金融创企Jirnexu获Experian领投1000万美元融资

近日,东南亚金融创企Jirnexu再获1000万美元融资,本轮融资由消费信贷巨头Experian领投,这也显示出Experian对亚洲金融科技创企的持续关注。

Jirnexu总部位于吉隆坡,主要在马来西亚和印度尼西亚等地经营金融比较服务。该公司会收集来自银行和金融服务公司的产品以及交易讯息,通过为用户提供充分有效的信息获取渠道,来吸引新的受众和客户。本轮融资是Jirnexu总额为1100万美元的B轮融资的后续跟进,该轮融资完成于今年5月份,由SBI领投,SBI也是本轮融资的另一个参投者。本轮融资过后,Jirnexu的融资总额已经达到2800万美元。

与此同时,本轮融资标志着Experian完成了在亚洲的第三笔金融科技领域投资。Experian总部位于伦敦,估值178亿英镑,约合226亿美元。在此之前,Experian曾投资过印度创企Bankbazaar和新加坡创企C88。

本轮融资除了资金支持之外,还包括两家公司的战略关系合作。Experian表示,Jirnexu的业务范畴能够帮助Experian“通过分析提高性能,提高资格匹配能力,以及带来更加顺畅的消费者体验”。

根据Experian亚太区首席执行官Ben Elliott今年早些时候发表的评论来看,未来Experian可能还会有更多同Experian的交易。

“早在五六年前,我们就开始考虑如何解决一些格局更大的问题,而不仅仅是做一个软件公司。 我们正在考虑那些我们认为在我们占有一席之地的市场中具有破坏性的创企,或那些正在构建我们认为可以与之共同发展的创企,“Elliot在7月的一次采访中如是说道。

谷歌最近的一份报告预测表示,到了2025年,东南亚的数字经济规模将翻两番,有望达到2400亿美。Experian也不是唯一一个热衷于进入该地区金融领域的行业巨头,Grab和Go-Jek正在建立自己的支付和金融服务,中国的腾讯和阿里巴巴也在积极投资该地区。就在上周,腾讯最终一锤定音,投资菲律宾创企Voyager大约2.15亿美元。

Consumer credit giant Experian  is continuing to back Asian fintech startups after it led a $10 million investment in Southeast Asia’s Jirnexu .

Jirnexu, which is headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, operates financial comparison services in Malaysia and Indonesia. Those services aggregate offerings and deals from banks and financial services companies, effectively acting as a user acquisition channel for reaching new audiences and customers. This round is a follow-on to Jirnexu’s $11 million Series B which closed in May and was led by SBI, which was the other investor in this extension. This new money takes the startup to $28 million from investors to date.

The deal marks the third investment in Asian fintech for Experian, which is based in London and valued at £17.8 billion, or $22.6 billion. The firm previously backed India’s Bankbazaar and Singapore-based C88.

As you’d expect, those deals include strategic relationships. In the case of Jirnexu, Experian said it would help with “improved performance in demand generation, better eligibility matching through analytics and more seamless consumer experiences.”

There may yet be more deals involving Experian based on comments from the firm’s Asia Pacific CEO, Ben Elliott, made earlier this year.

“Five or six years ago, we started to think about how we solve some bigger problems rather than just being a stoic software company. We’re looking at organizations that we think are either disruptive in the market where we have a role to play, or those that are building into something we think we can grow with,” Elliot told TechCrunch in an interview in July.

A recent Google report forecast that Southeast Asia’s digital economy will triple in size to reach $240 billion by 2025 and Experian is far from the only one keen to get into the future of finance in the region. Ride-hailing giants Grab and Go-Jek are building their own payment and financial services, while China’s Tencent and Alibaba are actively investing in the region, too. Just last week, for example, Tencent finalized a deal that sees it lead a $215 million investment in Voyager in the Philippines.
