massagé.
