Ebury Opens office in Brussels, second in Benelux

Ebury, one of the fastest growing fintechs for corporate global transaction services, has announced the opening of a second office in the Benelux region. Following the success of Ebury’s office in The Netherlands, Ebury is expanding its regional growth and has chosen Brussels as a second location in the region. The new office is located in the city centre at Boulevard du Régent 37/Regentlaan 37.

Ebury Brussels has a staff of 20 and is planning to double the team by the end of next year, in order to serve its clients in the most strategically important location in Europe. Ebury will support corporates with innovative international financial solutions such as trade finance, FX and risk management.

Furthermore, Ebury Partners Belgium NV obtained its license as a payment institution with the National Bank of Belgium (NBB), giving Ebury direct regulation in mainland Europe in addition to its UK license. The Brussels office takes the number of countries that Ebury has to twelve, with another two offices opening before the end of 2017, with ambitious expansion plans for 2018.

The Benelux team will be headed by Menne Mennes, Managing Director Benelux. “The Belgian team started working from Amsterdam and we quickly saw the demand for our services increasing in Belgium. As local presence is important to our customers, being in Belgium with a local license, we can now provide our clients with a more personal service”.
