Fasanara’s mission: to be the institutional benchmark for Fintech Lending & Digital Investing

We are building the Digital Future of financial markets

Fintech Lending

The Opportunity

The retrenchment of traditional banks from the SME markets to focus on their largest clients creating a funding gap in the trillions to underserved SMEs and financially excluded Consumers.

The solution

A new asset class of Fintech Lending, i.e. tech-enabled specialist lenders, is growing exponentially.

Fintech Platform Economies

  • New Capital Markets

  • Platform

  • Marketplaces

  • Embedded Finance

Upcoming collision & merging of worlds…

Digital Assets

The Opportunity

Legacy systems of transferring value are slow, cumbersome and laden with friction and inefficiencies.

The solution

Just as the internet was transformative for the mobility of information, Digital Assets will be revolutionary for the way in which value is transferred. We are witnessing entirely new financial rails being engineered and for the first time being able to handle users at scale.

Community-Owned Economies

  • New Currencies & Ecosystems

  • Blockchain

  • DeFi

  • Tokenisation of Real World Assets

Global Decentralised Funding Platform

Fasanara acts as the nexus point in a global decentralised ecosystem of 137 fintech loan originators across 60+ countries, fully integrated into our technology platform.

Over the course of more than a decade, we have mapped 1,250+ platforms and conducted full due diligence on more than 400.
