Ready To Get Down to Business
Welcome to Peerform.
Although we have been in the peer lending world for some time, we have been flying under the radar screen, so you may not be too familiar with us. Hopefully, that’s about to change in a big way.
For better or worse, we are perfectionists who chose not to fully launch our platform until we got it right. So after a lengthy period of planning, research and countless coffee runs, Peerform is now ready to get down to business.
If you are thinking about applying for a peer-based loan or simply wondering if you have any other options besides the usual bank and credit card suspects, you have more choices out there than ever before. That’s a great thing, but with all of the options available, how can you find the best choice for you?
Here are some things to keep in mind about Peerform as you undertake your quest for a lending partner:
1) We are proud to be a New York born and bred company. Sure, we like Silicon Valley, but our approach is grounded in the financial services innovation movement happening right now in the Big Apple.
2) Not everyone can be a credit score valedictorian. In fact, we think that this country is full of credit worthy people who deserve a loan at a great rate, even if their credit score isn’t perfect. Many of these people face the bad choice between not obtaining credit or securing credit at outrageous rates. We think that’s a raw deal and are committed to doing something about it.
3) At Peerform, the borrower isn’t just a cog in the wheel. Our CEO and co-founder, Mikael Rapaport, launched Peerform after he observed how banks stopped caring about doing business with everyday people. His mission was to put the borrower’s needs first. No matter what the future holds for us, we will not forget our core mission.
2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for us. We hope that after evaluating all of the choices out there, you will give us a shot to become your partner.
