BASIX Sub-K iTransactions Limited, a Hyderabad-based fintech company focussed on financial inclusion, has raised Series C round of Rs 75 crore from Maj Invest, a Denmark-based asset management company.


Sub-K plans to utilise the funds for product innovation and strengthening the IT platform that would position the company as a preferred fintech as well as a distribution partner for banks and financial institutions, it said in a statement on Wednesday.


Sasidhar Thumuluri, BASIX Sub-K Managing Director and CEO, said, 


"We will be able to continue to invest in innovations and increase our reach multi-fold, thanks to Maj Invest who shares our vision of creating a world class vehicle for catalysing inclusive growth, along with our existing investors, Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, Accion, and Nordic Microfinance Initiative (NMI)."

We are excited to work alongside the promoters, co-investors, and management to continue providing top-class financial service while looking to create real social impact in the regions we serve."
