UK FinTech Curve expands operations in the US with new Brooklyn office

UK’s banking platform Curve has announced the expansion of its operations in the United Offices with Brooklyn, NY as the base for its US launch. The FInTech states that it will create 185 new jobs in the US by 2024 and will invest around $ 17 million in research and development over the next decade. The US expansion will be led by Curve’s new VP and Head of North America, Amanda Orson. She will be based out of the Brooklyn office and will be responsible for strengthening the FinTech’s US business and grow the US team.

Amanda Orson, Curve’s new VP, Head of North America said, “Curve’s all-in-one value proposition, ease of use, and obsession on customer experience are exactly what the US market needs. I am honoured to join the team and lead Curve’s product expansion in the United States and be able to start this adventure from the world’s premier financial hub, recruiting from a pool of the best tech talent in the world.”

Recently, Curve introduced Apple Pay to its customer base in a bid to enhance its payments service and facilitate fast in-store, in-app purchases. It also launched a new feature to allow users to send money in around 25 different currencies.

Eric Gertler, Empire State Development Acting Commissioner and President & CEO-designate said, “New York City has long been known as the center of the finance industry — and our rapidly growing tech ecosystem is building on that strong foundation to support some of the most innovative, interesting, and successful fintech firms. Curve’s decision to open its first U.S. office in Brooklyn is a testament to everything the Empire State has to offer, and we are proud they will call New York home for years to come.”

“While New York City has long established itself as the epicentre of the finance industry, we have also become a global leader in tech innovation,” said NYCEDC President and CEO James Patchett. “As we build on that success, we’re proud of our work to attract Curve to Downtown Brooklyn, which we believe is the new frontier for a thriving fintech community that will create good jobs for New Yorkers and strengthen our city’s tech ecosystem.”
