Your gateway to smarter SME lending

At Wiserfunding, we understand that the world of SME lending is both complex and rewarding. That's why we've meticulously crafted a suite of solutions for banks seeking to supercharge their SME lending strategies.

 At Wiserfunding, we understand the challenges of breaking away from the norm. Yet, we firmly believe that in embracing innovation, there's an opportunity to redefine success, elevate efficiency, and pioneer the future of SME lending. By partnering with us, you're not just adopting a solution; you're ushering in a new era of banking brilliance. 

Expertise in SME risk

Our journey began with the vision of Professor Ed Altman, an icon in credit risk analytics. Over two decades, we've fine-tuned our models, and these aren't your run-of-the-mill models. They've been through rigorous audits and have powered renowned banks like SBI and ABSA. We've mastered the art of SME lending risk assessment.

Predictive insights

In today's data-rich world, raw data alone won't cut it. Our secret weapon? Advanced AI and machine learning algorithms that transform data into actionable, predictive insights. Say goodbye to sifting through endless spreadsheets – our models make your risk management team's job more effective and efficient.

Unparalleled support

We're not just a tech provider; we're your partner in success. Our dedicated account and customer success managers are there for you every step of the way. Need to chat with our product or development teams? You've got direct access for tailored support.

Long-term viability

Innovation is our middle name. We've evolved with the industry, launching game-changers like our portfolio management product. Backed by reputable investors like BGF and trusted by high-profile clients like LHV, we're in it for the long haul as your trusted partner.

Flexible pricing

We understand the importance of cost-effectiveness. While we might be a touch pricier for UK reports, our analytics' depth and actionable quality make it a justified investment. We're all about scaling with your business.

Seamless integration

Our full API documentation ensures a smooth transition. Some banks have completed integration in less than three hours, and training? That can be wrapped up in under an hour. It's that easy.

Compliance and security

Your data's security is non-negotiable, and we get that. We proudly hold ISO27001 and SOC2 certifications, providing the highest levels of data protection and regulatory compliance. Rest easy knowing your data is in safe hands.

Native integrations

We value seamless connectivity and strategic alliances. Our native integrations with industry leaders like nCino, Codat, and Validis ensure you have the most comprehensive suite of tools at your disposal.

Insightful perspective, leading technology

By amalgamating state-of-the-art technology with over 70 years of expertise, Wiserfunding furnishes you with unparalleled insights into the SME credit lifecycle. Our solutions are engineered to draw out the true worth from raw and unstructured data, providing you with a crystal-clear understanding of companies, sectors, and the broader market landscape.
Our comprehensive platform provides banks with the oversight they require to make judicious assessments. From screening applications to ongoing portfolio monitoring and regulatory reporting, Wiserfunding has all aspects covered.

Expertise driven analytics

Traditional credit referencing agencies often rely on simple credit scores and historical financial data. In contrast, Wiserfunding has worked in collaboration with Professor Ed Altman, a global leader in credit risk analytics.


We've used this expertise to refine our algorithms over two decades of SME data, giving us a unique edge in predictive risk analysis. Our models aren't just looking at the past; they're designed to anticipate future risks, making them far more actionable.

Depth and breadth of data

We harness the power of AI and Machine Learning to digest and assess a wealth of data points that go beyond the traditional financial metrics.  This includes non-traditional data sources like social media sentiment and other alternative data which can be pivotal in SME lending.
In effect, you're not just getting a snapshot of an SMEs financial health; you’re getting a full, dynamically updated portrait.

The quality of predictive insight

Traditional agencies often provide raw data, leaving the interpretation work to you. Wiserfunding takes it a step further by offering predictive insights based on our sophisticated algorithms.
This means that instead of just knowing where a company has been, you'll have a reliable projection of where it’s headed, allowing for more strategic decision-making.

Audited and trusted

Unlike many traditional solutions, our models have undergone rigorous auditing and have been used to create bespoke solutions for respected banks like SBI and ABSA. This is not a 'one-size-fits-all' model but a tailored analytical tool, fine-tuned to meet the demands of modern SME lending.

Traditional credit agencies tend to offer more generalised solutions, which may not delve into the specifics of the SME sector. Wiserfunding is geared precisely for this, allowing for nuanced decisions that can be critical in SME lending.

By embracing Wiserfunding, you're not just replacing one credit agency for another; you're upgrading your entire approach to credit risk analysis. Our method moves beyond traditional data evaluation, offering predictive, nuanced, and actionable insights tailor-made for the complexities of SME lending.
