“The decision to expand to Spain continues our strategy for growth and support into areas that are leading the financial services industry,” said Krik Gunning, CEO of Fourthline. “The city of Barcelona appeals to many international professionals active in the fintech sector; hiring the most qualified analysts will facilitate the company’s growth.”

Since releasing its KYC product in 2017, Fourthline has grown its client base into 15 countries around the world and tripled the size of its workforce. With record year-over-year growth and the application of its KYC solution towards broader user cases with N26, ING, and Allianz, Fourthline continues to expand into new markets.

The Barcelona-based team, led by Robin Gunning, is set on replicating Fourthline’s business success across the continent and continuing Fourthline’s diverse business culture. Since the beginning of January, Fourthline has recruited 100 qualified analysts, finished their onboarding process, and moved the Barcelona team into a new and spacious office, located at the Carrer de Tarragona. By opening this office in Barcelona, Fourthline taps into a new pool of talent and bolsters the diverse company culture that characterizes Fourthline: the 100 newly recruited analysts represent 50+ nationalities.
