Digital banking and marketing startup Meniga announced it received a $3.7 million (€3 million) investment from Nordic bank Swedbank. This brings the company’s total funding to $27.1 million since it was founded in 2009.
Swedbank’s investment comes after the bank agreed to launch Meniga’s digital banking solutions for its customers in Sweden and in the Baltic countries. Swedbank has more than 7 million retail customers and 625,000 corporate customers. The bank has 218 branches in Sweden and 133 branches across Baltic countries.
Lotta Lovén, head of digital banking at Swedbank, said that the banks’ customers not only prefer a digital experience, but also want relevant offers and services to make life easier. “We see Meniga as an innovation partner to give our customers a digital experience that includes a better overview and insights of all their finances both from Swedbank and external parties. We are very pleased with the agreed partnership,”Lovén added.
Headquartered in London and with offices also in Reykjavik, Stockholm, and Warsaw, Meniga offers white-label digital banking solutions for 50 million digital banking users in 23 countries for banks such as Santander, Intesa, ING Direct, Commerzbank and mBank. At FinovateEurope earlier this year, the company won Best of Show for Richest Transactions, a solution that helps banks leverage data associated with transactions.
This month, the company’s CEO Georg Ludviksson was selected as one of top 200 Fintech leaders in Europe. In February, the company announced a partnership with France’s second largest banking group, BPCE.
