NEW YORK, and LONDON, and DUBAI, UAE and MEXICO CITY, Aug. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Volante Technologies Inc., a leading provider of payments and financial messaging solutions in the cloud, today announced that it has raised USD 35M in growth equity financing led by Wavecrest Growth Partners with strategic participation from BNY Mellon, Citi Ventures, PostePay and Visa Inc.
The capital raise represents the company's first outside investment after nearly two decades of strong organic growth and profitability. Volante will direct the capital towards accelerating its cloud expansion globally and its reach into new geographies, market segments, and industry verticals.

Two years after entering the payments arena with VolPay, they processed the first U.S. real-time payment. Today, they can count four of the top five corporate banks among their more than one hundred customers."

We look forward to accelerating the company's growth trajectory."
