越南数字钱包创企Momo获大额C轮投资

本周,越南金融科技创企Momo宣布获得来自美国私募股权公司Warburg Pincus的C轮融资支持。

目前,具体投资规模并未对外公布。但Momo母公司M-Service首席执行官Pham Thanh Duc表示,这笔融资已经创下了该公司融资的又一记录。另有市场消息称,投资规模可能达到1亿美元,但Pham并对为此消息发表评论。

Momo是一家数字钱包提供商,提供数字支付、账单支付和移动充值等多种功能,服务涵盖日常生活、电影票、旅游等多个领域,在越南全国共有100,000个服务网点。

Pham表示,目前Momo公司正在研究信用评分系统,希望携手金融机构,帮助用户获得更多金融服务和产品。

目前,Momo已经与Facebook和谷歌进行了支付合作,而与苹果公司的谈判也正在进行之中。Pham表示,目前该公司的重点仍将集中在越南本地市场,暂无进军国际市场的规划。

近些年来,东南亚已经逐渐成长为另一个全球投资热点地区。包括阿里巴巴和腾讯等中国科技巨头都先后在越南投下重资。

去年,中国电商巨头京东集团对越南电子商务公司Tiki投资5000万美元,创造了越南当年金融科技投资的又一记录。

据统计,越南目前人口总量接近1亿人,其中25岁以下人口占人口总数约25%,数字化市场潜力巨大。

 

 

 

Momo, a Vietnam-based FinTech company that provides users with digital payment options, has reportedly received a very large Series C investment from American private equity firm Warburg Pincus.

The exact size of the investment isn’t being released, but Pham Thanh Duc, CEO of M-Service, which is Momo’s parent company, said the amount sets a new record for funding. One report says the deal could be worth as much as $100 million, but Pham declined to comment on the amount.

Southeast Asia has lately been a hotspot for global investing, and companies like Alibaba and Tencent have dropped hundreds of millions of dollars in the region.

Although the numbers have not been disclosed for many big Vietnam FinTech deals, one of the biggest last year was $50 million to eCommerce outfit Tiki, from the Chinese company JD.com. Vietnam has a market of almost 100 million people, about 25 percent of whom are under 25 years old.

Momo began by offering simple digital payments in an electronic wallet app, but it has expanded into bill payments and mobile top-up. It’s also grown into more recreational areas like movie tickets and travel, and allows for payments at 100,000 points around the country.

Pham said the company is working on a credit scoring system to help introduce users to financial services, in tandem with financial institutions. He added that he based the direction of the app on Alibaba’s popular Alipay and Tencent’s WeChat Pay services, which started as payment apps and expanded into more.

Momo works with Facebook and Google to allow payments, and the company is in talks with Apple, Pham said. Right now, he wants to keep the app in Vietnam.

“For the next two to three years, we are still very focused on the domestic market,” Pham said in an interview. “There’s no short-term plan to expand to other countries, [and] our main effort is focused on user base expansion in Vietnam.”
