VANCOUVER, Aug. 20, 2019 /CNW/ - Mogo Inc. (TSX: MOGO) (NASDAQ: MOGO) ("Mogo" or the "Company"), one of Canada's leading financial technology companies, today announced it has surpassed the 900,000 member milestone as it continues to establish itself as an increasingly important part of millennials' financial lives.
"We have invested more than $200 million to date in our platform which, along with our $300 million marketing partnership with Canada's largest news media company, is driving strong member growth," said David Feller, Mogo's Founder and CEO. "Importantly, this growth is being led by the desirable millennial segment, which represents 65% of our new member additions. As we continue to improve the experience and deliver more value to our members, we are seeing increased engagement and member growth. Given the challenge millennials have with managing their financial health, we believe our growth continues to be driven by executing on our mission of making it easy and engaging for our members to improve their financial health."
Greg Feller, President & CFO, added: "We continue to see opportunities to increase our average revenue per member of more than $70 today, including the expected impact of new fee-based lending revenue from our partner lending platform and the upcoming Mogo Platinum Prepaid Visa® Card roll-out."
