Amnis has closed a series A financing round of 8.6 million francs


AMNIS Treasury Services, a Zurich-based fintech founded in 2014 with the aim of reshaping international banking services for SMEs, has announced the closing of an 8.6 million CHF Series A investment round. The funding round, led by Lansdowne Partners, will enable further market expansion and product development.

Amnis provides SMEs with an international banking solution to transfer money abroad, exchange currencies and collect payments on a single, cost-effective platform. Committed to transparency and efficiency, the platform focuses on the needs of SMEs, giving them the opportunity to enter the global economy with a competitive advantage. In the past 12 months, the company entered 5 new countries, opened 3 additional offices in Vaduz, Vienna and Prague and tripled the size of its team. In addition, the platform’s payment volume has increased significantly by more than 100% compared to last year.

The new investment financing allows amnis to strengthen the company’s core assets and continue its expansion into new markets across Europe. Lansdowne Partners, as lead investor, is an investment management firm that aims to foster European technology innovation through its investments. Spicehaus Partners, which led the previous funding round, acted as co-lead investor. Daniel Andres, co-founder and partner at Spicehaus Partners, commented:

“I believe that amnis is the best example of Swiss innovation and expertise, ready to expand internationally with a portfolio of exceptional services tailored to SMEs.”

Michael Wüst, co-founder and CEO of amnis, said:

“We are delighted that our existing investors as well as a world-renowned investment manager have contributed to the success of this financing round. This investment allows us to further drive international growth and bring our global transaction banking solution to even more SMEs across Europe. We have already deployed commercial activities in 6 countries. This funding round gives us confidence that we can replicate our business model in other markets as well.

Amnis was founded in 2014 by Michael Wüst (CEO), Robert Bloch (COO) and Philippe Christen (CFO) to facilitate international business for SMEs, a high-potential sector which they believe is underserved by traditional banks. To meet its high ambitions, amnis has constantly improved its core product, accelerated digital integration and added local and multi-currency IBAN accounts to its product portfolio.

Thanks to this successful financing round, amnis will start its activities in France, Slovakia and the Benelux market by the end of 2022 and will provide more services to SMEs, including billing solutions, debit cards and e-commerce.
