Australia-based fintech Shaype has secured a USD 21.4 million in equity investment in a Series C funding led by Regal Funds Management.


The latest investment round’s revenue will be directed at accelerating growth, having as a focal point the expansion of the team to help support a full pipeline of Australian clients, as well as international development.

Shaype’s Series C closing has an uplift in valuation, while global equity markets and the technology sector particularly have undergone a material repricing in valuations in 2022. Australian fintech companies raised USD 0.8 billion during the first half of 2022, indicating that by the end of the year fintech investments are expected to be down 39% compared to 2021. The drop was accelerated by a second quarter performance where USD 150 million was raised, approximately 75% less than the first quarter of 2022. Consequently, the number of deals made in the second quarter had a 52% collapse, with 24 deals having been carried out.

Shaype is expected to launch solutions for a range of businesses across the financial services, HR, PropTech, and Government sectors by the end of 2022, and by Q4 2022 it aims to be one of the first payments service providers live on New Payments Platform Australia’s PayTo, with both Payment Initiator and Payer services.
