Unlock millions of new customers

Traditional credit underwriting practices exclude millions of consumers from financial products and services, and provide an incomplete risk profile for mainstream consumers. Nova Credit helps businesses access trusted financial data to confidently serve these consumers with credit cards, personal loans, auto loans, student loans, and more.

Everyone Benefits

Expand into untapped consumer segments

Credit excluded consumers are as diverse as the population. These consumers are underserved not because they are high risk, but because the traditional credit system can’t consistently assess their potential risk. Lenders who improve their underwriting strategies to be first in wallet will be rewarded with loyal and often lifetime consumers.

10 Million

Recent immigrants seeking ~5 credit products

50 Million

No-file or thin-file customers, like Gen Z and Millennials, seeking their first credit card, loan, or secondary education

Working with Nova Credit

We're removing a barrier for millions of newcomers to the U.S. who arrive and instantly lose access to the credit history they built elsewhere.

It's challenging to underwrite an applicant without knowing their credit history and the absence of a credit identity can make significant transactions, like getting a credit card, very difficult. Nova Credit's Credit Passport® helps American Express give people access to their international credit data so that they can arrive and thrive in this country.”
