Senjo Group, a privately held investment firm, today announced that it has established its new global headquarters in Singapore. The leading financial technology investor has leased the entire 56th floor of One Raffles Place in Singapore’s Central Business District.
Founded in 2015, Senjo Group was first set up as a holding company for a portfolio of payments and financial technology companies with operations in most major markets spanning Asia, Europe, North America and Africa. It specializes in providing innovative and disruptive solutions in global electronic payments, trade finance and e-commerce.
This growing portfolio of companies operates across payments processing, cross-border remittance, foreign exchange, trade finance, e-commerce, mobile payments, commodity trading and factoring – functions split between Senjo’s core business units: Payments, Commerce, Ventures, Trading, and Finance.
Yoshio Tomiie, Head of Commerce, Senjo Group, says,
“Senjo offers deep operational expertise across e-commerce, payments, technology and corporate finance. Our strategy has always been to invest in profitable financial technology firms with high growth potential in Asia and around the world. Our goal is to build a world-class financial technology group, and to do that we need the right space.
Senjo invests in both start-ups and established companies that are profitable and scalable, as well as partnering with companies who are looking to benefit from its global footprint, financial support, and operational expertise. Senjo aims to increase its portfolio significantly over the coming years.
The Group’s commitment to expanding their business is also reflected in recent executive appointments. Gavin Lock joins as Chief Operating Officer and Sam Evans is appointed as the Vice President of Business Development and Head of Ventures. Lock joins from Accenture, where he was Senior Manager/ Principal of Strategy Consulting. Evans has held positions in business development, sales and general management, with familiar names such as Unilever, First Data and Sun Microsystems.
In addition to the new Singapore headquarters, Senjo also has regional offices in Japan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand, Luxembourg and the UK.
