Banking infrastructure innovator, Episode Six, clinches $48m in Series C funding

Episode Six (E6), a global FinTech specialising in enterprise-grade payment processing and digital ledger infrastructure, has announced it has raised $48m in a Series C funding round.

The investment was led by Avenir, a growth stage investment firm committed to supporting category-defining, tech-enabled companies. Anthos Capital, a consumer and technology investment firm and a previous investor in E6, also participated in the funding round.

Known for their innovative TRITIUM platform, Episode Six serves as a modernising force for banks and companies operating within the payments space. Their platform aids businesses in delivering top-tier payments solutions with real-time adaptability – a critical feature in a market landscape driven by fast-changing consumer demands.

Episode Six plans to utilise the new funding to broaden its go-to-market strategies, build upon its global market leadership, and accelerate business scaling. Already boasting successful collaborations with top 50 global banks, the firm is well-positioned to drive the modernisation journeys for an increasing number of companies operating in the payment ecosystem.

John Mitchell, E6 co-founder and CEO said, “The burden of relying on legacy technology continues to present challenges, especially at a time when innovation is key to winning and retaining customers. This, paired with the rising cost of operating legacy technology, is the reason we are seeing a significant increase in interest in our solution.

“We’ll lean into Avenir and Anthos Capital’s investment to bolster our presence in global financial markets, putting us in a position to help banks and other companies modernise their payments infrastructure and remain competitive.”

E6 continues to expand its global operations, currently spanning across 38 countries with teams situated in the U.S., UK, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, and Australia. The firm’s investor portfolio includes reputable names such as HSBC, Mastercard, SBI Investment Co., Ltd., Anthos Capital, and Avenir.
