About FinEX Asia
FinEX Asia is the first global fintech marketplace connecting Asian investors with high quality, low volatility asset classes, including U.S. consumer lending, a market that was dominated by institutional investors. FinEX Asia unlocks the potential of these quality asset classes and provides Asian investors with access to a diverse portfolio of verified overseas assets with a streamlined, single-point onboarding and taxation process.
Founded by Maggie Ng, former Head of Unsecured Lending at Citibank N.A., FinEX Asia combines advanced fintech infrastructure with global consumer lending professionals to assist users in leveraging the platform’s advanced risk modeling capabilities, blockchain data security, real-time performance monitoring, and secondary market liquidity to make better investment decisions.
FinEX Asia is based in Hong Kong and is a strategic technology partner of Dianrong, a leader in online marketplace lending in China.
Over the last 20 years, even during the global financial crisis, investments in U.S. credit card debt and consumer loans have consistently delivered net yields of 5-12% over a three- to five-year investment horizon. This asset class has outperformed high-yield corporate debt in the U.S. and Asia during the same period.
Thousands of leading U.S. institutional investors, including pension and hedge funds, recognise the power of marketplace lending and actively invest in this asset class.
Still, many institutional investors in Asia Pacific have not yet incorporated these high-performing assets into their overall investment strategies. Current hurdles include language, inflexible product structures, know-your-customer policy requirements, currency hedging and tax withholding.
FinEX Asia’s consumer loan expertise, advanced financial technology and established relationships with U.S. marketplace lenders can help investors overcome those hurdles quickly and easily.
