TransferMate, the world’s leading provider of B2B payments infrastructure-as-a-service, announced a $70 million funding round bringing the company to a valuation of $1 billion and $130 million of total funding. Railpen, one of the largest UK pension funds, managing £37 billion, participated in the round.

TransferMate has grown its global licensing infrastructure and banking network to be one of the widest in the industry and has been chosen as the partner of choice to power B2B payments products for some of the largest software platforms, innovative banks and FinTechs in the world. This funding round which consists entirely of primary capital, will be used to expand its teams globally and further invest in its technology innovation and product suite.

Terry Clune, TransferMate’s Founder, said: “We are delighted to welcome Railpen as a shareholder at this exciting time. By combining our technology and our global licence network, we empower software providers, banks and FinTechs to deliver payments dramatically faster & cheaper than the traditional SWIFT system. We will use this investment to continue to recruit senior financial talent who can help broaden our customer base.”

Sinead Fitzmaurice, CEO of TransferMate, said: “Since the very beginning, we have been on a mission to set new standards in how businesses make and receive international payments. Our commitment to deliver real-time transparency and speed when businesses are conducting cross border payments has resulted in TransferMate becoming the global B2B payments infrastructure of choice for the world’s leading procure-to-pay and spend management platforms. This investment will allow us to accelerate our mission to drive innovation as businesses seek to digitise their B2B payments within the core software that they use to conduct their day-to-day activities.”

Together with the $1 billion valuations, this new round of investment further sets TransferMate apart as the world’s most comprehensive independent B2B payments network. It allows businesses and individuals to make cross-border payments in more than 201 countries and 141 currencies as easily and cost-effectively as if making a domestic funds transfer and with complete transparency of the transaction through to the point of final reconciliation.

Julia Diez, Portfolio Manager at Railpen, said: “We are excited to be part of TransferMate’s journey as it seeks to enable companies to cost-effectively digitalise their cross-border payments. This investment continues Railpen’s strategy of investing in high quality, innovative growth companies for the long term, which supports our purpose to secure our members’ future.”
