日本三菱日联金融公司设立1.85亿美元金融科技风投基金

近日,日本三菱日联金融公司(MUFG)宣布推出一个总额1.85亿美元的风险投资基金,专门投资金融科技创新企业。

MUFG表示,虽然集团此前几年也曾先后投资了多家金融科技创企,但是要想适应快速的市场变化、更好地拥抱产业创新,就必须构建一个更大、更复杂、协调性更强的投资网络。

为此,MUFG专门构建了这个名为MUFG Innovation Partners的投资团队,由专门的风投和产业专家负责相关投资事宜。

MUFG强调,它不仅希望向这些潜力无限的公司注入资金,而且还会为其提供相应的专业知识和全球产业网络资源。

按照日本银行法案有关“专业子公司投资”的说明,MUFG可以购买的金融科技创企股份将超过5%。

 

Japan's Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group (MUFG) has set up a $185 million venture capital fund to invest in fintech startups.

The financial services giant says that, while it has made a series of separate strategic investments in fintech startups over the last few years, it now needs a "larger, collaborative and more sophisticated framework" to help it adapt itself to "rapid marketplace changes and enhance open innovation".

The firm has put together a team of VCs and other experts with a history of working with, and investing in, Japanese and global startups to run MUFG Innovation Partners.

MUFG stresses that it not only wants to pump money into promising firms, but also provide access to its expertise and global network.

The new unit plans to take advantage of the "Investment Specialised Subsidiary" status under the Japanese Banking Act to enable it to buy more than five per cent stakes in some fintechs.
