The Group’s vision is to make the entire underserved population in SEA “bankable”.

Company Overview

Capital C Corporation “(Cap C)” capitalises on fintech and the best emerging technologies in the market to provide financial services to the under-served in Singapore.

OVERVIEW

“Through its digital lending platform, Capital C seeks to provide its users with:

  • The convenience of applying loan from the comforts of home;
  • 24/7 availability of access to various lending functions;
  • Paperless processes;
  • Automated Payments options;

South East Asia is home to over 670 million people, of which an estimated 73% of the population are “underbanked”

There is a significant gap in the traditional banking penetration in the region, leaving at least 438 million individuals without any access to bank accounts, credit or debit cards, or access to lines of credit.

With the groundwork it has laid out Capital C is primed to bridge this gap and be spurred on to achieve exponential growth through market capture via its respective multiple product offerings

Using a set proprietary credit scoring rules and algorithms, the Group developed a credit scoring model which is able to accurately gauge the credit worthiness of the underbanked population and provide them with financing solutions.

The precision of these models are positively enhanced over time with the use of AI-powered tools, as more borrowing and repayment data iterates and optimises results.
