UK FinTech Lanistar has said it’s planning to reach a £1bn valuation soon.
Lanistar is an alternative banking business which wants to help customers streamline their money.
It has opened a new European base in Athens as it expands through the continent.
CEO Gurhan Kiziloz outlines plans to the FT’s Banker magazine.
What does this mean?
The Athens office will be a base for Lanistar’s compliance team. It will keep its London HQ but also has a customer service presence in Macedonia.
