移动银行Varo Money获4500万美元B轮融资

总部位于美国加州旧金山的移动银行金融科技初创公司Varo Money宣布获得了一笔4500万美元B轮融资,联合领投方为美国华平投资集团和The Rise Fund,参投方为私募股权公司TPG。截至目前,该公司的融资总金额为7840万美元。

Varo Money成立于2015年,创始人ColinWals曾在美国运通和富国银行等机构从事了多年金融工作,他的团队人员也都来自于金融行业以及苹果、Facebook、Instagram等知名科技巨头公司。作为一家以用户为中心的移动银行创企,他们致力于让用户具有更大的管理个人金融生活的能力。用户可以通过VaroMoney,实现多个银行不同种类账户信息的聚合,并且可以享受实时在线的花销分析与预算制定。此外,该公司还推出了借记卡、储蓄、借贷等产品,并且推出了一个人工智能助手“Val”,指导用户如何便捷地使用金融服务和购买金融产品。据悉,Varo公司的主要受众是“千禧一代”年轻人,而他们的优势就在于便捷性,所以能够更轻松地俘获年轻用户。

Varo Money, a digital challenger bank, has closed a $45 million Series B funding round led by existing investor Warburg Pincus and The Rise Fund, a global impact fund led by private equity firm TPG. Varo said that 30 other investors participated in the round including angels, existing investors and management. The funding will be used to further the growth of Varo’s banking app. To date, Varo will have raised over $78 million in less than two years – to execute on its vision of what the future of banking will be.

Colin Walsh, co-founder and CEO of Varo Money, said he founded Varo because customers deserve better banking options than the existing group of traditional banks.

Varo was founded by financial and tech veterans. Team members include talent from many well known brands including Amazon, American Express, Apple, Charles Schwab, Citi, Google, Instagram, Lending Club, Lyft, McKinsey, TaskRabbit, Visa, and Wells Fargo.

Varo’s mobile first approach seeks to provide customers with a frictionless bank account that integrates banking, saving and lending products with tools to help customers smooth cash flow and build savings. Varo says it has eliminated the unfriendly fees that traditional banks often charge, such as overdraft fees, minimum balance fees and foreign transaction fees. Importantly, Varo does not charge ATM fees at a network of over 55,000 Allpoint ATMs worldwide.
