PassFort, a London-based SaaS solution that helps businesses achieve compliance needs like KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) reporting, raised $16.2 million in a Series A round led by Level Equity, a US growth equity fund.
Existing investors OpenOcean, Episode 1, and Entrepreneur First also participated in the round. Series A is a mix of equity and debt, with $4.89M worth of venture debt being provided by Shard Credit Partners.
The new funding will be put towards stepping up its growth globally — with PassFort noting it’s hired a new C-suite for its growing team to lead the planned global push.
