Welcome to READ


READ is a tech startup that has developed a comprehensive consumer credit rating methodology analyzing financial vulnerabilities on the basis of relevant economic risk indicators.


OUR GOAL

To offer an accurate assessment of default risk while promoting sustainable capital access for consumers at fair costs.


FOUNDING IDEA

We were inspired by the desire to find a sustainable solution for student debt ridden Millennials in the USA.


AMBITION

Introduce a transparent pricing mechanism to the consumer credit industry which can be applied to any unsecured consumer credit market – in the US and beyond.

Our model


To understand consumer credit risk, one must understand the actual financial situation and arising cash flow vulnerabilities of the borrower.


OUR APPROACH

Disposable income after cost-of-living, income risk, liquidity reserves and leverage are at the heart of assessing debt sustainability. By calculating real-world risk factors of households, we offer an alternative assessment to existing credit score systems.


OUR SOLUTIONS

With households being at the core of our methodology, we provide a comprehensive financial health check & relevant guidance. For financial professionals and lenders we aggregate & process the data to provide an indication of the real risk of capital in a portfolio context.
