U.K. fintech bank Zopa has raised nearly $36 million from a group of international investors, including Indian firm Wadhawan Global Capital and leading U.S. VC Bessemer Venture Partners, according to a blog post on the company's site.

Zopa combines multiple fintech verticals into one bank platform, offering peer-to-peer loans, savings accounts and credit cards.

"The additional investment will finance Zopa’s continued growth and product development, and support the build-out of our bank infrastructure in preparation for the submission of our bank [license] application later this year," said CEO Jaidev Janardana in the post.
