Traydstream, a pioneering UK fintech company at the nexus of digitising and automating the trade finance industry, have announced the successful completion of its $21 million (approx. £17.2 million) Series B financing round.

Led by Pivot Investment Partners, a U.S.-based fintech investment firm, and e& capital, the investment arm of e&, this funding round will catalyse the next phase of Traydstream’s growth and advance its mission to transform trade finance. It will also accelerate Traydstream’s efforts at enhancing its AI-powered platform, which has already garnered acclaim for its significant impact on trade documentation scrutiny, compliance checks, and risk management. By further expanding its technology stack, Traydstream is poised to unlock new dimensions of efficiency, accuracy, and agility for its growing global clientele.

Dinkar Jetley, Pivot’s Managing Partner commented, “As B2B fintech investors, we invest in high-quality management teams with deep industry expertise who bring distinctive and durable tech-enabled solutions to addressing key-critical needs.  With less than 1% of global trade occurring digitally, modernising trade finance represents a massive opportunity.  We have been greatly impressed by Traydstream’s team, platform, and strong traction with clients across geographies.  We look forward to partnering with the leadership team on this exciting next phase of the company’s growth, accelerating momentum and serving the needs of a fast-growing roster of clients, both banks and corporates.”
