ID Finance has been recognized as the top alternative lending brand in Spain by online search as well as the “fastest growing FinTech brand in LatAm, 5m+ users, +€30m/month loan issuance.”
ID Finance further claims to have closed the largest round by a non-UK Co. on Crowdcube in 2019; €5.4m. It’s offering what it considers to be an “industry-beating NPS of 70-78.” The firm reports a “YTD revenue €96m, profit €1.7m.”
The company just launched Plazo, which is a financial wellness app to “tap into €400 bn market of Southern Europe & Hispanic America.”
This audience is mainly “serviced by incumbent banks infamous for excessive costs for basic services (i.e. withdrawals, account fees).” Plazo aims to “disrupt this with a free online account & zero commissions card with cashback & discounts makes everyday shopping seamless & rewarding. In the future aiming to offer BNPL, saving & investing tools.”
The company also shared:
“ID Finance can deliver – it has a deep understanding of customer base, expertise in credit risk management, proprietary technology & proven traction in building FinTech businesses. This year it turned profitable generating YTD profit €1.7m, a remarkable surge from -€8.5m loss in pandemic-ravaged FY 2020, we believe it was a clear demonstration of resilience & adaptability.”
More than 25,000 Plazo cards have reportedly been issued “within just a few months since launch in Spain; we aim to make Plazo available in Mexico.” The Fintech firm believes Plazo is “an opportunity to improve the financial lives of people.”
