OnDeck’s ODX to Power Digital Loan Origination for Investors Bank

Alternative lending platform OnDeck landed a new client for ODX, its digital loan origination platform. Investors Bank, with $27 billion in assets and 147 branches in New York and New Jersey, has become ODX’s newest partner.

ODX, an OnDeck subsidiary, is a platform-as-a-service that leverages software, insights, and human input to enable banks to automate small business lending. The offering, which launched a year ago, is as much about supporting banks to reach small business clients as it is about helping small businesses interact with their bank. ODX bank clients can offer small businesses a fully digital loan application and underwriting process that provides funding within 24 hours.

“As a leading small business [loan originations] platform, ODX provides proven technology and professional services that enables bank clients like Investors to offer credit to small businesses faster and more efficiently,” said Brian Geary, President of ODX. “That combination is mutually advantageous for the bank lender and the small business owner.”

Investors Bank joins PNC Bank and others as ODX clients. One of ODX’s original bank partners, JP Morgan Chase, made fintech headlines this summer when the bank announced plans to rescind the partnership.

OnDeck was founded in 2007 and has loaned more than $12 billion to small businesses in 700 different industries across the United States, Canada, and Australia since launch. The company demoed at FinovateSpring 2012 and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange with a market capitalization of $280 million.

Alternative small business lending platform OnDeck finalized its purchase of Canada-based small business lender Evolocity Financial Group. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“The closing of this transaction signals a new era of online lending innovation on behalf of Canada’s small businesses,” said Noah Breslow, CEO of OnDeck. “As one of Canada’s leading online lenders to the crucial small business sector, we are well-positioned to provide financing options that will benefit Canadian small business owners from coast to coast.”

Evolocity brings expertise in Canadian underwriting practices, as well as local business relationships and knowledge to the table. Combined with OnDeck’s marketing and international online lending experience, the two businesses will offer small businesses across Canada access to working capital finance solutions.

The combined companies will operate under the name and branding of OnDeck Canada, with Evolocity CEO Neil Wechsler serving as CEO of OnDeck Canada. Evolocity co-founders David Souaid and Harley Greenspoon will serve as chief revenue officer and chief operating officer, respectively.

OnDeck was founded in 2007 and has loaned more than $10 billion to small businesses in 700 different industries across the United States, Canada, and Australia since launch. The company leverages its OnDeck Score to underwrite loans and deliver funds to small businesses in as little as 24 hours.
