Global Brain (GB) has invested in CROWD CREDIT, Inc., a social lending company, through its SFV・GB L.P. (“SFV・GB fund”).

CROWD CREDIT provides a social lending platform, which connects various investors and investees in the world (mainly in high-growth countries). It was founded in 2013 and has provided debt capital to borrowers including peer to peer lending platforms, balance sheet lenders and microfinance institutions. It has been providing new opportunities to investors in Japan, where the interest rate has been low, to invest in global loan funds with relatively high expected yield rate.

GB has decided to invest in CROWD CREDIT because we evaluated its stable origination capability, the growth potential of the market, and CROWD CREDIT managements. GB will leverage its resources to support CROWD CREDIT by supporting the company in strategy development and building partnerships to expand their business both domestically and internationally.
