Transfermate will also provide international payment services to all corporate and small and mid-sized enterprise clients of ING as part of the deal. The tech companys series A is dedicated to accelerating its growth across the US, Canada, Europe, and the Asian Pacific region.

Transfermate holds a network of payment licences across the world, including in all 50 US states.

The investment is expected to close in the third quarter of 2018, subject to final documentation and regulatory approval.
