SHANGHAI, China, Aug. 07, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 360 Finance, Inc.

“360 Finance was founded on the belief that we should enable financial institutions to provide better and targeted products and services to a broader consumer base through our leading digital platform. As we maintained strong growth momentum in recent years, a significant and increasing proportion of our business has already been derived from technology enabling services that we provide to our institutional partners. This proposed name change reflects such trend and better represents our long term strategic positioning in the market,” commented Mr. Hongyi Zhou, Chairman of the Board of Directors of 360 Finance. “The proposed name ‘360 DigiTech’ stands for ‘digital technology in all angles,’ which aligns with our mission to technology-empower our institutional partners and consumers with more efficient and effective platform services covering the entire consumer finance cycle from market-orientated product innovation, data-driven marketing, AI-empowered risk management, and transaction focused ecosystem.”
