Will Ferrell invests into Danish neobank Lunar

Danish neobank Lunar has welcomed American actor Will Ferrell as its latest investor.

The FinTech company announced this via a LinkedIn post but did not state how much money Ferrell invested.

In the post, Ferrell said, “I am excited to take part in Lunar’s mission to give consumers and businesses more power from their money. By joining Lunar I am expanding my engagement in the Nordic countries, which is close to my heart.

“Nordic people are smart, sexy and are tired of having their money messed with. That’s where Lunar comes into play as a digital disrupter in the financial industry.”

As part of the investment, Ferrell has made a new advert for the company, which was shared via the LinkedIn post.

Lunar previously raised €210m in its Series D funding round back in July 2021. The round was led by Heartland and also supported by Kinnevik and Tencent. It raised the funds to support the rollout of its digital financing offering across the Nordic region, as well as make acquisitions.

The digital bank was founded in 2015 and claims to have over 400,000 users across Denmark, Sweden and Norway. It offers both business and personal banking accounts.
