Nuvei Corporation (“Nuvei” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: NVEI) (TSX: NVEI) is a Canadian financial technology firm that announced today that Hollywood actor, director, and entrepreneur Ryan Reynolds has invested in the company.
Reynolds, a well-known serial entrepreneur and investor in high-growth companies, said of the news, “I know about as much about fintech as I did about gin or mobile a few years ago.” Nuvei, though, is quite remarkable. It’s about time a Canadian company received the same level of attention as American tech companies due to the exceptional intelligence and dedication of the company’s leadership.
Less than a month has passed since it was disclosed that Reynolds had invested in Mint Mobile, a low-cost wireless service that had been acquired by T-Mobile US Inc. for USD $1.35bn. American Aviation Gin and Wrexham Football Club are two of Reynolds’ other prominent enterprises.

With the addition of Paya’s expertise and technology, Nuvei has become the industry leader in payment processing for B2B, Integrated Payments, and Global eCommerce.
Nuvei is constantly growing both domestically and internationally as it finds new applications for its technology. Recent launches of local acquisition capabilities in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia are just a few of the steps the company has taken to expand its market position in Latin America and Asia, and the Pacific.
Chief Executive Officer and Chair of the Board of Nuvei, Phil Fayer, commented on the news, saying, “We’re thrilled to welcome Ryan to the Nuvei family.” It is an honor to have one of the most well-known Canadians and an entrepreneur with such a stellar reputation for business acumen as an investor in our rapidly expanding worldwide company.
