Goji, a direct lending investment manager and technology platform has raised an undisclosed round of funding.
The investment was led by Anthemisâ€™ Venture Fund 1, while AXA Strategic Ventures also participated in the round.
UK-based Goji provides investors and financial intermediaries with a single place, from across the direct lending industry. The platform offers diversified lending investment products, which allow investors to earn a steady rate of return.
Founded in 2015, the company offers investors access to analytics tools, an investment platform and access to finance ISAs.
Capital from the round will be used to develop its platform and the product pipeline.
AXA Strategic Ventures managing partner FranÃ§ois Robinet said, â€œWe believe that the unique, integrated Direct Lending solutions provided by Goji will create real differentiation in the asset management industry and will contribute to position Direct Lending as a major asset class for investors.
â€œGojiâ€™s platform, based on differential technology, allows intermediaries both to easily build and manage an alternative credit portfolio and to smoothly manage the back-office operations. In addition, the management teamâ€™s proven background in the fintech space is well placed to grow and scale the company.â€
Last month, Anthemis led the $3m funding round in to B2B digital mortgage software developer Maxwell Financial Labs. Other recent FinTech investments made by Anthemis include re/insurance underwriters Insurdata and banking API developer TrueLayer.
