Cauris Global Fintech Fund —

MIP6: [CIM] MIP6 Application: Cauris Global Fintech Fund

Cauris is a mission driven company that applies advanced technology to solve financial issues while providing high risk adjusted returns to its investors.

We aim to give 100 million more people access to capital. We believe that access to credit is key to empowering individuals and enabling economic growth.

According to the World Bank, to close the gap on financial inclusion and enable the gig economy, medium & small enterprises need $5.2TN in financing. Traditional banks unfortunately have been unable to fulfil this gap as illustrated by the fact that only 25% of Africa’s population has a bank account vs. 90% in OECD countries.
As shown above, there is clearly a need to disrupt the traditional banking system to make financial inclusion around the globe a reality.
At Cauris, we believe that fintech is the fastest way to efficiently connect millions to financial services, and that DeFi provides a unique opportunity to democratize and lower the cost of financing.
Driven by this mission, we are finding the best-in class fintechs operating in international markets which are providing working capital and access to financing to consumers and SMEs.
We use a combination of strong underwriting and legal protections to secure our debt investments in fintechs.
