Mambu market-leading, modern SaaS banking platform, has announced raising €235 million in an EQT Growth-led Series E funding round, stated to be the largest financing round to date for a banking software platform. The funding brings the company’s valuation to €4.9 billion post-money, making it one of the highest-valued B2B SaaS companies founded in Europe.
Mambu’s SaaS banking platform states to accelerate and simplifies the way financial products are built and deployed by financial institutions. Powering both the creation of new fintech as well as the migration of existing financial institutions onto more modern tech stacks, Mambu counts banks, lenders, fintech, and financial institutions as its customers, with over 50 million end-users leveraging Mambu’s technology every day. The banking and securities enterprise software market is over €100 billion in size and experiencing double-digit annual growth, according to Gartner.
Mambu has delivered year-on-year growth of more than 120% in Q3 of 2021. The company has stated to have signed over 40 customers in 2021 to date, with more than 55% of new customers now being won outside of Europe, and significant commercial deployments across the globe including N26, Raiffeisen Bank, BancoEstado, and ABN Amro. With 800 employees globally, Mambu continues to invest in its people and the community and has a top-decile employee satisfaction score, a progressive flexible work environment with a four-day summer schedule, and a bold ESG and sustainability strategy for the years ahead.
The round is led by EQT Growth, the growth equity strategy of the purpose-driven global investment organization EQT. Mambu and EQT Growth share an absolute commitment to responsible investing and diversity and inclusion. EQT states to be the first private markets firm to formalize science-based targets to address climate change and one of the first companies in the world to have enshrined its Statement of Purpose to have a positive impact on its Articles of Association. As well as supporting Mambu’s commitment to sustainability, D&I, and financial inclusion, EQT Growth plans to work closely with the company to support its further global expansion, platform innovation, and ramp-up of key hires across the growing platform. FT Partners was the exclusive financial advisor on this transaction.
