东南亚金融科技并购平台Tryb获3000万美元融资

本周,新加坡金融科技服务平台Tryb Group宣布获得3000万美元投资。

这笔投资来自Makara与新加坡知识产权局(IPOS)7.7亿美元的联合基金,该基金专注于在科技和创业领域寻找有价值的知识产权。 据悉,目前Tryb正在和其他一系列投资者洽谈,希望本轮融资再新增2000万美元额外资本。

Tryb专注于东南亚的金融科技,但与该地区的大多数创业公司不同,它通过收购有前途的业务并通过收购收购其他公司完成运转。从早起来看,Tryb更像是一家风投公司。

据了解,东南亚地区共有约6亿消费者。Tryb希望像LendingClub一样,推动本地区金融服务与银行业的数字革新。

该公司的另一个主要焦点是在资本市场。该公司负责人表示,东南亚以外地区对东南亚地区的投资兴趣正日渐高涨。

目前,Tryb业务并无直接盈利,不过它仍然持有一些创企的股份 ,其中就包括即将在新加坡上市的MC Payment。此外,Tryb未来几个月还将完成两笔收购,而被收购企业已经成立多年,一旦收购成功就会为Tryb带来可观收入。

Tryb Group, a Singapore-based organization focused on fintech services in Southeast Asia, has landed a $30 million investment from Makara Capital.

The investment comes from Makara’s $770 million joint fund with the Intellectual Property Office of Singapore (IPOS), which is focused on finding valuable IP in the tech and startup space. TechCrunch understands that Tryb is talking to a range of other investors with a view to closing the round with at least $20 million in additional capital.

Tryb is focused on fintech in Southeast Asia, but, unlike most startups in the region, it operates like an umbrella company by taking stakes in promising businesses and buying up others via acquisitions. The firm started out acting as a VC, but Tryb CEO Markus Gnirck explained to TechCrunch that it decided to actively play in the space and thus it switched modes to become an enabler or collector of businesses.

For a Western comparison, Tryb aspires to be like LendingClub with a focus on digitizing the predominantly analogue systems of financial services and banking in Southeast Asia, a region of over 600 million consumers.

The company’s other major focus is in capital markets, where Gnirck said he sees increasing interest in Southeast Asia from outside of the region.

Currently, the Tryb business doesn’t make direct revenue. It holds stakes in a number of business — including MC Payment which is in the process of going public in Singapore — but Gnirck said it has two acquisitions that he expects to finalize in the coming months. These companies, which are both in the enterprise space and are established for a number of years, will bring revenue to the group once acquired, he explained.
