数字银行创企Revolut进军新加坡与日本市场

本周,著名数字银行创企Revolut宣布已经获得日本与新加坡监管机构授权,将通过与当地银行合作进军亚太市场。

据了解,上述两国业务将最早于明年第一季度推出,目前已经有超过5万名用户进行了提前预约。

此前,Revolut本计划先登陆美国市场,并在今年4月成功融资2.5亿美元。但是在同时拓展其他市场的情况下,这种策略可能成本过高,所以Revolut决定暂缓美国市场拓展计划。

据消息人士透露,本月早些时候Revolut正就5亿美元融资计划与日本大型投资者软银(Softbank)进行洽谈,预计最早明年年初达成协议。

 

Fintech startup Revolut has received authorisation from regulators in Japan and Singapore, operating under a licence similar to its UK business through partnerships with local banks.

The banking app hopes to launch in the Asia Pacific region in the first quarter of next year, with over 50,000 users already on its waiting list.

The news comes as Revolut has been expanding aggressively throughout 2018, both in terms of its products and its geographical reach.

A spokesperson for Revolut said its services would go live in Japan and Singapore ahead of a long-promised launch in the US, which was initially scheduled to happen earlier this year.

The price of doing business in the US comes at a high cost, however, particularly when launching elsewhere at the same time. The startup raised $250m (£195.2m) in April from a range of investors to fuel such expansion, and sources told City A.M. earlier this month that Revolut is in talks to raise a further $500m from Japanese mega-investor Softbank, in a deal set to close early next year.

“We’ve been working closely with the Singapore regulator to shape the future regulatory environment of the country,” Revolut co-founder and chief executive Nikolay Storonsky said today.

“We’re confident that we’ll disrupt the way banks traditionally function across [the Asian Pacific region] through our use of technology and innovation.”
