CapBay, a Malaysian multi-bank supply chain finance and peer-to-peer financing (P2P) platform, announced that it has disbursed over RM1 billion in P2P funding to more than 400 underserved SMEs in Malaysia.

CapBay said that it has a default rate of less than 0.1%.
Moreover, CapBay’s has developed an Auto Invest feature that automatically diversifies investors’ portfolios, enhancing the safety of P2P investments and ensuring healthy returns.
CapBay was also one of the key P2P platforms that helped to drive the Malaysia Co-Investment Fund (MyCIF) programme, which has collectively co-invested over RM540 million, benefiting at least 3,500 MSMEs.
The government had allocated RM40 million to the MyCIF as part of Budget 2023, recognising the significance of alternative financing in the Malaysian economy.
CapBay Group, which includes its multi-bank SCF platform and Islamic factoring house, has provided a total of over RM2.5 billion in financing, helping over 1,600 businesses through its alternative financing solutions.
