Prodigy Finance was born in 2007, as the founders lamented the challenges faced by international postgraduate students in financing their business school degrees. From the outset, we have focused on social impact.
Traditional lenders use credit history to assess risk which varies from country-to-country and is rarely transferable if you move abroad. To resolve this and support students looking to study abroad, we developed a borderless risk algorithm using future earning potential, home credit history and many additional data points to create a unique and holistic profile of each applicant. This means we can offer cross-borders loans at competitive interest rates, without requiring collateral or a co-signer.
Prodigy Finance raises funding for our loans from several investor sources, including community investors, institutional funding, and other private investors with an interest in higher education. These funds are sent directly to the education institution, via an Irish Stock Exchange listed bond. Click here to learn more.
Our pioneering credit model determines the creditworthiness of each application; and our credit committee assess numerous variables such as the school’s requirements, student’s credit history, outstanding liabilities, savings, pre-study salary and expected salary post-graduation amongst many others. As a result, the interest rate we offer is tailored to the individual applicant.
