Yello Mobile, Korea’s fastest growing mobile Internet company, announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with SBI Holdings, Japan’s largest Internet financial group, and Yello Financial Group, Korea’s leading accelerator for financial technology companies.

Under the MoU, Yello Mobile will leverage SBI Holdings’ global business network and resources to support its business development efforts in Japan and Southeast Asia, furthering its position as Asia’s leading mobile company. Likewise, Yello Mobile will work in collaboration with Yello Financial Group to support SBI Holdings’ recently-launched financial technology business in Korea.

SBI Holdings will leverage Yello Mobile’s strong market position and digital marketing capabilities, as well as Yello Financial Group’s extensive network of financial technology companies, to enhance both its product offering and marketing strategies and more effectively reach Korea’s attractive mobile market.

With a portfolio of more than 30 growth companies, Yello Financial Group provides innovative, mobile-based, personalized financial services and products. The portfolio includes a range of companies within the financial services ecosystem, including payments platforms, peer-to-peer lending services, asset management products and other financial services providers.
