学生财务管理平台Loot获RBS投资

本周,苏格兰皇家银行(简称RBS)宣布对新兴银行业务平台Loot投资200万英镑。

据了解,本次投资其实通过Natwest的数字零售银行Bo完成的。去年7月,该机构还曾对Loot投资300万英镑,而本次投资结束后该机构对Loot的持股比例也增加了25%。

Loot于2014年成立,主要客户群体为学生和年轻一代用户。经过身份验证的客户会获得一个预付借记卡,以及定期的消费习惯分析,并可以通过该平台设置每日和每周预算。

除RBS外,包括Speedinvest、Global Founders Capital和Portage在内的多家机构也对Loot进行过投资。

据统计,目前Loot已获得注册用户超过17.5万人,对Monzo和Starling等新兴数字银行构成了不小的挑战。

 

The Royal Bank of Scotland has invested in digital current account aimed at students and young people that has set out to rival challenger banks Monzo and Starling.

The £2m investment in fintech startup Loot was made through Natwest’s digital-only retail bank Bo, which is due to launch this year, and takes its total shareholding to 25 per cent following an initial £3m investment in July last year.

Loot launched in 2014 to help students manage their finances and now has more than 175,000 sign-ups.

Verified customers are provided with a pre-paid debit card and are offered insights into their spending habits, with the option to set daily or weekly budgets.

Bo chief executive Mark Bailie said: “Loot is a really exciting brand and one that we’re proud to be associated with.

“Through its innovative use of technology and intention to change the status quo, it’s quickly built a following of loyal customers, with potential for rapid future growth.”

Other investors in Loot include Speedinvest, Global Founders Capital and Portage.
