South-East Asia’s Grab makes deeper push into consumer credit, lending

Author:   |    Publish date:


SINGAPORE: South-East Asia's Grab said on March 19 it would offer consumer credit and expand its lending to small businesses as part of the ride-hailing firm's big push into the financial services sector, an area it has earmarked for growth.
 
Grab is pursuing lending licenses across South-East Asia, it said on March 19.
 
"Over time as we acquire the necessary licences to do that (lending), we will do that ourselves and together with our partners," Reuben Lai, senior managing director, Grab Financial, told reporters on the sidelines of the Money 20/20 fintech conference.
 
While the company is satisfied operating across markets under various licences, Lai said it would apply for a banking licence if needed.
 
Grab also plans to offer an interest-free instalment product for consumer purchases under its existing joint venture with Japanese credit card company Credit Saison.
