Beyond Bank斥资1500万入股P2P平台

近日澳大利亚P2P平台SocietyOne宣布,与总值48亿美元的客户自有金融机构Beyond Bank Australia达成合作合作。

Beyond Bank将斥资1500万美元购买SocietyOne股份,允诺的个人贷款投资总量也将达到1000万美元。Beyond Bank方面预计,这次投资将为该机构进入金融科技市场打下良好基础,该集团首席执行官Wayne Matters将这次合作定义为"创新、客户服务和新产品发行的绝佳组合"。

然而,这其实并不是SocietyOne第一次获得银行方面投资。早在2014年,Westpac Bank旗下风投机构Reinventure就曾向SocietyOne投资500万美元。Westpac也因此被认为是入股P2P组织的首家银行。

SocietyOne的在线平台利用其自主研发的ClearMatch技术,以风险定价为基础,将借款人与贷款人联系起来。ClearMatch允许投资人利用不同利率对某一个贷款项目进行竞价。

今年8月,SocietyOne宣布2016年累计个人贷款协助发放量已达3800万美元。自平台2013年成立以来,SocietyOne已经累计协助发放贷款1.5亿美元。今年4云,SocietyOne宣布任命新任首席执行官Jason Yetton、新任首席财务官Anna Harper。截至发稿,SocietyOne共从8位投资者手中融得资金5500万美元。

Australia-based P2P lender SocietyOne announced a new bank partner today. The company has teamed up with Beyond Bank Australia, a $4.8 billion customer-owned financial institution.

Beyond Bank has contributed $1.5 million for an equity stake in SocietyOne and has increased its funding commitment in personal loans on the site to $10 million. The bank anticipates the investment will expand its footing in the fintech sector; CEO Wayne Matters describes the partnership as a “perfect example of our approach to innovation, customer service and new product opportunities.”

This isn’t the first time SocietyOne has received funding from a bank. In 2014, the company received $5 million from Reinventure, a VC management funded by Westpac Bank. Westpac was believed to be the first bank to take an equity stake in a P2P lending organization.

SocietyOne’s online platform uses risk-based pricing to connect borrowers and investors to loans using its ClearMatch technology, which it launched at FinovateAsia 2012 (Finovate returns to Asia this year: Hong Kong on November 8). ClearMatch allows investors to bid together at different interest rates and amounts against a single loan.

In August, SocietyOne announced it had facilitated $38 million in personal loans in 2016. Since the company was founded in 2013, it has facilitated $150 million total. In April, SocietyOne announced it brought on a new CEO, Jason Yetton, and a new CFO, Anna Harper. The company has raised almost $55 million from 8 investors.
