We have an unparalleled track record operating in banking, entrepreneurship and FinTech investment, bringing that unique combination of experience to bear for our partners.
Internal and external drivers are resulting in unprecedented change across the financial markets. Firms’ access to capital and cost-appetite have diminished, while regulatory pressure and their own desires for control have increased. This climate has created a once-in-a-generation demand amongst major financial institutions for the disruptive business models that only early-stage technology providers can deliver.
Illuminate Financial’s deep knowledge of the FinTech space enables us to identify those firms with the potential to solve these significant challenges in the industry. Our portfolio companies can leverage our established relationships across the markets to validate their approach and development, and ensure they capitalise on opportunity. Illuminate Financial’s hard-earned credibility is based on our proven ability to de-risk the journey for financial institutions, emerging technology service providers and investors.
This collaborative approach is part of what makes Illuminate Financial much more than simply a source of funding. As active partner capital we only invest where we know we can proactively and positively influence the outcomes for all our partners.
