Nordic Fintech Snippets – June
Digital finance and fintech market has been as hot as the ongoing summer in the Nordics.
Just yesterday we heard about the merger of the Nordic mobile wallets Vipps, MobilePay and Pivo. Prior to that, Tink was acquired by Visa, Klarna raised funding with a higher valuation than any other Nordic Bank has, and Ferratum launched a new challenger bank.
In case you missed it, we launched last week the annual Helsinki Fintech Guide 2021 industry guidebook. You can get it for free over here.
This is Nordic Fintech Snippets, the combined effort of all the Nordic Fintech Hubs, sharing the most important and latest news in fintech and digital finance from each country.
