The London-based challenger has also acquired a lender which helps consumers buy solar panels following reported backing from investors including Qatar Investment Authority.

Following the initial report on Reuters, in which the news agency cited ‘sources’, Tandem stated: “Tandem Bank can confirm that it has secured a significant fundraise, subject to regulatory approvals.

“Full details of the transactions will be available in due course. The new funding has been secured in partnership with both new and existing shareholders.”

Last month Tandem’s CTO Paul Clark left the company and was replaced by Chief Data Officer Noam Zeigerson.
