Major Indian bank looks for fintech acquihire
(Acquihire is an acquisition of a company primarily for the skills and expertise of its staff, rather than for the products or services it supplies.)
In a LinkedIn post, Handa says that a large bank (he clarifies that it is not Bank of Baroda) is looking to buy a fintech firm.
“The institution is at the centre of lots of action in the SME space and could provide a good platform for the team to learn and further sharpen their skillset,” he notes.
It is looking for a fintech with the following requirements:
- team size – up to ten people;
- team profile – experienced in the lending business;
- core business – lending (preferably focused on SMEs)
Handa is asking interested parties to get in touch with him on LinkedIn.
