Lendbuzz Closes $100 Million Facility

By Staff Writer June 11, 2024

Lendbuzz, an AI-based fintech company, has closed a $100 million credit facility with MUFG. The additional warehouse capacity will fuel Lendbuzz’s continued loan origination growth.

“We invested in Lendbuzz to support their mission to bring AI-powered auto financing to the underserved and we are excited to expand our partnership,” said Mayank Shiromani, Deputy Chief Investment Officer at MUFG Innovation Partners (MUIP).

The expansion increases Lendbuzz’s capacity and ability to grow the number of borrowers its proprietary AI-based auto finance platform serves. The platform enables Lendbuzz to continue to focus on assessing the creditworthiness of consumers across the credit spectrum, many of whom are underserved by traditional banks and offering its consumers a modern, digital lending experience. This group includes those with no credit, thin credit, and near prime, and accounts for over 40 percent of the adult U.S. population.

“This expansion further strengthens our funding capabilities and ability to execute our strategic growth plans,” said George Sclavos, chief financial officer at Lendbuzz. “MUFG has been a long-standing partner, and we are excited for this opportunity to deepen the relationship. It demonstrates the confidence our partners have in Lendbuzz and our continued focus on exceptional underwriting and credit decisioning.”
