RELATED TOPICS​

London based FinTech Flagstone, developer of a UK cash deposit marketplace, has raised USD15 million in venture capital in a round led by OMERS Ventures and supported by existing investors including Kindred Capital and Moneysupermarket.Flagstone was founded in 2013 and has grown rapidly to become the leader in the UK cash deposit platform market having transmitted more than GBP5 billion in deposits since 2015. The business provides individuals, wealth managers, businesses and charities with access to hundreds of cash deposit accounts, many with market leading or exclusive interest rates, from 44 banks including high street names such as HSBC and Nationwide as well as a host of challenger banks.

Flagstone’s cash deposit marketplace enables clients to increase their interest income and manage their risk through diversification and greater use of FSCS protection.  Flagstone provides its cash deposit platform to clients of Revolut in the UK and is already the exclusive cash deposit platform for clients of Charities Aid Foundation, St James’s Place, Quilter Cheviot, Tilney Group and many other leading wealth management firms.

Simon Merchant, Co-Founder and Co-Managing Partner of Flagstone, says: 
“Raising growth capital from leading investors such as OMERS Ventures is a testament to the strength of our business model and the great work that the Flagstone team does every day to support clients with protecting their cash deposit investments. This new financing will support the acceleration of our plans to extend our penetration of the UK market to new customer segments.”

Harry Briggs, Managing Partner for Omers Ventures in London, says: “The Flagstone team impressed us from the start. The founders know this market inside out and have quietly built the runaway market-leader in the UK by addressing systemic issues in the banking system by using smart technology to help empower users to earn more interest income and reduce risk. In these uncertain times, everyone – households, small businesses, charities – is anxious about cash, and Flagstone helps people make their money work harder for them at the click of a button. We are very much looking forward to working with the team.”
