BNPL as an asset class for investors

In this new article published on Arteculate, Radek Jezbera, Kilde's CEO, unveils why, in his view, BNPL presents a lucrative opportunity for investors.

While the BNPL industry is still in its early stages, it has a massive potential for growth. Given rising inflation and the volatility of public markets,  everyone’s looking for income products not correlated with the public markets, and BNPL is a promising asset offering high returns for a relatively low level of risk.

At its core, BNPL is a series of high-yield loans characterized by low risk levels: in Southeast Asian markets, such as Singapore and Hong Kong, the credit loss rates are between 3% to 4%, which roughly compares to those of credit cards, standing at 4% to 7%. At the same time, the nature of the BNPL product, which is a high-yield product with a high asset turnover rate, translates into high-profitability for investors. Kilde uses data science to identify the best BNPL companies in Southeast Asia and transform their loans into investable assets in the form of private bonds with a fixed maturity and return.
