计划筹资1.5亿美元,SoFi前副总设立金融科技风投平台Fin VC

据知情人透露,Social Finance(下称"SoFi")前副总兼风投负责人Logan Allin现阶段预备筹资1.5亿美元,对美国及亚欧地区(包括以色列)的金融科技公司进行早期金融投资。

知情人还表示,因性骚扰事件离职的SoFi前首席执行官Mike Cagney将在Fin Venture Capital(下称"Fin VC")担任高级顾问。Allin2017年加入SoFi后负责管理投资项目,并推出了一个内部融资项目,但Cagney离职后董事会便把这个项目搁置了。另外,SoFi前资产管理负责人Peter Early、T.Rowe Price前管理层Todd Ruppert都担任了Fin VC的顾问一职。目前,Allin作为该融资项目唯一的执行合伙人,也在寻找合适的合作伙伴。

此前,Fin VC拒绝回应筹资项目的细节问题。该公司在邮件中写道:"Fin作为一家位于旧金山的早期金融科技公司,我们面向的是全球市场。我们的使命是为早期科技金融公司提供所需资金,与他们成为亲密的合作伙伴。"

彭博社报道称,从SoFi离职后,Cagney为自己的新公司Figure成功融资5000万美元,该笔资金计划用于区块链分类账簿技术的应用。这一技术可以让本需花费几天时间的贷款申请流程在数分钟内完成。据一位知情人透露,Fin VC已准备投资Cagney的新公司Figure。

Fin VC的计划是投资SoFi、Affirm和Stripe这类发展有所下滑的顶级科技公司,选择的行业有不动产和保险相关技术、替换借贷平台。知情人最后还表示,Fin VC也可能会投资区块链技术应用,但是数字货币不在考虑范围内。

Social Finance Inc.’s former head of ventures and corporate development, Logan Allin, is raising a $150 million fund to invest in early stage financial technology firms in the U.S. and abroad, including Asia, Europe and Israel, according to people familiar with the matter.

Mike Cagney, the former SoFi chief executive officer who quit amid allegations of sexual harassment at the fintech firm, will serve as a senior adviser to the fund, called Fin Venture Capital, said the people, who asked not to be identified discussing the private matter. Allin joined SoFi in 2017 to spearhead investments and roll out an internal venture capital fund, a project that the board of directors shelved after Cagney left, the people said.

Other advisers include Peter Early, former general manager of SoFi’s asset management, and Todd Ruppert, a former executive at T.Rowe Price, the people said. Allin is currently the sole managing partner of the fund, which is looking to hire more partners.

Fin Venture Capital declined to comment on the details of the fundraising. "Fin is a globally focused and early stage Fintech firm based in San Francisco," the company said in an emailed statement. "The firm’s mission is to be the premier partner and capital provider for early stage fintech."

Bloomberg has reported that since leaving SoFi, Cagney has raised $50 million for his new company Figure, which plans to use blockchain ledger technology to help expedite loan approvals in minutes rather than days. Fin Venture Capital intends to invest in Cagney’s new company, according to a person familiar with the matter.

Fin Venture Capital plans to invest in companies that will spin out of top fintech firms, like SoFi, Affirm Inc. and Stripe Inc. and sectors like real-estate technology, insurance technology and alternative lending. The venture firm will also look for corporate blockchain applications, but not investments in cryptocurrencies, the people said.
