“Oaktree’s additional investment is an endorsement of the management team, the business’ scalability and the appetite for a fresh approach to business finance in the UK.”

Leumi Partners is the investment arm of Bank Leumi, one of Israel’s biggest banks with a history of investing in technology.

Professor Danny Tsiddon, chairman of Leumi Partners and Leumi Group deputy CEO, added: “This is Leumi’s first major investment in FinTech outside of Israel.

“Business e-lending is rapidly growing around the world and is attracting global banks, who see its potential and allocate more and more resources towards it. It is only natural that a bank which specialises in Israeli high-tech and spearheads innovation has chosen to invest in this leading FinTech start-up,” concluded Tsiddon.
