Partnership with Aion Bank to enable up to €250 millions of asset-backed debt funding
August 31st, 2022 — Copenhagen, Denmark: Moneyflow Group A/S (“Moneyflow”), the Nordic embedded finance startup, today announced it has entered into a debt financing agreement with Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) provider, Aion Bank. Moneyflow intends to provide up to €250 millions of receivables-backed financing to accelerate the roll-out of its embedded finance services across platform partners in the Nordics, as well as broader Europe.
Moneyflow enables companies, primarily SMEs, to sell their invoices and revenue streams directly into their ERP platforms such as Visma e-conomic, Dinero and Ordrestyring. Moneyflow was founded in 2018 by Danish entrepreneur Kim Ulf Rehfeld Thodén. Before returning home to Denmark three years ago, he helped construction companies in the UK with liquidity for over 20 years and more than a million different projects. The experience fuelled the idea to make it easier for SMEs to get paid for their invoices. Moneyflow has a recognized board with highly accomplished executives and entrepreneurs with more than 10 successful past exits. Since inception thousands of companies have relied on Moneyflow to access liquidity and unlock future earnings.
“We believe in a future where getting paid is easy. Upfront, early, or just as agreed, we put the control in the hands of the receiver, not the payer,”
said Kim Ulf Rehfeld Thodén, Moneyflow’s CEO and founder.
“The balance sheet support from Aion Bank is the largest single raise amount made available to a fintech of our nature in Scandinavia. We are now ready to step on the accelerator to take on the large and expanding market opportunity.”
Moneyflow and Aion Bank also plan to extend their cooperation into additional markets. Aion and its technology partner, Vodeno, will provide a number of banking services to Moneyflow, including access to local IBANs and local payment schemes where the Bank is currently established in Europe.
Wojciech Sass, CEO of Aion Bank added:
“We believe the best banking products and services should be accessible to everyone, and Moneyflow is doing exactly that for SMEs. The goal of our BaaS business is to enable brands, retailers and fintechs like Moneyflow to embed financial services that help drive new innovation. We are excited to help the Moneyflow team accelerate their growth that will result in more businesses getting paid faster.”
PJT Partners served as exclusive financial advisor to Moneyflow on this important milestone.
