Augmentum Fintech plc

$10 million investment into Anyfin

Augmentum Fintech plc (LSE: AUGM) (the “Company” or “Augmentum”), the UK’s only publicly listed investment company focussing on the fintech sector, announces that it has made a US$10 million (c. £7.3 million) investment into Stockholm based consumer credit refinancing company AnyFin, marking Augmentum’s first investment into Sweden.

This investment follows Anyfin’s US$30 million Series B round in May 2020.

Anyfin (www.anyfin.com) was founded in 2017 by former executives of Klarna, Spotify and iZettle, and leverages technology to allow credit-worthy consumers the opportunity to improve their financial wellbeing by consolidating and refinancing existing credit agreements with improved interest rates, as well as offering smart budgeting tools. Anyfin is available in Sweden, Finland and Germany and this funding round will help it further expand into other European countries and develop additional products.

Tim Levene, CEO of Augmentum Fintech, said: “We are delighted to join Anyfin’s investment round, which will allow this hugely experienced and talented team to continue to address Europe’s large ($1.2 trillion*) and fragmented unsecured credit market. Their focus on improving the financial well-being of consumers through innovative digital products is a mission that resonated strongly with us. We look forward to working with them as they achieve their vision over the coming years which includes a wider product offering and growth across Europe”.
