In 2013, Dev Subrata, Andrei Popescu, and Subrata Dev established Fidel as a fintech company that operates worldwide with its headquarters situated in London, United Kingdom. The aim of the company is to simplify how businesses gain access and use financial data by using APIs.

Despite this setback, the company immediately addressed the issue and instituted preventative actions to mitigate similar setbacks from happening again in the future.
Expanding its product range and building partnerships with major players in the financial industry are among Fidel’s future plans. Moreover, the company is exploring options to extend into novel markets and regions, thereby reaching out to a greater number of customers worldwide.
