(Bloomberg) -- Fintech Fundbox Inc. has raised $176 million in a new funding round from investors including Allianz SE and General Catalyst. The company plans to announce the funding on Tuesday, along with a new $150 million credit facility. A Fundbox spokesman said the new round valued the company at between $500 million and $1 billion, but would not disclose the exact valuation. The San Francisco-based startup is both a lender and a payments processor for small businesses. It uses artificial intelligence to assess the creditworthiness of potential borrowers, collecting data from other software and services used by the business, as well as their bank accounts.The platform also facilitates quick payments to the borrower’s suppliers. “We are focused on unlocking the working capital that’s tied up in unpaid invoices," Chief Operating Officer Prashant Fuloria said. By using Fundbox, “the seller gets paid right away," he added.Fundbox plans to use the fresh funding to hire employees in its engineering team and to expand the number of platforms it works with. The company will use the credit facility to lend directly to customers, Fuloria said.The business-to-business fintech lending industry has piqued the interest of entrepreneurs and investors in recent months. Other players include fast-growing Brex Inc., which offers quick credit decisions and credit cards for startups, also using non-traditional metrics. Jack Dorsey’s Square Inc., too, lends money to its small business customers.“There will always be competition where people flood the same customers,” said Joseph Engelhart, chief investment officer of Allianz X, the insurer’s investment arm. “What we like is the underlying technology where we think they still have an edge in extending credit to the right people.”Investors in Fundbox’s latest round include Allianz, Hamilton Lane Inc. and Synchrony Financial. It also saw participation from existing VCs including Khosla Ventures and Spark Capital Growth. The company declined to disclose which investors provided the credit facility. Amazon.com Inc.’s Jeff Bezos and celebrity venture capitalist Ashton Kutcher are also investors in the company, but did not participate in the most recent round. The startup has raised $300 million in funding so far.\--With assistance from Yaacov Benmeleh.To contact the reporter on this story: Ed Ludlow in San Francisco at firstname.lastname@example.orgTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Anne VanderMey at email@example.com, ;Mark Milian at firstname.lastname@example.org, Andrew PollackFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

Data shows that if you want to generate alpha and outperform the major indexes, some of the top stocks to buy are companies that practice gender diversity.Catalyst, the global nonprofit dedicated to building workplaces for women that work, has done exhaustive research into why diversity and inclusion matter. Among its findings: * Companies pay something of a self-imposed penalty for lack of diversity. That is, those companies that poorly practice gender and ethnic/cultural diversity were 29% less likely to experience profitability above the industry average. * A study of U.S. companies in the MSCI World Index between 2011 and 2016 found that "companies beginning with at least three women on their boards produced median gains of 10% ROE and 37% Earnings Per Share" over the five-year period. Companies with fewer women on their boards delivered less growth in these two important metrics. * A 2016 study by Intel and Dalberg Global Development Advisors found that tech companies that practiced diversity had higher revenues, profits, and market value than those that didn't. According to the study, diversity was worth $320 billion-$390 billion in increased market value by closing the gender gap in leadership.In short, investing in gender-diverse stocks isn't just a moral stance - it's financially rewarding. For investors looking for ways to get in, here are 10 top stocks that show gender diversity counts. SEE ALSO: All 30 Dow Stocks Ranked: The Analysts Weigh In
