Dear FinLeap Friends,
we hope that your year was as successful and busy as ours and that you are ready for some updates from the finleap universe. Thank you to all finleap colleagues, partners and friends, it was a fantastic year thanks to your support!
Let us look back together on the year 2018. We are sure you heard of our recent funding round of over EUR 41.5 million led by our new investor Ping An’s Global Voyager Fund from China. We are very proud to have completed this milestone and have an investor of such caliber on board. As Ping An is the world’s largest insurance company by market capitalization this marks a new era for the finleap ecosystem.
That’s one small step for man, one giant finleap for mankind
Ok, maybe not such a giant leap for mankind, but surely a big step forward for fintech. finleap has reached a big milestone on our mission to reshape the future of finance: we have recently closed our latest funding round of over EUR 41.5 million led by the Chinese financial services firm, Ping An Global Voyager Fund. Ping An is the world‘s largest insurance company by market capitalization and a widely recognized fintech and healthtech innovator. We are now looking forward to partnering with a company whose DNA reflects our own ambitions of being 100% digital and at the forefront of innovation. The fresh capital will be used to support our further growth and to develop new technologies and companies as well as to expand further geographically.
