Moneyhub, the market-leading Open Finance data, intelligence and payments platform, today announces its largest investment round to date, a total of $18m, to fuel its rapid expansion into new markets.
Sir Peter Wood, British entrepreneur and innovator, is leading the investment round via a newly formed investment vehicle SPWOne. SPWOne invests and supports a range of innovative businesses across their lifecycle.

This demands continuous innovation, using the power of Open Finance and Open Data to create transformational opportunities for them to build closer relationships with their customers and successfully evolve their businesses.
