Capital Match is a peer-to-peer lending and invoice financing platform for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) in Southeast Asia.[1][2] Headquartered in Singapore, it operates an online platform[3] for SMEs to seek funds from investors.[4]

History[edit]

Capital Match was incorporated in 2014 and launched operationally in early 2015.[5]

In early 2017, Capital Match’s subsidiary, CM Advisers Pte. Ltd., obtained a CMS Licence with the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).[6]

As of June 2017, Capital Match claims to have processed financing of more than S$40 million in cumulative origination.[7] Capital Match has received funding[8] from investors that include Dymon Asia Ventures, Innosight Ventures and Crystal Horse Investments, among others.[9][10]

Business model[edit]

Capital Match provides an online platform for SMEs to obtain short term financing from individual and corporate investors[11]

Investors can browse the facilities on the platform and make a minimum commitment of S$1,000 per facility[12] and earn interest on their investments.[13] Capital Match earns by charging borrowers a processing fee and late payment fee (in the case whereby repayments from the borrower are delayed) and investors a commission fee.[14]
