Hailing from Portland, Oregon, Vesta recently raised $125 million in new growth capital from private equity firm Goldfinch Partners. The funding provides the company with the resources to invest in growth and continue the global deployment of its fraud protection and e-commerce payment solutions.

“We are excited to accelerate the execution of our strategy in APAC. The opportunity to partner with EDBI is exciting and this new investment really sets us up to go fast. Singapore is a natural spot from which to centralize our APAC operations. The combination of a dynamic business environment, first-class infrastructure and talent, and its central location for accessibility to the entire region, coupled with EDBI as our partner, made Singapore an easy choice,” said Ron Hynes, CEO of Vesta.
