Fnality International, a UK financial infrastructure fintech, has recently completed its Series B funding round, raising £77.7m. The round saw participation from leading banks and financial services companies, including Goldman Sachs and BNP Paribas.
The Series B funding round included a mix of new and existing investors. Lead investors in the round were Goldman Sachs and BNP Paribas, with additional contributions from DTCC, Euroclear, Nomura, and WisdomTree.

Fnality, which previously raised £55m in a Series A funding round in June 2019, aims to launch its Sterling Fnality Payment System this year. The company’s ultimate goal is to enable real-time settlement of tokenised securities, cross-border FX swaps, and repo transactions.
