How a new Canadian fintech company is redefining personal lending

For far too long now (For 60 years to be exact.) people all over Canada. – have found themselves in need of credit, but unable to access it because of their credit history.

A very old one-liner goes, “In order to borrow money from the bank you have to be able to prove that you don’t need it!” and for many centuries this held true. Getting a loan was based on reputation and the perceived ability (and desire) to repay any loan made to you. Potential lenders looked at you – you as a person, your business, your history, often your family – and then they made what became known as a ‘value judgment’. Were you ‘good’ for the money you requested? If the answer was yes, you got your cash!

However, in 1956, two guys in the US - Bill Fair and Earl Isaac – got together to form a company called Fair, Isaac & Co. eventually known simply as FICO, with the idea of creating an easy and straightforward system, based on real numbers, that would help banks and other lenders to work out more easily who they could ‘comfortably’ lend money to.

However, these days, when you go to them and ask for a loan, though they still look at you as a person and think of you as a customer, they also look at your credit score, and that is often the deciding factor. However, ‘The times they are a changing’ as Robert Zimmerman once, most poetically, observed.

A Canadian Fintech Company Redefining Personal Lending

Today, a few new companies have realized that huge numbers of potential clients simply cannot get access to the money they need. These companies, with better technology and understanding of the market are coming to the aid of millions of Canadians.

iCASH, a Canadian financial technology business is disrupting the consumer lending market. They have introduced a revolutionary technology-driven but human-oriented decision-making process through which consumers are able to obtain short-term loans quickly and easily, regardless of their credit rating or credit history.
