UK FinTech Curve opens New York office ahead of its planned autumn US launch

The British all-cards-in-one solution provider Curve is planning to go across the pond in the fall and has taken a clear step towards it with the opening of its first US office.

The office is based in Brooklyn, New York, which is reportedly part of the FinTech company’s plan to create 184 new jobs in the next five years.

Curve is also planning on investing $17m in research and development in the US.

The news about the opening comes as the UK venture is dealing with a smattering of negative deadlines, accusing the FinTech of altering its own Wikipedia page, fudging its user numbers and not giving crowdfund investors enough financial information before letting them invest.

Curve’s founder hachar Bialick has denied the that only 14% of its users are consistently using the service. Instead he has said that the real number is closer to 80% and he has accused the media of publishing “lies” and “untruths”.

In Regards to the crowdfunding campaign, Bialick has responded that it was “not the right thing to provide any information” as it could give Curve’s competitors an edge. He added that crowdfunding investors should just trust the due diligence carried out by institutional investors.

Curve has said it has always adhered to Wikipedia’s guidelines.
