Vertical: Data and Analytics; Financial Education and Inclusion
Wiserfunding is a London-based FinTech company specialised in assessing the credit risk of small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Through our online platform, we allow businesses looking to obtain finance or lenders and insurers looking to assess the risk of business applicants to get more accurate data in order to make better decisions quicker than ever before. Wiserfunding provides SMEs across Europe with a credit score based on past financial history and a range of publicly available structured and unstructured data. We are honoured to have Professor Edward Altman as founder. Ed was one of the pioneers of credit risk analytics back in the 60s and inventor of the Z-score. Wiserfunding leverages on his skills and expertise to provide lenders, investors and SMEs with the most accurate, credible and independent risk assessment. Our team brings together the leading experts of SME modelling and SME financing from across the world. We have developed a new Z-Score, specific for SMEs, built on the foundations of Ed’s pioneer Z-Score model. Our unique models are segmented by country and industry sector to maximise their prediction power. Wiserfunding works closely, both with traditional sources of finance such as banks, new and alternative financing providers and insurance companies. Our ultimate objective is to become the market standard for SME risk assessment in Europe.
