英国数字银行Monese获得6000万美元风险投资

本周三,英国新兴数字银行Monese宣布获得6000万美元风险投资。

本次投资由数字业务全球投资者Kinnevik领投,PayPal、Augmentum Fintech和国际航空集团参投。Monese原有投资者INVC基金也参与了本次投资。

自成立以来,Monese一路发展迅速。目前,该平台累计用户已达60万人次,每年交易规模超过25亿美元,团队人数也从最开始的36人增加到了如今的140多人。

Monese平台的主要宗旨是帮助那些难以在本国之外开设传统银行账户的移民和外籍人士。随着平台不断发展,那些对传统银行业务不大满意的消费者也成了Monese努力发展的新目标用户。

Monese表示,本次投资将主要用于开发下一代的移动银行业务产品,争取为抢占更多英国以外的国际市场份额。

根据公司博客文章,Monese表示,这笔资金将用于继续开发下一代移动银行服务,并将其提供给全球更多人。

 

Monese, the U.K. bank challenger, announced on Wednesday (Sept. 6) that it has secured $60 million in venture funding.

According to a company blog post, Monese said the funding will be used to continue to develop the next generation of its mobile banking service and make it available to more people around the globe.

According to the company, the Series B round was led by Kinnevik, a global investor focused on digital businesses, with participation from PayPal, European investor Augmentum Fintech and International Airlines Group for its Avios Group. Existing investors also participated in the fundraising, including Investec’s INVC Fund. Monese said in the blog post that in the U.K., the adoption rate has exceeded expectations.

“Now, Europe is embracing the Monese product even faster than the U.K. market. We see this as a vindication of our original mission statement – and a validation of our approach in addressing the inefficiencies and limitations inherent to the current banking system,” the company wrote in the blog post, noting that its services have close to 600,000 users moving more than $2.5 billion a year. What’s more, Monese said the number of new monthly customers has been tripling since the end of last year, with strong growth continuing.

As a result of the growth and the funding, Monese said it is increasing the size of its business and accelerating expansion internationally. “At the beginning of 2017, we were a team of 36. Since then, that team has quadrupled to a company that’s now more than 140 people strong. Additional funding means we’ll be able to continue hiring the brightest and best, and expand our mission to make global banking accessible to everyone,” the company wrote.

Monese was launched to help immigrants and expats who would have a tough time opening a traditional bank account outside of their home country, but is now going after consumers who aren’t happy with the service they are receiving from traditional banks that offer so-called free banking accounts.
