The financing was led by Sprott, an alternative asset manager and a global leader in precious metal and real asset investments with approximately $8 billion in assets under management.

Founded in the United Kingdom in 2016, Glint established the first app-based account in February 2018 giving clients in Europe a low-cost way to buy, sell, and save physically allocated gold and for the first time instantly spend it via the Glint Mastercard anywhere Mastercard is accepted. Glint Pay then added multiple currency wallets, including U.S. dollars, British pounds, and euros in July 2018. The company is working on its launch into the United States. ...
