What Our Industry Partners Say

Co-Head of Principal Investments
J.P. Morgan has always held that a fintech will be successful if it has truly relevant solutions for the industry paired with financing at the right time, so our aim in becoming a major investor in this fund is to see good fintech business models thrive.
