新加坡贷款创企Helicap获500万美元Pre-A融资

本周,总部位于新加坡的替代贷款创业公司Helicap宣布在Pre-A融资中获得500万美元投资,由East Ventures和Soilbuild Group Holdings领投。

而就在四个月前,Helicap刚刚完成了150万美元的种子轮融资,由新加坡议员、前人力部长Teo Ser Luck领投。

Helicap表示,它将利用这笔投资聘请技术和数据人才,并扩大其在印度尼西亚、越南和菲律宾的业务。此外,Helicap还将投资改进信用评分和尽职调查工具来提高其风险管理能力。

简单来说,Helicap的作用就好像是一个中间人,帮助大型投资者(如家庭办公室、养老基金和保险公司)投资本地区技术性P2P平台提供的中小型贷款。

截至目前,Helicap已经审查了东南亚和澳大利亚的近300个P2P借贷平台。自2018年第二季度推出以来,其贷款账户环比增长了50%以上,并已向超过10万名个人贷款人和小企业提供资金。该创业公司声称已经获得了“两位数的回报”,并估计其贷款总量将在今年年底达到2亿美元。

对于本次合作,Helicap联合创始人兼首席执行官David Z. Wang表示:

“我们决定与East Ventures合作进行印尼扩张,因为他们是那里最早和最成熟的风险投资公司之一。此外,Soilbuild的贡献对于我们的投资组合多样化至关重要,因为他们在房地产投资信托[REIT]上市公司部门拥有深厚的专业知识。”

Singapore-based alternative lending startup Helicap has raised US$5 million in a pre-series A round led by East Ventures and property firm Soilbuild Group Holdings.

The fresh funding comes just four months after the company closed a US$1.5 million seed round led by Singapore member of parliament and former manpower minister Teo Ser Luck.

Helicap said it will use the investment to hire tech and data talent and expand its presence in Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Philippines. Some of the capital will also go towards boosting its risk management abilities through improved credit scoring and due diligence tools.

The startup acts as a middleman, helping large-scale investors – such as family offices, pension funds, and insurance companies – invest in the small-to-mid-sized loans offered through the region’s growing number of tech-driven, peer-to-peer (P2P) lending platforms.

Helicap now has now vetted close to 300 P2P lending platforms across Southeast Asia and Australasia. Since launching in Q2 2018, its loan book has grown by more than 50 percent month-on-month, and it has deployed funding to over 100,000 individual loanees and and small businesses. The startup claims to have hit “double-digit returns” and estimates that its loans pipeline is on course to reach US$200 million by the end of this year.

“We decided to work with East Ventures for our Indonesian expansion, as they are one of the earliest and most established venture capital players there,” said co-founder and CEO David Z. Wang. “Also, Soilbuild’s contribution is pivotal in diversifying our portfolio, particularly as they have deep expertise in the real estate investment trust [REIT] listed company segment.”
