[Hong Kong, 22 June 2020] – FundPark Limited (“FundPark”), Hong Kong’s leading online trade finance platform formed a tripartite cross-border collaboration with Cainiao Smart Logistics Network Limited (“Cainiao”) and a Chinese domestic bank, creating an unconventional cooperative model.

The entire approval process can be completed in seconds and funds can be dispatched within one business day.

 

The bank will provide a credit limit of RMB 2 billion (equivalent to HKD 2.17 billion). Cainiao’s technological risk management capabilities, combined with its international cross-border logistics and warehouse management will enable the bank to apply its risk evaluation model and upgrade its credit management system, increasing its speed and efficiency. Cainiao’s merchants will not have to undergo any offline processes or provide any collaterals, nor provide financial statements or guarantees. With just a few simple steps, merchants can obtain millions of Hong Kong Dollars of credit loan.

 

“As the first accredited FinTech company collaborating with Cainiao and a Chinese domestic bank, FundPark is optimistic towards the outlook of our cooperation. It is estimated that the credit limit will exceed HKD 10 billion for the first year. We hope the launch of this cooperation will encourage the digitalisation of trade financing in e-commerce,” said Mr. Anson Suen, Chief Executive Officer of FundPark.

 

“Digital financing solutions with the aid of API has already been a major market trend. We have been working closely with FundPark for about 1.5 years. Our solutions are highly acclaimed by peers and clients alike. By digitizing trade finance, we provide merchants with a more convenient and faster solution,” Mr. Zhao Wei, Financing and Logistics General Manager of Cainiao.

According to data from the eMarketer report in 2019, the global e-commerce market has reached HKD 27 trillion with China accounting for more than 50 percent of global market share. E-commerce platform will be a key business partner for FundPark.
