Singapore’s TurnKey Lender Raises $10 Million in New Equity and Debt Funding

Lending automation platform and decision management solution and services provider TurnKey Lender has secured $10 million in new funding. The amount raised represents a blend of both equity financing and debt. Led by OTB Ventures, the round featured participation from German development finance institution DEG and Vertex Ventures.

TurnKey Lender will use the additional capital to help expand its operations across North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia. This will help the company take advantage of the growing embrace of embedded finance, especially embedded lending.

“We are pleased to have raised our latest level of funding and to continue partnering with great investors,” TurnKey Lender CEO and co-founder Dmitry Voronenko said. “This will turbocharge the next stage of growth. We believe that embedded lending will soon be part of any customer relationship globally.”

In addition to its fundraising news, TurnKey Lender announced that it had appointed a new chair for its board of directors, Christian Morales. Morales, who participated in this week’s funding round, brings 40 years of senior experience in leading technology companies. As chair, he will be involved in supporting a wide range of the company’s initiatives in terms of revenue growth, hiring, as well as both strategic and client relationships.

TurnKey Lender offers credit scoring, decision automation, and loan management for non-bank lenders. The company’s cloud-based technology is geared specifically toward small and medium-sized lending operations, enabling them to “compete with big banks without the big investment.” TurnKey Lender’s platform supports all stages of the loan lifecycle – from application processing and automated decision-making to collection and reporting. The solution also can be readily integrated into both internal and external data sources to provide automated data retrieval and processing. TurnKey Lender’s platform is compatible with a wide variety of lending products, including consumer, microfinance, payday, auto, mortgage, SME, and P2P loans.

Making its Finovate debut at FinovateAsia 2016, TurnKey Lender returned to the Finovate stage a year later for FinovateSpring in San Jose, California. In the years since, the company has grown into a leading fintech provider with 180 clients and 50 million end users in more than 50 countries. TurnKey Lender’s customers have enjoyed profitable revenue growth of as much as 50% and net retention rates of 126%. The company was founded in 2014.
