(Alliance News) - Apax Global Alpha Ltd on Wednesday said it will invest EUR2.5 million in financial software platform Tide.
The Guernsey-based company will make the investment after the Apax Digital Fund, in which it is a partner, led a Series C funding round for Tide.
Tide received just over USD100 million in the fundraising, achieving a valuation of over USD650 million, according to an announcement by Apax Partners LLP on Monday.
FTSE 250-listed Apax Global committed USD50 million to the Apax Digital Fund in 2017.
Tide is a financial and software platform that provides business accounts and banking services to small and medium-sized companies.
Its customer base more than doubled in 2020 and it now has over 350,000 members, Apax Partners said.
"The investment puts Tide in a position to continue to develop its business financial platform, grow its market share, as well as expand globally," Apax Global added.
Shares in Apax Global were trading down 0.2% at 202.48 pence each in London on Wednesday morning.
