To consolidate itself as one of the leading financial platforms in Latin America, Avista recently announced the acquisition of IdeasLab, a leading product and software development company located in Medellin, for an undisclosed amount. 

Banks have traditionally focused on clients who have an identified credit risk and are on their labor cusp in order to target high expense products. However, with a growing aging population, the opportunity arises for tailor made credit products focused on the Silver Economy (people over 60). With estimates that this population will take, by 2050, a third of the overall spending distribution in most countries. 2 Avista has seen a unique opportunity to provide credit products to this unattended population helping them improve their quality of life. 

As a big step closer to achieving this, Avista has secured a financing round for US$75M led by four different undisclosed financial institutions in Colombia. This will allow the company to position itself as one of the leading payroll lending Fintech in Colombia through a disruptive technological platform designed for payroll deduction loans. The credits will be allocated among retirees from intermediate, rural and low-income cities in Colombia, who remain underserved by traditional institutions.

In keeping up the fast-growing pace, Avista signed an acqui-hire deal with IdeasLab, one of the most prominent tech laboratories in Colombia, focused on designing and creating user-centered experiences through agile methodologies. They have in their portfolio a proven track-record of extraordinary deliveries of digital, user-friendly, credit underwriting platforms. This will help Avista strengthen its already top-tier tech team in order to speed up its automatization and risk processes and improve product development to continue expanding its users base.
