Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Two of Yonder's founders moved to the UK from Australia and despite having a stable income and a mortgage back in Australia, struggled to access to high quality credit products. After realising this was the case for over 8.3m people in the UK, they wanted to make money rewarding and credit empowering; thus, Yonder was born.

The company promises to offer a modern rewards credit card with no foreign exchange fees, worldwide travel insurance, and more. The team has significant experience in this space, having worked for multiple years at ClearScore, one of the UK's largest consumer credit marketplaces. By prioritising the customer, not the bank, Yonder offer a highly appealing alternative to traditional credit card options.

The company's partnership with Ophelos, a tech firm building fairer debt resolution for businesses, is another step in the direction of the customer. Further, the company has secured significant additional funding to expand into new verticals and launch in new UK cities. As over 30 million people use a credit card just in the UK, Yonder's market potential is huge.
