The capital increase, which was driven by both new and existing investors, will give kompasbank an opportunity to deepen current customer relations and to better serve and develop additional financial services targeted to SMEs.

For this specific capital round, the investors have been focusing on three core elements: the growth of kompasbank’s existing customer base, their independent banking platform, and their opportunity to scale the business model significantly.

kompasbank aims to use their international footprint to serve their customers in a differentiated way, which also allows them to operate on different markets with attractive diversification as an added asset.
