Iceland-based Meniga, a personal finance management solutions company, has raised EUR 15 million in Series D funding.


The investment round includes a series of European banks, Groupe BPCE and Crédito Agrícola, and Icelandic VC group Omega ehf, with participation from several existing shareholders. The amount of funding Meniga has received so far is a total of EUR 55 million. 

Previously, in March 2021, Meniga closed USD 10 million in additional funding led by Velocity Capital and Frumtak Ventures. The funding was to be used for continued investment in R&D, and in particular further development of green banking products — building on its carbon spending insights product.

Investment’s purpose and objective

According to the official press release, part of the investment will be used to clear Meniga's existing debt, making the company almost debt-free. The remaining funds will be directed towards implementing Meniga's new strategy, which will focus on enhancing its core capabilities in Data Enrichment and Hyper Personalized Insights for the financial services industry. Additionally, the new strategy aims to enable payment capabilities for banks in the growing Open Banking and Open Finance ecosystem.

As per Groupe BPCE's statement, these capabilities are necessary for all BPCE banks to effectively engage with their end users. Meniga currently empowers the digital banking experience for its users and provides more than 100 million insights for its users every year.

Additionally, Crédito Agrícola commented that its investments are focused on fintech, digitisation, and the future of the financial services sector, with Meniga being a part of its mobile-only banking offer since 2019. Moreover, Crédito Agrícola's extensive network in the Portuguese start-up ecosystem can play an important role in helping Meniga evaluate new diversification opportunities into verticals beyond banks in Portugal and abroad.

On this note, in the summer of 2023, Meniga developed a new strategy which involves simplifying the company's product portfolio, diversifying into verticals beyond banks, targeting new customers in emerging markets across MEA, Latam, and Asia, and creating new operational hubs to drive growth and provide support to customers after the launch of products.
