FT. LEE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Continuing its strong record of growth, Cross River, a leader in the emerging Fintech industry, announced today that it has set a new monthly loan origination record of more than $600 million in April.
“Cross River has established strong operational efficiencies and compliance oversight to meet the growth of our partners,” says Kathy Nelson, Cross River’s COO.
The loan origination achievement puts Cross River’s growth into impressive context – the April 2018 volume represents approximately 60% growth in loan origination from April 2017, and keeps Cross River on pace to exceed $7 billion in loan originations for 2018.
Cross River currently partners with 14 Marketplace Lending (MPL) platforms to originate loans across the United States through its focus on best-in-class technology and compliance. As the bank approaches its 10-year anniversary, it continues to build on its mission to enable technology companies to provide financial solutions to the broader market.
Geoff Kott, Head of Finance and Strategy at Cross River added, “Cross River provides a complete suite of innovative products and services including automated underwriting and compliance technology solutions, balance sheet capacity and diversification options to our partners which enables them to focus on their growth.”
The record-setting loan origination figure adds to an impressive list of performance milestones over the past year that has helped Cross River firmly establish itself as the preeminent force in the Fintech industry.
The growth in loan origination follows on a number of other impressive recent achievements, which were recognized last month at the annual LendIt Fintech Industry conference, where, for the second consecutive year, Cross River was awarded “Most Innovative Bank.” LendIt is the world’s largest annual event focused on financial services innovation.
“We are proud to be able to provide access to credit to millions of Americans in a compliant, safe and sound manner through uniquely designed partnerships with our marquis clients. The bank is well positioned to continue its impressive growth with a combination of robust compliance, technology and strong risk management,” said Adam Goller, Head of Strategic Partnerships for Cross River.
