Investment Corporation of Dubai Invests in Centralway Numbrs


The Dubai government’s sovereign wealth fund, the Investment Corporation of Dubai (ICD), has recently taken a “significant” stake in Swiss-made banking app Centralway Numbrs.

Centralway Numbrs is a Zurich-headquartered mobile banking aggregator app that allows users to both track and manage spending across multiple bank accounts from a single mobile app. As of right now, it claims that 1.5 million bank accounts in Germany are using the app, but has not released figures as to how many active users this amounts to. Its majority shareholder is Saidler & Co.

Numbrs has previously disclosed around $70 million in funding, with $125 million in total funding.

The company has long promised to launch in the UK, and in today’s announcement, repeated the promise, dating the launch to “early 2017.”
