As noted in the update, inflation is here. As a result, emergency borrowing “is going to be more and more necessary across the UK.” Yet most options “come with confusing terms, high costs and risks of debt spirals.”
At Creditspring, they’re on a mission “to make emergency borrowing safer, simpler, and less stressful.” They do this by “removing interest charges that can spiral out of control and swap them for a fixed monthly membership fee.”
By removing interest rates, they “offer two unique value propositions that very few other lenders can claim, 1) It’s very easy to evaluate the true cost of borrowing and 2) Your costs will never increase, meaning no more risks of a debt spiral.”
While their no-interest loans are our USP, “that’s not all.” They support members “along the way with personalised scores, financial education, credit building and more.”
More than just a lender, a Creditspring is “as an operating system for people who want to improve their finances.”
Creditspring mainly “generates revenues from membership fees.” They reportedly “have 4 membership plans, with 3 of them paid (Step, Core, Plus) and one free (Silver).”
99% of their revenues “come from the above membership fees right now, but we see potential in future platform fees connected to our Stability Hub.”
The company “projects a gross profit (what is left of revenues after taking out funding costs and credit losses) on the past 34 consecutive lending cohorts.”
