UK-born financial technology (FinTech) company Centtrip, which works with over 500 international music artists – including over 150 Grammy and BRIT Award winners – has announced the launch of a new office in Amsterdam to oversee its expanding presence in mainland Europe.
The company, which provides intelligent treasury management services for the music and wider entertainment industries, claims to be the fastest growing fintech provider in the music business.
Since launching in 2016 the company’s suite of financial products and services has been used extensively for international tour management, festival financing royalty runs and a range of other activities.
Centtrip also offers an award-winning prepaid multi-currency Mastercard programme, and an online treasury management platform with real-time reporting and reconciliation.
“With our business growing exponentially Amsterdam was the natural choice for our new mainland Europe hub.”
Simon Liddell, Centtrip
The company facilitated its first major world tour in 2017 with Robbie Williams in conjunction with international artist management company ie:music.
Having cemented its reputation in the music and marine sectors, Centtrip has more recently expanded more widely into film, sport and media.
Simon Liddell, Director of Music, Film and Entertainment at Centtrip said, “With our business growing exponentially Amsterdam was the natural choice for our new mainland Europe hub. The city, which has a fantastic musical heritage, is one of the key gateways to Europe and is fast becoming a key centre for technology alongside being a leading economy for innovation.”
Freerk Ten Hoor, Regional Business Development Director at Centtrip said, “The Netherlands is famous for its music scene and Centtrip is a great fit for it.
“We already have an established Dutch client base and look forward to building on this success to grow our reach in the region and beyond.”Music Business Worldwide
