Will Ferrell joins Lunar as shareholder and face of the company

Nordic challenger Lunar welcomes American actor and comedian Will Ferrell as a new shareholder in the unicorn company

Lunar, one of Europe’s fastest growing fintechs, announced that American actor and comedian Will Ferrell joined Lunar’s slate of investors.

Lunar is on a mission to give people the power back of their money and has the ambition to reach 1 million customers by 2023. Going forward, Will Ferrell will help to develop the public profile and brand of the company.

Today, 450,000 consumers and businesses have already joined Lunar’s digital-first banking and payments offering across Denmark, Sweden and Norway.

Will Ferrell said:

  • I am excited to take part in Lunar’s mission to give consumers and businesses more power from their money. By joining Lunar I am expanding my engagement in the Nordic countries, which is close to my heart. Nordic people are smart, sexy and are tired of having their money messed with. That’s where Lunar comes into play as a digital disrupter in the financial industry. Lunar is leading this change across borders.

In 2021 Lunar raised a €210m Series D led by Heartland, Kinnevik and Tencent. With a valuation of more than €1 billion, Lunar is one of Europe’s newly minted unicorn companies.

By joining forces with Will Ferrell, Lunar wants to make consumers and startups aware of how they can use technology to regain control of their finances when they save, spend and grow their money or business.

Ken Villum Klausen, founder and CEO of Lunar, said:

  • It’s absolutely thrilling to welcome Will Ferrell  to Lunar. Our shareholders and employees can’t wait to build our brand together. Our customers can expect more empowering products and features in their app and will see money management explained in a new way.
