Fintech upstart Happy Money has raised $70 million.

The Costa Mesa-based company helps members pay off debt, save money and consider ‘happy’ and ‘sad’ spending patterns.

The Series D round of funding will support the company’s growth and local hiring, Founder and Chief Executive Scott Saunders told the Business Journal.

Happy Money will move into a new office space at Tustin’s Flight creative office campus next year, allowing the company to grow to up to 600 employees. It now has about 280 people.
