amnis announces new location in Amsterdam
To bring global transaction banking to Dutch SMEs, amnis just announced the opening of a new office in Amsterdam. So far, the Swiss fintech company operated with offices in Zurich, Vaduz, Vienna and Prague. The recent closing of a Series-A funding round, however, allows amnis to expand into new markets across Europe.
During the last 12 months, the company entered 5 new countries, opened 3 additional offices and tripled the size of its team. Continuing its growth trajectory, amnis now started business in the Netherlands with a new office in Amsterdam. The local team will support Dutch SMEs in optimizing and simplifying their international payments and foreign exchange. With Lars de Zeeuw, Country Manager of the Benelux market, amnis has gained a treasury specialist with proven expertise in the banking industry.
“I am very excited to start at amnis! The company is a solid Swiss-based firm and transparency is key in their behavior towards customers. Furthermore, the platform is easy to work with and offers everything you need for your international banking – at the lowest cost. We are always looking for the best solution for our clients. Therefore, we have experienced people in every country who know the markets and are keen to help SMEs find a solution for the problems they will encounter in the international payment industry these days.” says Lars de Zeeuw, Country Manager Benelux.
The Netherlands has strong trading links with the rest of the world and SMEs, Midden- en Kleinbedrijf (MKB) in Dutch, play an important role in its open economy. According to the Statistics Netherlands (CBS), a third of the 1.2 million SMEs in the Netherlands are also active in international trade. That said, foreign exchange transactions and global payments are a highly relevant topic for Dutch SMEs. Since smaller firms often struggle to find an affordable and efficient trading and payment tool, the local team in Amsterdam is looking forward to introducing amnis’ solution to the Dutch market.
In addition to currency exchange and cross-border as well as local payments, amnis’ clients can make free, real-time transfers around the clock to suppliers overseas within their own PEER network. To facilitate SMEs’ international business even further, amnis recently launched a business account that enables companies to receive payments in 20+ currencies with virtual IBAN accounts in their own name. Moreover, thanks to the successful financing round, amnis will add more services to its portfolio by the end of 2022, including invoicing, business debit cards and E-commerce solutions.
