Santander and Monitise Partner for Fintech JV

SantanderBanco Santander and mobile money firm Monitise have partnered to launch a fintech venture builder.

The 50:50 joint venture is intended to invest in and then scale fintech businesses with the potential to redefine and support financial services globally.


Both partners have committed to provide up to £10m of capital each over two years, dependent on the scale and nature of opportunities identified.
