Fintech firm Fnality has completed a Series B funding round, raising £77.7 million. Lead investors included Goldman Sachs and BNP Paribas. The completion of this round follows a £55 million Series A round in 2019, bringing Fnality’s total capital raised to £132.7 million.

Other investors included the Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC), Euroclear, Nomura, and WisdomTree as well as some investors from the Series A round, such as BNY Mellon, Barclays, and State Street.

In a press release, CEO Rhomaios Ram comments that the funding round is a representation of “the financial sector’s desire for a central bank money backed blockchain-based settlement solution that bridges the gap between traditional finance (TradFi) and decentralised finance (DeFi) in wholesale markets”.
