携手传统金融机构,在线汽车经销商Auto1进军金融科技市场

上周,德国在线汽车经销商Auto1集团股份有限公司宣布携手德意志银行与安联保险集团,正式扩展为金融科技公司,为购买二手车的客户提供融资服务。

Auto1联席首席执行官Hakan Koc在接受采访时表示,这三家公司共同持股Auto1 Fintech50%以上,购买软银支持的Auto1车辆的经销商将获得Auto1 Fintech提供的再融资贷款和保险产品。

Auto1是一家二手车在线交易平台,从个人购买车辆并将其销售给经销商。 Koc表示,这些经销商将能够立即为在线采购再融资,而无需纸质流程。这么做的目的就是希望刺激客户购买,效果类似于PayPal的"立即购买"有助于提升eBay市场交易量。据悉,Auto1 Fintech已经开始在德国运营,今年晚些时候业务将扩展到波兰和法国。

Auto1正在努力成为领先的互联网二手车平台,上述举措正是Auto1推动产品多样化并激发客户忠诚度举措的一部分。软银旗下的Vision Fund今年早些时候向Auto1投资4.6亿欧元(约合5.4亿美元),Auto1目前估值约为29亿欧元。

Auto1 Group GmbH is partnering with Deutsche Bank AG and Allianz SE as the German startup expands into fintech to ease financing for customers buying its used cars.

The three partners together own more than 50 percent in a new company called Auto1 Fintech, that will offer refinancing loans and insurance products to car dealerships buying SoftBank Group Corp.-backed Auto1’s vehicles, co-Chief Executive Officer Hakan Koc said Wednesday in an interview.

Auto1 acts as an online exchange for used cars, buying vehicles from individuals and selling them to dealerships. Those dealerships will be able to instantly refinance their purchases online instead of using a paper-based process that can tie up their equity for two to three weeks, Koc said. The hope is that Auto1’s customers will buy more -- much like PayPal’s instant purchase helped boost transaction volumes on EBay Inc.’s marketplace.

“We are freeing capital and our customers are more liquid as a result,” Koc said by telephone. “It’s win-win.” Auto1 Fintech has already started in Germany and will expand to Poland and France later this year, Koc said.

The move is part of Auto1’s push to diversify its offerings and encourage customer loyalty as it seeks to become the dominant Internet platform for used automobiles. SoftBank’s Vision Fund invested 460 million euros ($540 million) in Auto1 earlier this year, valuing the Berlin-based company at about 2.9 billion euros.
