Mogo Finance Group announces corporate brand change

Mogo Finance Group, parent company of AS “mogo”, announces its corporate name change, becoming Eleving Group. AS “mogo” remains as Latvian business entity brand as well as a product brand represented in all vehicle finance markets on the Eleving Group`s portfolio.

 

“What once was a one-brand company focused on car finance now has become a global multi-brand group with several lines of business and multiple brands across its vehicle and consumer financing products. A corporate brand change was a logical step in the evolution of the company, capturing the company's revised focus on sustainability and an ESG mindset. These changes were necessary to continue the Group`s international growth, accompanied by a revised mission in all elements of the brand,” explains Modestas Sudnius, CEO of Eleving Group.

 

Since its formation in 2012, the company has evolved from a Latvia-based start-up into an international group offering a wide range of financial solutions in 14 countries around the world. Eleving Group aims to make an impact and relevance beyond day-to-day operations for all stakeholders involved. Therefore new brand name derives from the verb “to elevate”, reflecting the company`s efforts to provide financial inclusion to diverse communities around the world by creating access to innovative and sustainable financial solutions.

The Group`s revenues continued to improve, reaching 33.6 million, while EBITDA grew by 65% to 14.5 million, which was driven by a sustained focus on the most profitable markets and more optimal organisational structure. Net profit before forex increased to 3.4 million, which was driven by revenue growth and prudent loan portfolio quality control.
