BENGALURU: Digital payments company PayU has acquired a minority stake in wealth tech startup Fisdom, by leading a $11-million (Rs 78 crore) funding round, along with existing investors Saama Capital and Quona Capital. While PayU has pumped in $5 million, the existing investors have invested $3.5 million and the rest has come from other venture capital funds.

Through this move, PayU is entering wealth and investments technology as it seeks to move beyond digital payments into broader financial services.
