Singapore-based lending startup FinAccel revealed Monday, Dec 2, it has secured a $90 million capital in a Series C equity funding round led by Asia Growth Fund and Square Peg. The fundraising round marks one of the largest funding rounds for a fintech startup in Southeast Asia and brings the total capital raised by the company this year alone to over $200 million.
In a press release, the fintech startup revealed it will be using the newly-accumulated fund to expand its range of financial services in Indonesia, accelerate its growth in the Southeast Asian region, and hire new talents that will benefit the company.
Other investors who have participated in the Series C fundraise include Singtel Innov8, Telkomsel Indonesia, Cathay Innovation, Kejora Intervest, Mirae Asset Securities, Reinventure, DST Partners, and others.
“We are very excited to have Mirae Asset and Naver join our growth journey,” shared FinAccel CEO, Akshay Garg, in a statement. “These highly entrepreneurial companies bring deep domain expertise in financial services and consumer internet, Kredivo sits at the intersection of both areas. Additionally, we are very pleased that our incoming investors share in our vision of building a wide set of financial services that are fast, affordable and accessible for millions of customers in the region.”
