We are LendKey
See how we empower lenders every day
We founded our company in 2009 after the Great Recession, during a difficult time for financial institutions facing the triple threat of high capital requirements, increased regulatory scrutiny and nascent fintech companies focused on disrupting banks and credit unions.
We invested $30 million dollars to create and continually innovate a lending-as-a-service platform to help lenders—our customers—build and run a profitable digital lending business.
We had the foresight to recognize that financial services firms needed a reliable partner that could become integral to their business success. We have been steadfast in our commitment to provide a service that strengthens our partners that are focused on Main Street and our local communities nationwide.
Today we’re the end-to-end digital lending partner to hundreds of banks and credit unions, from delivering new customers and members to servicing throughout the life of a loan. Lenders now can offer credit products online in an efficient, secure way, and give borrowers a seamless digital lending experience.
We’ve deployed more than $3.1 billion in lending capital and serviced more than $2.0 billion in loans on behalf of hundreds of banks and credit unions. In all, more than 99,000 consumers have had their financing needs met through lenders that partner with LendKey.
