一年前，巴克莱集团前任首席执行官Antony Jenkins创立了一家名为10x Future Technologies的金融科技创企。这个云端平台可以为企业需求方提供灵活的技术服务，将分散的传统银行系统连接起来，对客户数据进行更好地分析，进而设计出更加负责的金融产品。
本次融资由中国平安集团领投，咨询公司Oliver Wyman跟投。除资金投入外，平安与Oliver Wyman同时宣布将于10x建立合作伙伴关系，帮助平台将其技术推广到银行系统（特别是亚洲地区）。
Former Barclays chief executive Antony Jenkins has raised ￡34 million in a funding round led by Chinese insurer Ping An to help bring his new fintech startup to Asia, according to the Financial Times.
Consulting firm Oliver Wyman has also joined the round for 10x Future Technologies, which Jenkins founded last year, offering a cloud-based plug-and-play platform that promises to knit together the disparate legacy systems of incumbent banks to provide new insights on customer data and more responsive products.
In addition to putting in money, Ping An and Oliver Wyman have both committed to partnerships with 10x, helping the firm bring its technology to banks, particularly in Asia, says the FT.
Ousted from Barclays in July 2015, Jenkins has become a passionate advocate of the need for radical tech-driven change in traditional banking practices. He is using 10x technology to build a digital bank for Virgin Money in the UK.
