Kemp Little has advised fintech client gohenry, a global leader in building healthy financial habits for kids, on a $40m financing round that will see it accelerate expansion of its combined fintech and edtech solution across the US (where the company launched in 2018) and boost growth in the UK.

gohenry has built a community of more than 1.2 million parents and children who are invested in learning the vital skill of being good with money.

The round was led by US growth-equity firm Edison Partners with investment from Gaia Capital Partners, Citi Ventures, and Muse Capital. Chris Sugden, Managing Partner at Edison Partners will join gohenry’s board of directors as part of the deal along with Dawn Zier, an accomplished CEO and marketing expert, best-known for engineering the transformation and growth of Nutrisystem, Inc as a publicly traded company in the US.

Kemp Little was delighted to work with gohenry again, having supported gohenry on previous fundraisings and corporate and commercial matters, and to help gohenry navigate the complex process of agreeing funding terms with new VC and strategic investors. The Kemp Little team was led by Corporate partner Charles Claisse, with support from Corporate senior associate Patrick Roux and Corporate associate Hannah Cordwell.
