LONDON and FRANKFURT, Germany, August 27, 2014-- In the course of their international expansion plans and the recent opening of a Singaporean office, the ayondo group announced today that it has received an additional SGD 5 million in funding from Singapore-based Private Equity group Luminor Capital.

The holding company, which operated as an investment group under the name Next Generation Finance Invest until April 2014, has invested in innovative companies and technologies in the financial technology space (FinTech) since 2008. In this high-growth area, the group aims to expand its share in the market and is paving the way for international expansion.

"We are extremely happy that Luminor continues to back our business plan after already investing CHF 5.5 million in January this year. The funds will enable us to implement our global B2B strategy as well as our Asia growth strategy. We continue to receive strong interest in our products from all over the world and we are very excited to be able to grow our partnership portfolio significantly," says Robert Lempka, CEO of the ayondo group.

The company has a dynamic and forward-looking management team and we are particularly excited about what we can achieve together in Asia."
