Elevate Announces New Financing Facility for Non-Prime Credit Product
Elevate Credit, Inc., a top provider for credit solutions marketed for non-prime individuals, announced Wednesday a $50 million financing facility, which may increase to $100 million, according to a company press release. The funding is to grow the Today Card, a credit card designed to expand access to credit while promoting intelligent credit decisions for people with less than perfect credit scores.
Financing for the Today Card will come from Park Cities, an asset management and alternative investment company that provides flexible debt solutions to its customers. The partnership will help reduce the amount of capital required by Elevate for the project.
“The Today Card has seen outsized demand and has been the fastest growing brand over the last 12 months,” said Elevate CEO, Jason Harvison. “To continue that growth, we have announced a new lower cost credit facility. Park Cities has demonstrated a deep understanding of our space. I am pleased to both diversify our financing and promote our platform’s ability to serve non-prime consumers at even lower APRs.”
Backed by Mastercard, Today Card offers all the benefits of a regular credit card to individuals who may not qualify for the same perks through other creditors. Family share, fraud control, and flexible payment options are all packaged into the Today Card product. These options will familiarize cardholders with these types of benefits should their credit improve in the future and they qualify for other cards with different banks.
“Elevate is changing the game for non-prime Americans. We are proud to partner with a mission driven organization and help enable their growth,” said Park Cities Managing Partner, Alex Dunev.
Elevate has originated $9.2 billion in non-prime credit to more than 2.6 million non-prime consumers to date, and has saved its customers more than $8.5 billion versus the cost of payday loans, according to the report. They already offer borrower incentives like reduced interest rates over time, free credit monitoring, and free financial training.Last modified: October 14, 2021
