Who We Are

We invest in Pre-Seed to Series B companies globally, but with a focus on South East Asia and India. Investing across all verticals, including but not limited to SaaS, marketplaces, fintech, we have a deep fondness for embedded finance – non-fintech companies and industry leaders that are looking to build fintech arms within their ecosystems.

We are more
than just

We have the autonomy of an independent, global investment mandate, and Credit Saison’s resources and track record in driving financial services adoption among underserved consumer bases.

We are investing for the long term

We invest for the long term in ambitious, agile, commercially-minded founders. We offer debt as well as equity financing to give founders the freedom to grow their company their way.

Our Portfolio

Our Team

Our investment team has a strong track record in emerging market investing, in both traditional finance and fintech disruptors, from e-commerce to microfinance.
