Edenred, the Aviva France and Virtual Network SA groups acquire a €1.5 million stake in Finsquare.

The first P2B crowdfunding platform for short-term loans, Finsquare has affirmed its ambition of becoming the leader on the French business lending market. 

To sustain its growth, only six months after it was launched, Finsquare decided to launch a fundraising campaign with the support of Edenred by way of Edenred Capital Partners, the group's alternative investments department

This investment is consistent with Edenred's development strategy on the market of small businesses and SMEs.

* Credit scoring consists in assessing credit risk through a statistical score.
