巴西数字银行Neon获BBVA投资

本周,BBVA旗下独立资本投资公司Propel Venture PArtners对巴西新兴数字银行Neon进行了投资。

本轮投资总额供给2200万美元,除Propel外,参与本次投资的还有Monashees、Quona Capital、Omidyar Network、Tera和Yellow Ventures。

Neon成立于2016年7月。据该公司透露,目前平台共拥有60多万客户,并在年底前努力争取达到100万。

Neon首席执行官Pedro Conrade表示,本轮投资将支持该公司进行进一步的产品扩张、技术投资和创新。

目前,Neon已经推出了信用卡服务,未来几个月还计划推出商业银行账户服务和投资服务。

据了解,此前BBVA已经在数字银行领域进行了多次投资,比如英国的Atom银行、美国的Simple银行、德国的solarisBank、芬兰的Holvi和BBVA内部孵化项目Denizen都曾获得过该机构的投资。

BBVA’s independent capital venture firm, Propel Venture Partners, has made an investment in Brazilian neo-bank Neon.

Propel joined Monashees, Quona Capital, Omidyar Network, Tera, and Yellow Ventures, in the $22 million raise for the two-year old smartphone banking startup.

Launched in July 2016, Neon now claims more than 600,000 customers and is striving to reach one million customers by year's end.

Pedro Conrade, Neon’s CEO, says that the Series A investment will support the company’s product expansion,investment in technology,and innovation.

“We have just launched our credit card, and will have some exciting news to share later in the year about additional products and services in the pipeline," he says. "This funding shows the investors’ confidence in our team, the market opportunity, and in our mission. It will allow us to keep moving at a fast pace while cultivating the creativity and technology to build a leading financial services company in Brazil.”

He adds that the company is also planning to expand into business banking account services and investing options over the coming months.

Neon adds to the roster of digital-only banks supported by BBVA funding across the world, including the UK's Atom Bank, Simple in the US, German-based solarisBank, Finland's Holvi and the inhouse incubated Denizen.
