Lunar founder and CEO Ken Klausen said: “We have a vertical strategy focusing only on the Nordics, allowing us to go deep into the defensive banking infrastructure.

“As the world closes down after the Covid-19 outbreak we believe that regional challengers can benefit from more locally-focused features and products.

“Lunar taps into the Nordic infrastructure and that will expectedly impact our future unit economics and differentiates us from horizontally expanding challenger banks.”

Established in 2015, Lunar has a customer base of 150,000 and employs 120 employees in the Nordic, with offices in Aarhus, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Oslo.
