Modulr has seen significant user growth and adoption, now processing an annualised transaction value of more than £100bn.

Modulr intends to use the funding to accelerate its geographic footprint, extending its client and partner coverage in existing and new market verticals in the UK and Europe. The funding is anticipated to help Modulr stay at the forefront of innovation in the automation of real-time embedded payments, further expanding the use of Account-to-Account payments and Open Banking payments as well as providing actionable data insights and seeking to broaden its suite of services for current and future customers.
