Prime Minister-designate Naftali Bennett is expected to make a cool $5 million from his investment in American fintech firm Payoneer, Forbes Israel reports.

Bennett, a former tech executive, invested several hundred thousand dollars in the company before entering politics, according to Forbes.

Payoneer, which facilitates cross-border payments, is set to list on the Nasdaq stock exchange with a $3.3 billion valuation after reaching a SPAC merger with FTAC Olympus Acquisition Corp in February.
