Finder, a fintech firm company founded in Australia in 2006, has acquired the GoBear brand as it accelerates its global expansion.
Servicing more than 10 million consumers globally every month, Finder is a fast growing financial comparison platform.
Finder’s acquisition of the GoBear brand includes trademark and digital assets including domains, website content and social channels in seven markets: Singapore, Hong Kong SAR, Vietnam, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia. The GoBear brand will continue to operate via social media and email channels, however the website content will now form part of finder.com and its local services.
“We are thrilled to have the GoBear brand join the Finder Group and to be able to serve customers in Southeast Asia under this well-known brand,” said Frank Restuccia, Founder and Global CEO at Finder, who owns Finder alongside fellow Australians Fred Schebesta and Jeremy Cabral.
“Like Finder, GoBear has been committed to improving the financial wellbeing of its audience, with over 55 million people having visited its website since its launch in 2015 to make better-informed decisions.
“Finder’s mission is to help people all over the world make better financial decisions and we’re excited to ramp up our offering to the region through a recognised brand like GoBear.”
Globally, Finder compares more than 200 different verticals ranging from personal finance products such as credit cards, home loans and savings accounts to online shopping, cryptocurrency and share trading, and is rapidly expanding into new areas every week.
