专属投资基金成金融科技投资新风潮

2018年伊始,金融科技融资呈现一片良好态势。其中,有三家企业更是准备为这一新兴行业“豪掷千金”。他们分别是:

BB&T

该公司刚刚宣布,将建立一个总额5000万美元的基金,专注投资和收购新兴金融科技公司,借此提高客户满意度和降低运营成本。作为BB&T数字业务转型的一部分,此前该公司已经开发了新的数字工具,并提高了安全性以保护客户账户。这个新的金融科技基金将进一步提升BB&T在该领域的影响力。

渣打银行

不久前,该银行刚刚建立了一个名为SC Ventures的新业务部门,专门用于投资新的金融科技企业并管理以前的投资。投资资金将来自2015年发起的三年投资30亿美元的基金。此前,渣打银行已经投资了分布式账本网络Ripple,并于2017年11月开发了一个新的跨境支付平台。

SBI控股

该公司计划筹集4.5亿美元用于人工智能(AI)和区块链基金。该基金将于本月开始投资,由其子公司SBI投资管理。基金在两个月内最初筹集了200亿日元(1.8亿美元),投资者包括50家国内和国际金融机构以及非金融公司。投资者也将使用金融科技的解决方案来帮助他们成长。 SBI此前于2015年12月推出了一项价值300亿日元(2.7亿美元)的金融科技基金,这是当时日本最大的金融科技基金。

Fintech funding came out of the gate with a strong start in 2018. And now, three big incumbents — US financial holdings company BB&T, UK bank Standard Chartered, and Japanese financial services company SBI Holdings — are adding fuel to this trend by launching new fintech funds.

BB&T

The company announced a $50 million fund that will invest in and acquire emerging fintech companies, with the aim of increasing customer satisfaction and lowering operating costs. As part of BB&T’s digital business transformation, it has already developed new digital tools and improved its security to protect client accounts. This new fintech fund will further contribute to BB&T’s overhaul.

Standard Chartered

The bank has introduced a new business unit, called SC Ventures, that will invest in new fintechs as well as manage previous investments. The money for investments will be taken from its three-year $3 billion fund launched in 2015, which is dedicated to investing in new technologies. Standard Chartered has already invested in the distributed ledger network Ripple, with which it developed a new cross-border payments platform in November 2017.

SBI Holdings

The company aims to raise $450 million for an artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain fund. The fund will start investing this month and be managed by its subsidiary, SBI Investment. An initial 20 billion yen ($180 million) was raised for the fund in two months and investors include 50 domestic and international financial institutions, as well as nonfinancial companies. Investors will also use the solutions of the fintechs to help them grow. SBI previously launched a fintech fund in December 2015, worth 30 billion yen ($270 million), which was the biggest fintech fund in Japan back then.
