The debt buying process is one that has traditionally been highly manual with Excel spreadsheets flying around and not much automation or sophistication. But that has started to change as fintech has come to debt buying and selling.
My next guest on the Fintech One-on-One podcast is Matthew Wratten, the CEO and founder of EverChain (formerly known as Debt Trader). EverChain has created a platform that allows debt buyers and sellers to manage their non-performing loans with a level of technology and compliance not before seen in the industry. In this podcast you will learn:
The founding story of EverChain.
The state of the debt buying industry today.
What was wrong with how the debt sales process worked historically.
How EverChain has made it easier.
What is involved in the onboarding process for lenders.
