Wisr’s CEO Anthony Nantes said: “These increases over the most recent quarter, reflects the new brand positioning, updated strategy and ongoing improvements to Wisr’s loan assessment, underwriting and technology platform.

“We have spent the past 12 months refocusing, rebranding and restructuring the business for long-term growth.

“The rapid increase in our loan origination volumes is a testament to the work done by the team to re-launch the company.

“Combined with the significant increase in the effectiveness of our algorithms to auto-process more enquiries, and the impact of our re-brand, the company now has an amazing foundation from which to grow over the coming years.”
