Facebook宣布进军中小企业借贷市场

继进军支付市场后,Facebook在金融服务领域又有了新动作。

据英国《金融时报》10月26日报道,自今年2月起,Facebook已携手加拿大金融服务机构Clearbanc提供现金预支服务。这个项目名为"Chrged",Facebook商业用户可以将其Facebook Ads与Clearbanc连接起来,借此获得现金预支服务。

在预支资金偿还后,Clearbanc将会获得企业收入的一小部分,同时还会收取5%到10%的手续费用,具体额度根据企业财务状况而定。Clearbanc的债务资本主要来自London Life和Power Corp.等保险企业,当然也包括一些家族资本办公室和结构化信贷资金。

Clearbanc联合创始人、首席执行官Andrew D'Souza表示,目前已有1000家小企业试用了这项服务。从本月起,Facebook与Clearbanc将联手大举推广这个产品。

据了解,Facebook目前还未从此项服务中获得任何资金盈利,但是与小企业用户关系的密切化仍然有助于Facebook的整体发展。

目前,包括亚马逊和谷歌等多家科技巨头都在积极布局小企业借贷与金融服务领域,而Facebook此番与Clearbanc的合作也算是符合整个市场的发展潮流。

As Facebook continues to step into the world of payments, the company is officially moving deeper into financial services through a new partnership with Clearbanc.

According to news from The Financial Times on Thursday (Oct. 26) said Facebook is working with the Canada-based financial institution to provide cash advances to businesses. The partners have reportedly been working together since February, developing an initiative they dubbed “Chrged,” which enables Facebook business users to connect their Facebook Ads account to Clearbanc, which will then provide an offer, the publication explained.

Clearbanc then receives a part of revenues earned by the company until the cash advance is repaid, as well as a fee of between 5 and 1o percent, reports said, which added that the fee is set based on the business’ financial health.

Co-Founder and Chief Executive of Clearbanc Andrew D’Souza told the Financial Times that so far, 1,000 small businesses (SMBs) have trialed the service. Clearbanc and Facebook will now begin to more aggressively push out the service, he added.

Reports said Clearbanc’s debt capital is sourced from an array of insurance companies, like London Life and Power Corp, as well as family offices and structured credit funds. According to D’Souza, Facebook does not profit from the service but benefits from working more closely with its small business customers.

“At Facebook, we are in the business of helping small companies become large and local companies become global,” said Facebook Director, SMB, North America, Katherine Shappley in an interview with the publication. “The Chrged program by Clearbanc provides an exciting opportunity for businesses to access the resources they need to grow.”

Facebook’s entrance into small business financing comes at a time when more industry experts are beginning to look toward technology conglomerates like Amazon and Google to disrupt the SMB lending and finance space.
