不久前，Wealthfront刚刚获得了由Tiger Global Management领投的7500万美元E轮投资。而创业公司MoneyLion也在B轮融资中成功斩获4200万美元。
Wealthfront and MoneyLion are starting off 2018 with a bang.
Robo advice giant Wealthfront has raised $75m in a Series E fundraising round led by Tiger Global Management as it targets the millennial generation, whilst startup MoneyLion has brought home $42m in Series B funding.
Wealthfront is a software-based wealth management firm from California, offering a “low-cost and freemium model” for first time investors and recent expansion into other areas, such as financial planning and credit services.
The robo advisor doubled its assets under management (AUM) to over $9bn in 2017. This latest raise lends even more weight to the idea that Wealthfront will be heading towards an IPO in the near future.
Additionally, MoneyLion has now brought its total fundraising amount to $67m after its recent raise, led by growth equity investment firm Edison Partners.
MoneyLion aims its services at financially underserved middle class consumers, offering a variety of products from personal loans to robo advisory wealth management from inside its mobile app. The company has now originated over 250,000 loans to a total of 1.5m users.
"By delivering both a liability and wealth management digital solution on the same platform, MoneyLion brings a complete financial toolkit for consumers who earn less than $100,000.”
