Reaching Billions with Financial Services

LeapFrog invests in extraordinary financial services businesses in Africa and Asia

LeapFrog’s financial services portfolio includes credit, pensions, remittances and insurance providers delivering financial inclusion at scale to underserved emerging consumers.

Today, LeapFrog’s financial services investments reach more than 258 million people, 194 million of whom are lower-income emerging consumers. 

In the past year alone, LeapFrog financial services companies have

  • Paid out $533 million in insurance claims
  • Disbursed $16.4 billion in loans
  • Paid out $288.8 million in pensions
  • Enabled more than $6 billion in remittances

By supporting extraordinary businesses with innovative, digital, and customer-centric business models, LeapFrog has helped make essential financial services more affordable and accessible in Asia and Africa, empowering millions of people to grow their businesses, buy homes, build household savings, and protect themselves and their families from economic and health shocks.

Recent investments by LeapFrog’s team include SE Asian insuretech company PasarPolis, which primarily serves consumers who have never held an insurance policy before and now insures around 11% of the Indonesian population, and CarDekho, the leading auto-tech platform in India, whose insurance, credit, and auto-trading solutions improve access to mobility for millions. These complement longstanding investments such as Zepz, a global leader in remittances that revolutionised migrant-money transfers through its digital platform that now operates in more than 130 countries, and JUMO, which creates inclusive digital marketplaces that advance inclusion for traditionally underserved communities, and now reaches more than 17 million customers.

Total people reached and emerging consumers reached includes customers and their households served by financial services and products across LeapFrog Fund I, Fund II, and Fund III portfolio companies. An average household multiplier is used to calculate the products’ potential impact on customers’ households.
