With financial innovation driven by technologies, Neo Financial is striving to bring clients more convenient and safer financial services, safeguarding clients’ assets, maintaining and adding values to their fortune. Since 2016, Neo Financial has begun to reform its borrower side based on fintech, shifted its customer acquisition model from an “offline” model to an “offline + online” model, and driven its own growth with technologies rather than manpower. Neo Financial’s business model has created a closed loop of investment and financing. At the borrower side, it has built a national network of salespeople to search for quality small amount borrowers, while at the investor side, it has acquired customers online and facilitated the settlement of P2P lending business. Through independent modeling, real-time engine, and enhanced risk control based on big data, scenario-based monitoring and early warning can be achieved before, during and after the lending.
