Estonia’s Fintech company Tuum raises €25M

Tuum, the leading next-generation core banking provider, today announces that it has raised EUR25M, in a series B financing round led by CommerzVentures, with participation from Speedinvest alongside existing investors.

Tuum has expanded rapidly since signing its first client partnership in February 2019, working with banks to ease their digital transition onto cheaper, flexible systems that can free them up to develop new products and enter new verticals. The company now boasts a customer base across 10 countries, with a pronounced presence in the UK, and Nordics. Over the last three years, Tuum’s revenues have soared, demonstrating a compound annual growth rate of over 250%.

Heiko Schwender, Managing Partner at CommerzVentures, the lead investor, said that CommerzVentures has been following and investing inbanking market for a long time. “While it’s hard to break into, this is a huge, highly attractive space, with over 15 billion dollars in annual spending,” he commented. “Tuum’s standout modular approach is particularly suited to today’s ever-changing environment, offering a mature, yet flexible solution to a real pain point.”

Banks replacing their aging systems

Banks around the world will have to replace their aging core systems smoothly and cost-effectively. According to Schwender, Tuum has developed an impressively mature and differentiated offering that can help them do just this. “We are delighted to be leading this series B, and we look forward to working with the Tuum team to help realize the company’s massive potential,” he added.

The fresh infusion of capital will bolster Tuum’s international presence, allowing it to target new territories in the DACH region, Southern Europe, and the Middle East, where it is opening a new office. It will also be used to deepen Tuum’s key competitive differentiators. The company will increase investment into its “smart migration” capabilities, which are making complex core migrations possible in as little as two months. Further investments will refine Tuum’s ‘Business Builder’, a platform designed for significant customization through configuration, providing a compelling alternative to the generic ‘one size fits all’ or ‘toolbox’ approaches of other cloud-native cores. Finally, Tuum will invest funds into expanding its comprehensive suite of modules and rich functionality, which currently include accounts, lending, payments, and card services, catering to both corporate and banking sectors.

Modular and functionality rich digital solution

“I joined Tuum in the summer of last year because I saw the gap in the market for its proposition. Everyone knows that banks need to replace their aging core banking systems if they are going to successfully adapt their business models for digital banking,” Myles Bertrand, CEO of Tuum, commented. “However, no core banking vendor has to date made core migration simple and predictable, which is what Tuum is now doing through a combination of smart migrations, a modular and functionality rich core, massive extensibility, and a broad ecosystem of partners.”
