CMS Bel­grade sup­ports Ger­man on­line bank N26
We, at CMS Bel­grade, ap­pre­ci­ate the op­por­tun­ity to sup­port start-ups with a strong vis­ion, such as re­tail neo­bank N26. CMS Bel­grade Man­aging Part­ner Ra­divo­je Pet­rikić, early re­cog­nised the po­ten­tial of N26 and with his team of loc­al part­ners Mar­ija Tešić and Maja Stepan­ović, and seni­or tax law­yer Ivana Blago­jević, sup­por­ted them with the ac­quis­i­tion of a Ser­bi­an fintech, thus en­abling fur­ther ex­pan­sion of N26 op­er­a­tions in glob­al mar­kets.   This fast-grow­ing neo­bank from Ger­many has an in­spir­ing motto: to be the first mo­bile bank the world loves to use! As it seems, they are liv­ing up to their motto, since N26 has already wel­comed more than 7 mil­lion cus­tom­ers in 25 mar­kets for only 6 years, and has just raised a USD 900 mil­lion Series E round at a USD 9 bil­lion valu­ation of the com­pany. In ad­di­tion to Cent­ral Europe op­er­a­tions, they are now eye­ing op­por­tun­it­ies in East Europe, and open­ing an of­fice in Ser­bia is an im­port­ant step in their plan.   We are look­ing for­ward to as­sist­ing the in­nov­at­ive mo­bile bank with achiev­ing their goal of be­com­ing one of the biggest re­tail banks in Europe.
