小微投资平台Moneybox获1400万英镑融资

本周,小微投资应用平台Moneybox宣布获得1400万英镑B轮融资。本次融资由阿里巴巴与Eight Roads领投,现有投资者Oxford Capital Partners和Samos Investments跟投。

本次融资过后,Moneybox的累计融资额已经达到2130万英镑。据悉,Moneybox计划利用这笔资金进一步开拓新产品,将现有30名员工的队伍扩充到60人。

Moneybox是一款app,能够与用户的银行账户关联并自动进行支付、零钱投资。目前,投资的对象主要是用户的ISA账户,可供投资的基金分别来自Vanguard、Henderson和Blackrock。

用户还可以在Moneybox ISA中存入额外的存款,超过80%的Moneybox用户设置每周定存,15%使用其发薪日提升功能。

据了解,目前Moneybox的用户主要集中在伦敦地区。

Moneybox联合创始人Ben Stanway表示,该公司可能计划推出高级版Moneybox Plus服务,建立一个SIPP或养老金产品,丰富现有的财务规划产品类别。

该应用程序之前已与Stanway也创立的鲜花速递公司Bloom&Wild以及餐饮创业公司Gousto合作,每家公司在首次使用该服务时对该用户的帐户进行了一次性的15英镑投资。

本次融资是Eight Roads首次投资Moneybox。此前,Eight Roads再英国还投资过Made.com、Notonthehighstreet.com和Treatwell等多家创企。

 

Spare change investment app Moneybox today announced the close of a £14m series B fundraising round, led by Alibaba investor Eight Roads.

Existing investors Oxford Capital Partners and Samos Investments, among others, also participated.

The fresh funding takes Moneybox’s total amount raised to date to £21.3m. City A.M. understands that the money will be used to fund new products and to expand the team from 30 to 60 staff, all based within the startup’s London base on Southbank.

The Moneybox app connects to a user’s bank account and automatically rounds up their payments, investing the spare change into an ISA of their choice with three different risk appetites from funds run by Vanguard, Henderson and Blackrock.

Users can also make extra deposits into their Moneybox ISA, with more than 80 per cent of Moneybox users setting up weekly deposits and 15 per cent utilising its pay-day boost feature.

Over the next year, co-founder Ben Stanway told City A.M. that the startup will pursue building out a Sipp or pensions product, meatier financial planning tools and more brand deals via its premium Moneybox Plus service.

The app has previously teamed up with flower delivery company Bloom & Wild, which Stanway also founded, and meal-kit startup Gousto, whereby each company made a one-off £15 investment into the user’s account on their first time using the service.

The series B round is the first time that Eight Roads has invested in Moneybox, coming off the back of previous investments in the UK to the likes of Made.com, Notonthehighstreet.com and Treatwell.

The app now has more customers in London than any other part of the country, which Stanway believes is a real “heartland” for the company.
