FE CREDIT announced that it has completed a loan procedure with Lion Asia I (RB) Limited, taking out US$50 million to continue growing its business as the market leader in Vietnam’s consumer finance industry and to better meet financial demands of millions of Vietnamese people.

Lion Asia, an entity established in British Virgin Islands and 100% owned by the Lending Ark Asia Secured Private Debt Fund (The Fund, acted as facility agent for this US$50 million). The Fund has been established by Lending Ark Asia Secured Private Debt Holdings Limited, a market leader in complex, innovative secured private credit lending across the Asia Pacific region.

As one of the few pioneers in the consumer finance industry in Vietnam, after seven years, FE CREDIT has established a solid foundation to become the market leader with business practices that compare favorably with the best in the world. Currently, FE CREDIT holds nearly 50% of the market share in the consumer finance industry in Vietnam.

Kalidas Ghose, vice chairman and CEO of FE CREDIT, said: “This cooperation continues to re-affirm our brand value and the operational excellence of our business in meeting the highest level of international standards.”

“This loan facilitates the growth of our business in future by providing solutions to the needs of millions of people across Vietnam, who are not currently served well by banks, with better financial products and services. Also, this cooperation demonstrates the trust that international partners have in the sustainable vision of FE CREDIT and the commitment of its shareholders as well as management going forward.”

Gregory Park, a representative of Lion Asia, said it is a great honor to announce the successful completion of our US$50 million facility for FE CREDIT. With the tremendous support of State Bank of Vietnam and hard work of FE CREDIT, the entire working team was able to swiftly complete this cooperation.

“We believe that with its strong management team serving the expanding consumer finance market of Vietnam’s 95 million citizens, FE CREDIT makes its business an example of a great success in the global financial markets,” he said.
