The business, which will launch in the first half of 2024, will be 75 percent-owned by HSBC and 25 percent-owned by B2B fintech Tradeshift.

HSBC invested $35 million in the supply chain outfit in August, following previous participation in a $250 million Series A round in 2018.

Mendonca says the new venture will be a fintech that develops technology which will be used by HSBC to embed its transaction banking solutions into Tradeshift and other fast-growing e-commerce and marketplace venues.

“I am delighted to be leading this exciting fintech venture, which reflects HSBC’s vision to help businesses grow as they increasingly operate across e-commerce platforms.," he says. "The JV’s technology will embed HSBC solutions into such venues so that customers can access financing when and where they need it.”
