The company’s previous round of funding was a £20m Series C investment in 2016, from investors including Leumi Partners and Oaktree Capital Management.

Last year, Da Vinci Capital partnered with lending platform ID Finance to launch a $200m FinTech-focused debt finance fund. Around the same time as this vehicle launch, the firm led the $3.5m investment in to travel expense management platform WAY2VAT.

The online loans sub-sector of marketplace lending, led the way for investments last year, representing around 45 per cent of the capital. The next biggest area was the SME financing solutions, with the companies receiving around 31 per cent of the equity share.
