The funds will be utilised to support goals for international expansion, especially in the German market, as well as to more aggressively enhance and customise the company's product offering.

Defacto co-founder and CEO Jordane Giuly explains further: “Lack of access to working capital is the number one cause of small business bankruptcy in Europe. That’s why we built Defacto specifically for SMBs with speed and flexibility as our guiding principles.”

Citi Global Spread Products Investing Technology (SPRINT) managing director Patrick Brett added: “As a leading provider of liquidity and innovative credit, municipal and securitized market solutions to institutions around the world, Citi is always on the lookout for game-changing fintech lenders to support. “We have been interested in Defacto for some time, and are excited to partner with Citi Ventures on this investment as well as to act as the senior lender of Defacto’s recent €167 million securitization fund.”
