伦敦通勤分期创企CommuterClub再获230万英镑注资

本周,伦敦通勤分期创企CommuterClub宣布再获230万英镑注资,印度金融服务公司WGC领投。据了解,WGC此前还投资过Zopa和Neyber等多家金融科技创企。

CommuterClub之前的投资者也参与了本轮融资,其中包括Worldpay首席执行官Peter Jackson、伦敦证交所前任负责人Gavin Casey、著名网球运动员穆雷及巴克莱科技之星项目负责人Chris Adelsbach等人。

CommuterClub成立于三年前。用户可以通过CommuterClub购买年票或旅行卡,然后按月分期支付票款。截至目前,CommuterClub已累计为1万多名通勤用户发放了3000万英镑此类贷款,累计为用户节约资金250万英镑。

此外,CommuterClub还计划与另外一家数字银行Revolut合作为用户提供履行金融服务产品。

麦肯锡前任咨询师Plachkiv表示:

"伦敦等大城市的交通费用不菲,而如今居然仍有大概95%的人选择在线下售票窗口购买季票/年票。这种繁杂的售票方式亟待解决,而CommuterClub恰好为我们提供了一个可行的分期解决方案。"

A startup which provides financing for commuters to buy rail travel cards has landed a fresh injection of cash, City A.M. can exclusively reveal.

The £2.3 for CommuterClub was led by Indian financial services firm Wadhawan Global Capital (WGC), an investor in Zopa and Goldman Sachs-backed fintech startup Neyber, with previous investors also participating.

That includes Worldpay and soon-to-be Paddy Power Betfair chief executive Peter Jackson. Gavin Casey, a former boss of the London Stock Exchange, the head of Barclays Techstars Chris Adelsbach and tennis star Andy Murray.

The three-year-old startup, which has provided loans worth more than £30m to more than 10,000 commuters, is also returning to Seedrs to raise cash that will push the total up to £2.5m.

Commuters can use CommuterClub to get a yearly season ticket or travelcard but pay on a monthly basis as a digital subscription. It claims to have saved them more than £3m to date.

The startup, founded by Petko Plachkov and Imran Gulamhuseinwala, also the head of fintech at EY, has also partnered with fellow fintech Revolut. The digital challenger bank will offer travel financing to its customers.

“Commuting in London and big cities is exorbitantly expensive and this new fundraising campaign will allow us to grow and offer our simple and transparent instalment plan to consumers in the UK and overseas," said Plachkiv, a former consultant at McKinsey.

“This industry is ripe for further disruption. It seems unbelievable that 95 per cent of people still buy their season ticket offline. Consumers deserve more.”
