在线资管平台Acorns开启新一轮1亿美元融资

据报道,数字财富管理初创公司Acorns Grow Inc.正在寻求超过1亿美元的融资。

彭博社表示,如果成功完成本轮融资,Acorns的公司估值有望突破7亿美元。

据知情人士透露,本轮融资的最后金额可能会发生变化,并将由一位主要的投资机构领投。虽然这位神秘投资方的身份还未对外透露,但目前市场已知包括PayPal Holdings Inc.和BlackRock Inc.等公司,以及像Kevin Durant和Ashton Kutcher这样的知名明星都已经对Acorns进行了投资。

Acorns总部位于加利福尼亚州,资产管理规模超过10亿美元,应用程序注册用户也达到400万人次。来自CB Insights的数据显示,不包括本次进行的融资,目前该公司已经获得的资金总额已经达到了1.59亿美元。

今年6月,Acorns新推出的奖励借记卡获得了1万个预购订单。据悉,使用该卡片的用户可以在特定零售商处购物时候获得奖励回扣,最高津贴比例为支付金额的10%。该公司表示,项目一期将发放10万张奖励借记卡,卡片已经于11月1日开始寄送。

此外,Acorns的小额投资和退休账户服务也内置于该卡中。

最后,该卡还提供一些优惠,例如移动支票存款、在线直接存款和支票寄送,以及免费的银行到银行转账以及全国各地ATM机的无限制免费或费用报销提款。

 

Through a reported funding round, digital wealth management startup Acorns Grow Inc. is said to be seeking over $100 million in funding. Such a round could potentially provide the company with a valuation of more than $700 million, Bloomberg reported.

The amount of the round could change, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg, and the round is led by a big investor. While the people did not disclose the backer’s identity, existing investors include companies such as PayPal Holdings Inc. and BlackRock Inc., along with well-known stars like Kevin Durant and Ashton Kutcher.

The company, which is based in California, has assets under management of over $1 billion, and the company’s app counts four million sign-ups. As it stands, CB Insights says the company has notched $159 million in funding. (The reported round was not included in their estimate.)

In June, it was reported that Acorns generated 10,000 pre-orders for its new rewards debit card. The card offers perks like investments into Acorns accounts when users make purchases with the card at select retailers. At first, 100,000 cards were set to be available, and cards were to be mailed by Nov. 1, it was reported at the time.

Acorns’ micro-investment and retirement account services are also built into the card, which will enable customers to get real-time round-ups on all purchases automatically deposited into their Acorns accounts. Customers of Acorns’ services will also be able to get up to 10 percent of each of their local merchant purchases deposited into their accounts.

The card also offers some benefits, such as mobile check deposit, digital direct deposit and check sending, as well as free bank-to-bank transfers and unlimited free or fee-reimbursed withdrawals from ATMs around the country.
