I first arrived in this country as an immigrant back in 1991. I tried to apply for a credit card and was rejected. Multiple times. The reality was that my stellar credit history in Australia was meaningless in this country. Our next guest on the Lend Academy Podcast is trying to solve this problem. They […] The post Podcast 118: Misha Esipov of Nova Credit appeared first on Lend Academy.

Equipment finance is one of the largest verticals with around $1 trillion in financing happening every year. We have never had a show dedicated to this space until now.

Even people who have never heard of fintech are aware of FICO scores. The three digit number that denotes credit worthiness has been part of our financial lives for decades. What people may not be aware of, even within fintech though, is the sophistication of the company behind the FICO score. The reality is that […] The post Podcast 116: Scott Zoldi of FICO appeared first on Lend Academy.

My very first trip to China back in 2014 was because of an invitation to speak at event hosted by Greg Gibb of Lufax in Beijing.

I am truly fascinated by the work that many companies are doing in the developing world. The challenges are greater but in many ways the rewards can be greater as well. Certainly, when an innovative company creates a successful operation in the developing world the impact on society can be profound.

Credit card companies used to market heavily on college campuses offering all kinds of freebies in return for a completed card application. The Credit CARD Act of 2009 stopped that practice. What this has meant is that students have seen their access to credit curtailed sharply and their ability to start building credit postponed until they’re older.

Non-accredited investors have always had fewer investment options than accredited investors. That is starting to improve as some companies take advantage of a law called Regulation A+, created as part of the JOBS Act, to do offerings to the general public.

The word “insurtech” has only been part of the vernacular for a very short time – just a couple of years really. Short for insurance technology it reflects a growing area of innovation happening in the insurance industry today. Insurtech has quickly become one of the hot new areas of fintech with dozens of startups attracting […] The post Podcast 109: Matthew Wong of CB Insights on Insurtech appeared first on Lend Academy.

We are almost ten years removed from the financial crisis but some of the broader issues that came up back then have still not been resolved. The data was not standard, there was little transparency and most investors had no clue as to the details of the underlying loans that were in these securitizations that were underperforming.

In this country there have been three main credit bureaus, Experian, Equifax and TransUnion, for many decades. These companies provide most of the consumer data that lenders use today to make a credit decision. However, there are other bureaus that cover different niches within the consumer space and one such company is Clarity Services.

Residential real estate is the oldest and most established of all asset classes. And yet, when it comes to owning equity in homes, that has only ever been available to the individual homeowners.

It was in June of 2015 when we first learned that Goldman Sachs was planning to launch a consumer lending platform.

The CFPB estimates there are 45 million adults in the US today who have little or no credit history. Consequently, these people are terribly underserved by traditional finance.

For many years we have focused on three asset classes in online lending: real estate, small business and consumer loans. There are, of course, many other related or sub-asset classes. One such asset class is litigation finance, something we have not covered on Lend Academy until now.
