About Helicap

Who We Are & What We Do
Helicap is a Singapore-based FinTech firm connecting global investors to private investment opportunities in SEA. Our goal is to fill a $500 billion financing gap that banks are unable to serve and deploy capital to 300 million underbanked through 500 originator partners in the region. We have built an institutional-grade credit analytics technology that can churn and analyze millions of loan data points from origination platforms and extract meaningful credit rating insights. This is complemented by our fully online and MAS licensed investor deal platform, Helicap Securities.
In short, Helicap Securities provides curated private investments to a wide network of accredited investors including Family Offices, HNWIs, Impact Funds and Institutional Investors.
Since Helicap’s founding, and through Covid-19, we have disbursed US$80mil in private Investment volume with zero originator defaults. Our equity backers include Japanese financial services firm, Credit Saison, top VC firms - East Ventures, Access Ventures, Voveo Capital, and leading Singapore property group Soilbuild Group.

Our Vision

At Helicap, our vision is to use FinTech-powered risk management to provide vital liquidity to the region’s top growth companies, thus enabling financial access for millions of underbanked consumers and small and medium enterprises. Simultaneously, we are the trusted partner to Accredited Investors, giving them access to unique private investments with attractive risk-adjusted returns and portfolio diversification through uncorrelated exposures.

Our Founders

After decades in banking and investment management with some of the world’s top financial services firms, co-founders David, Quentin, and Jeremy joined forces on an entrepreneurial journey, directing their financial experience and investor network towards Asia’s fast growing FinTech lending space.

With the mission to partner alternative lenders to promote financial inclusion in Southeast Asia, Helicap provides investors with access to exclusive deal flow in SEA with strong risk-adjusted returns. In January 2018, Helicap was born out of an apartment in Singapore; today, it employs over 20 professionals with two MAS-licensed subsidiaries and offices in Singapore’s financial district.
