AsiaKredit was seeded by FORUM and Fintonia Group with early investors Susquehanna International Group’s Asia Investments. It is now wholly owned by GoBear, Asia’s leading financial supermarket.
AsiaKredit was formed by a group of established entrepreneurs and executives in the financial services, internet/e-commerce, and technology industries. Their over 100 years of combined experience has resulted in successful ventures leading them to team up and recognize a massive gap in the consumer finance space in Southeast Asia.
In spite of Southeast Asia’s half a billion plus population and over two trillion (US) dollars in GDP, bank penetration is less than 50%, and worse, credit card is 5%. While developed market’s consumer lending as a percent of GDP are in excess of 50%, Indonesia is 17% while the Philippines is only 7%.
In the Philippines alone where there are over 60 million Filipino adults, only 20 million have a bank account and only 3 million have a credit card. Yet we know that 7 out of 10 Filipinos have the need for - and secure credit, mostly from informal lenders.
