Wavecrest Growth Partners and Wells Fargo Strategic Capital also participated in the investment. Today’s funding brings the company’s total outside capital raised to $116 million.

Vijay Oddiraju, Volante Technologies CEO, said that the investment will help “accelerate” the company’s product roadmap. This includes the company’s initiatives in global real-time payments, the UK New Payments Architecture (NPA), as well as domestic and cross-border ISO 20022 modernization. Oddiraju added that the funding will help Volante Technologies bring its Payments-as-a-Service solution to mid-tier banks in the U.S. and Europe. Oddiraju pointed to FedNow Instant Payments, The Clearing House RTP, and SEPA Instant Payments as developments that are driving opportunity in and adoption of “modern payments technology.”

Volante helps financial institutions modernize payments. This enables them to focus on executing their business models, pursue new opportunities, and scale their operations. The company offers real-time/instant payments connectivity, embedded preprocessing that works with existing technology to enhance customer service, as well as U.S. wire payments. Volante’s low-code financial integration platform enables users to leverage visual modeling to integrate with and orchestrate workflows to build a variety of financial, transaction-based services.

Nari Ansari, Managing Director at Sixth Street Growth, praised both the the company’s PaaS and low-code payments platform as offering “a compelling value proposition.” Ansari added that it was a good time for Volante to look to scale its operations in order to take advantage of FIs that are “increasingly prioritizing both investment in payments modernization and partnerships with fintech companies.”

Founded in 2001, Volante Technologies is headquartered in Jersey City, New Jersey. The company’s Payments-as-a-Service and low-code platform process millions of transactions and trillions in value every day. Four of the top five global corporate banks and two of the world’s largest card networks rely on Volante Technologies’ payments solutions.

Last month, the company was named to The IDC FinTech Rankings Top 100 for 2023. This marked the third year Volante had earned a spot in the IDC’s Fintech Top 100. In September, the company introduced new Chief Operating Officer David Weber.
