专注按揭贷款,Fintech创企Habito完成千万英镑B轮融资

Habito是一家来自英国的乐天堂娱乐科技创企,通过将房屋按揭贷款流程数字化来提高用户的乐天堂娱乐服务体验。

近日,该平台宣布成功完成1850万英镑B轮融资。本次融资由Skype创始人Niklas Zennstrom的Atomico风投领投,现有投资人Ribbit Capital、Mosaic Ventures和Revolutionary (ad)Ventures跟投。加上之前的投资,Habito已经累计融资2750万英镑。

Habito表示,本轮融资将主要用于建设创新性按揭贷款经纪商聊天机器人,同时准备与高街银行合作添加实时按揭贷款审批服务。

截至目前,Habito已经累计为5万名用户提供了总额超过2.5亿英镑的按揭贷款。而9个月前,Habito还只有2万名用户,服务的按揭贷款总量也只有5000万英镑。这样的发展速度让平台创始人和首席执行官也吃了一惊。

对于本次投资,Atomico风投合伙人Niall Wass表示,仅在英国,每年消费者就要因为市场效率问题而在按揭贷款方面多花费300亿英镑。如何为用户提供更加简单、便捷和廉价的服务才是市场核心的关键。Habito的模式对于按揭贷款双方来说都是一个不错的选择。

A fintech startup focused on making mortgage applications easier has bagged millions more in funding from top investors.

Atomico, the venture fund set up by Skype founder Niklas Zennstrom, led the £18.5m series B round with existing investors Ribbit Capital, Mosaic Ventures and Revolutionary (ad)Ventures also participating.

It brings total funding for the startup – which is also backed by the entrepreneurs behind Transferwise and Funding Circle Taavet Hinrikus and Samir Desai respectively – to £27.5m. City A.M. exclusively revealed its first major round of funding earlier this year.

Habito will use the fresh cash to build on its innovative chatbot mortgage broker with home and life insurance and is working with high street banks to add its real-time mortgage approvals technology to services, the company revealed.

It has already advised 50,000 customers complete more than £250m worth of mortgages. That's up from the 20,000 completing £50m worth just nine months ago – a period of growth founder and chief executive Daniel Hegarty described as explosive.?

“Since our series A, we’ve had an amazing response from customers and a period of explosive growth. Our best-in-class technology, coupled with our team of first rate mortgage experts, prevents homeowners from ever getting or staying on the wrong mortgage," he said.

"We remain committed to rebuilding the mortgage industry with the customer at its centre. That means relentlessly improving our product and service, and providing the most convenient, straightforward, and elegant way to apply for a mortgage."

It will also grow staff numbers which have already tripled since April 2016.

Atomico partner Niall Wass said: “When you see a very large inefficient market, with £30bn of annual overspend by consumers in the UK alone, and a business rethinking how to provide a simpler, faster and cheaper service to customers, more targeted access to borrowers, and with lower costs for the lender, there is a lot to like."

"Habito is a solution that is better for both sides of the mortgage market and with a great team executing with technology and customer service at its heart – Habito is a company we are excited to support," he added.
