法国BPCE银行收购大势金融科技挑战者Fidor

推进其欧洲数字化战略,法国第四大银行BPCE将德国传统银行业颠覆者Fidor成功收入麾下。Fidor是欧洲最为热门的金融科技公司之一,目前在英国等数个国家均有业务。

Fidor在Anthemis Group等投资者支持下于2009年成立。BPCE已同意收购其股权,金额不详。

Fidor创始人兼首席执行官Matthias Kroener将继续掌舵并保留其股份。

Kroener表示:"此次收购可使Fidor继续拓展国际业务,并推动我公司在数字技术上的发展更进一步。"

"世界波动性加剧,成为一个强大组织的一员十分重要。本次收购将极大提升我公司整体财务可持续性。而BPCE意识到对银行与创新采取创业途径的必要性,"

BPCE主席Francois Perol表示:"收购交易是BPCE集团加速数字化转型的关键一步。"

"此举进一步展示了我集团致力于创新、着力借助数字银行技术开发以客户为中心的方法且决心更深入数字与移动银行领域。我们非常自豪也非常高兴能接纳Fidor团队、集体与客户。"

Fidor将采取新的运营模式,将其银行业务与白标服务母公司分离。该母公司将独立于BPCE运作。

银行越来越注意到金融科技公司的发展及其颠覆传动银行业的潜力。去年,西班牙BBVA集团出资4500英镑购买英国数字银行Atom近30%的股份。

BPCE期待通过创新实现自身数字化发展,比如推出移动支付应用,使用户仅发一条推特就能进行转账。

France's fourth largest bank has gobbled up a fintech startup that specialises in digital banking.

BPCE has acquired German challenger Fidor to push forward its digital strategy across Europe. Fidor, named one of Europe's hottest fintech companies, currently operates in several countries including the UK.

Founded in 2009 and with investment from Anthemis Group among others, BPCE has agreed to acquire their equity stakes in the business for an undisclosed sum.

Founder and chief executive Matthias Kroener will continue to lead the business and will retain his shareholding.

"This move will allow Fidor to continue its international expansion and drive the development of our innovative digital technology even further," said Kroener.

"In a world of increasing volatility, it is important to be member of a strong group and this transaction is strongly improving our overall financial sustainability. We are excited to have such a well-established partner as BPCE in the financial world that recognises the need for an entrepreneurial approach to banking and innovation.”

BPCE chairman Francois Perol said: “This operation constitutes a key step in the acceleration of the digital transformation of our group."

"It further demonstrates our commitment to innovation, to developing a customer centric approach enabled by digital banking technology, and to be more involved in the digital and mobile banking field. We are very proud and happy to welcome Fidor’s teams, communities and clients into BPCE.”

Fidor will operate under a new structure, separating its own banking business from its white label service under a parent company that will operate independently from BPCE.

Banks are increasingly taking note of the growth of fintech firms and their potential disruption to the traditional banking business. UK challenger bank Atom landed £45m from Spanish bank BBVA for a near-30 per cent stake in the bank last year.

BPCE has looked toward digital development itself with innovations such as a mobile payment app and letting users transfer cash via just a tweet.
