In brief: Adyen takes on the United States
The Dutch payment platform Adyen has broken all records in Europe. At the end of 2020, the unicorn took the place of banks such as Société Générale and BBVA as one of the largest European market capitalizations in the Euro Stoxx 50.
Its excellent financial health was also confirmed last February after the publication of its annual results.
It was therefore necessary for the company to take up a new challenge, and to do so outside its European borders. The FinTech obtained a banking license in the United States.
This expansion in the U.S. is not the only internationalization commitment for Adyen, which also obtained approval from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to export its offer there, just before announcing that it was also setting up in the United Arab Emirates.
