Since its founding in 2009, Ebury has grown to become one of the largest fintechs worldwide, providing foreign exchange solutions to SMEs. In 2019, Ebury acquired Frontierpay, a payroll payments provider that complicated an already complex fintech business. With 24 offices across North America, LATAM, Europe, Middle East, and Asia Pacific, the task of preparing financial models and consolidating P&Ls fell on two members of the finance team: Ana Muñoz, Head of Corporate Finance, and Maria Lapucci, Corporate Finance Manager. This process took approximately 11 days to complete.
