Fintech

The presence of technology-enabled services on the Romanian market has increased dramatically, driving the constant growth of online sales and changing the way transactions have traditionally been concluded.  

We are pleased to see this trend continuing, enhanced by the existence of Romania's highly specialised IT&C resources. We are currently witnessing the development of block-based financial platforms.

We are actively involved in setting up the first venture capital fund to develop and invest in technology start-ups, are regularly involved with payment institutions and issuers of e-money and have assisted with various tentative and successful projects in this new field.
