Whew, time really flies when you’re innovating! This year, Trustly is celebrating its 10th birthday. It’s a big milestone for us and we couldn’t be more proud of the growth we’ve achieved in the past decade. Across Europe, ever-changing regulation has challenged established financial institutions and FinTechs alike, but at Trustly, we’ve embraced the changes and used them to propel us forward.
Of course, we couldn’t have done any of it without supportive partners and dedicated employees. So to celebrate the past 10 years and set our sights on the next 10, we invited our partners and friends to our offices in London and Stockholm for an evening of mingling.
So what will the next 10 years hold? In the wake of Nordic Capital’s majority acquisition of Trustly, new owners and resources promise to support Trustly in growing faster.
We also hosted a fireside chat moderated by Johan Hallsenius (below, left), in which Fredrik Näslund (below, right), Partner and Head of Technology & Payments at Nordic Capital, and Trustly CEO Oscar Berglund (below, middle) discussed the most compelling factors that have contributed to Trustly’s success thus far.
“It starts with the product,” said Näslund. “And then, there’s a very strong management team and staff. On top of that, the online banking payments market is growing extremely quickly.” Between the innovative technology, the skilled team and the market potential, Näslund feels very excited to be part of the Trustly journey.
Berglund added: “Our growth is a function of consumers and merchants liking our product. We plan to keep innovating so that our product works well for the consumer and works well for the merchant … Our growth is the result, not the goal.”
Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us, and cheers to the next 10 years!
