Lakeba ranks in FT’s High Growth Companies for the second year running

Avatar

Published

on

The annual Financial Times Asia-Pacific High Growth Companies ranking places Lakeba as the fastest growing Fintech in Australia.

“Our no-nonsense approach is paying off,” says Lakeba’s CEO, Giuseppe Porcelli.

Lakeba’s growth is driven primarily by its fintech business portfolio, including eziTECH, Verimoto, ezidox, BRICKLET and Quixxi. Whilst it has 12 businesses in its portfolio, its fintech businesses deliver hyper growth. With the Financial Times also recognising Lakeba as part of Australia’s Top Fastest.

Lakeba’s eziTech Banking as a Service technologies are now being utilised by a growing consortium of organisations in the financial services sector, including some of Australia’s most progressive neobanks.

Verimoto provides remote asset and identification verification for vehicle and asset financing. It posted 170 percent YoY growth in March.

Lakeba’s electronic document curation platform, ezidox, saw significant growth. Fuelled by increased broker usage while COVID restrictions eliminated physical document transactions, and deeper integration in one of Australia’s big-5 banks and their key challenger bank. Its CDR accreditation is already fuelling the growth of ezidox’ development as a data rights intermediary.

Quixxi Security’s patented obfuscation technology is used by one of the biggest US insurers, Allstate Insurance Company; Africa’s Standard Bank Group and some of Australia’s most recognised brands. Increased adoption of 5G and eventual 6G technologies in financial services accelerate the need for Quixxi’s technology.

While Lakeba’s property fragmentation service, BRICKLET, remains unchallenged the world over. Currently limiting fragmentation to Australia, it’s portfolio of property fragments is growing in excess of $45 Million.

“We were quite happy to be the biggest fintech you’ve never heard of. But this two-year consecutive ranking by the Financial Times and Nikkei Asia puts pay to that”, smiles Porcelli.

Lakeba‘s doubling down on recruiting senior financial services executive talent, adding to its appointments of Ubank, Judo Bank, eftpos and Citi Bank executive, Alex Twigg; Goldman Sach’s Frank Zhu and Macquarie Bank’s Telly Desillas. Recently hiring Adrian Valinno, BNY Mellon’s former Digital Transformation Lead.

“It’s really important to us to keep attracting the right talent and challenging the ridiculous notion that fintech shareholders need extreme patience in seeing their returns. Our continuing rate of achievement blows that notion out of the water,” concludes Porcelli.

Mambu research reveals global consumers are hesitant to use Open Banking

Avatar

Published

on

A study of 2,000 global consumers released by Mambu, the market-leading banking and financial services platform, revealed that a significant misunderstanding of open banking is hampering its adoption. The Censuswide survey, commissioned by Mambu, found that more than half (52%) of respondents have never heard of open banking and 61% have never used it, in spite of 80% of respondents using one or more mobile finance apps.

“The research reveals the majority of customers don’t understand what open banking is, how it works and what it means for them”, said Elliott Limb, Mambu’s Chief Customer Officer. “But it also reveals they do care about receiving better financial services that support their lifestyles – smart banking. If banks address this need and lack of understanding, it will help banks build customer loyalty and provide genuinely innovative, differentiating, revenue-generating services.”

Kristofer Rogers, General Manager ANZ for Mambu, added, “In Australia, one of the main reasons for the slow adoption of open banking so far is that open banking is built on modern technology, and the Australian banking and financial services industry is not. There’s a huge disconnect, with many established banks simply unable to deliver on the regulatory requirements of open banking with their existing technology – they need to adopt API-first, cloud banking tech to truly embrace open banking. And it’s imperative that we do make progress on this because beyond technology, open banking is ultimately an ideology of creating better financial outcomes for every Australian, and who doesn’t want that.”

Open banking sees increase post-COVID despite consumers being ‘scared’ to use it

Open banking has witnessed an increase in adoption globally as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the research indicates a marked change in attitude and priorities as a result of the crisis. According to our survey, 52% said they wanted more control over their finances. At the same time, 40% said the pandemic had changed their attitudes to privacy and 24% to data sharing. Another boost came from the 41% who said they have had more time for research.

  • I have needed to take more control of my finances (52%)
  • I have had the time to do my own research and understand it better (41%)
  • My attitude to privacy has changed since the pandemic (40%)
  • I’m less worried about sharing data (24%)
  • I have had more time to set it up (40%)

However, existing concerns remain with 48% of consumers claiming they are ‘scared’ to use open banking and 53% still believing that open banking is a dangerous use of data sharing.

“Banks must accept that open banking is still a not fully comprehended phenomenon so this is the starting point,” said Dmitrii Barbasura, CEO and Co-Founder, Salt Edge, a Mambu partner. “We believe they need to invest time and effort in educating customers about the new possibilities they get access to, and also inform them about their rights and the high safety level covered by open banking.”

Change the Record

Demonstrating the opportunity for open banking, the survey revealed that 57% said they would be more likely to use it if their bank had more successfully implemented and promoted it.

When exploring further what consumers want from open banking, the survey shows that nearly half of respondents want instant digital money transfers; more than a third want aggregated bank balances at a glance; a third want tips on better money management and a quarter want money-saving suggestions for their bills.

  • Instantly transfer money between different accounts (48%)
  • See different account balances together at a glance (38%)
  • Help boost my savings automatically calculating spending patterns and moving spare money into savings or investments (36%)
  • Receive helpful hints about better money management (34%)
  • Receive one overall monthly bank statement (34%)
  • Allow access to banking data to receive automatic suggestions about money saving on bills and insurance (26%)

This is the first study of Mambu’s newly launched research series, Disruption Diaries. The series seeks to understand what customers think of the key trends driving the development of the financial services industry, in an effort to identify opportunities for banks and others.

Zip Co raises $400 million for international expansion

Avatar

Published

on

Zip Co (ASX: Z1P) has priced $400 million of senior convertible notes to fund expansion into new regions on the back of major growth in the US.

Co-founder and COO Peter Gray says the move will keep shareholders happy, with the notes set to mature in 2028.

“We are very pleased with the strong global demand for this offering,” says Gray.

“This transaction further diversifies Zip’s sources of capital and allows us to pursue our global growth aspirations while reducing potential dilution of existing shareholders. Another fantastic outcome for Zip and its shareholders.”

The $400 million in convertible notes mirrors the approach recently taken by buy-now pay-later (BNPL) competitor Afterpay (ASX: APT).

However, Zip’s latest raise doesn’t come close to the whopping $1.5 billion secured by Afterpay’s settlement of convertible notes due in 2026.

The offering is being marketed to eligible investors and the notes are set to be listed on the official list of the Singapore Securities Trading exchange. Settlement is expected on or about 23 April 2021.
