Paris – January, 16th 2017 – Leading European Personal Finance Management app Bankin’ announces it has raised €7 million in financing from Omnes Capital, CommerzVentures and Generation New Tech. This brings the company’s total financing to date to €8.4 million.
Established in 2011 by Joan Burkovic and Robin Dauzon, Bankin’ has been reshaping the way we manage our bank accounts through an intelligent and user-friendly mobile app that simplifies money management. The app is currently connected to over 350 banks in Europe and is available in France, the UK, Spain and Germany. With more than 2 million synched accounts, the company currently handles the metadata of over 300 million transactions every month.
The new funding will allow Bankin’ to accelerate its R&D efforts into developing features such as in-app wire transfers, automated savings and smart financial recommendations in order to provide a unique, bank-agnostic digital solution for daily money management across Europe.
Commenting on the transaction, Joan Burkovic, co-founder & CEO of Bankin’ said “Our investors signed up to our vision and our values straight away, and we remain independent from the banks, something which is essential to us. Their support is vital to pursue our ambitious growth targets in the months and years to come”.
“With its app, Bankin’ is a clear leader among the various personal finance management solutions. The vision of Joan & Robin combined with an ambitious outlook on product development convinced us to support the company” added Xavier Brunaud, Principal at Omnes Capital.
The closing of this €7 million A-round further demonstrates Clipperton’s expertise in FinTech, after the recent financings of Lydia and KissKissBankBank on top of the sale of Leetchi/Mangopay to Crédit Mutuel Arkéa.
