Financial services comparison site SuperMoney is venturing into new territory this week with the launch of its student loan refinancing comparison marketplace. And since student loans are the largest source of unsecured debt in the U.S., with outstanding loan amounts totaling $1.53 trillion, now is as good a time as ever for the new endeavor.
The new marketplace aims to help students make smarter decisions when refinancing their existing student loans. By submitting a single application, users can receive actual rate quotes in real time from multiple lenders, including LendKey, CommonBond, and SoFi. Each offer transparently shows users a breakdown of monthly costs, payments, and fees so that they can make the best decision based on their circumstances.
The free process takes seconds and won’t hurt applicants’ credit scores. And unlike other loan offer aggregation sites, SuperMoney doesn’t harvest and sell applicant information.
Founded in 2013, SuperMoney offers a range of widgets to help users find the right tools to achieve their financial goals. Users can compare mortgage offers, credit cards, loan offers, and annual percentage yields on savings and checking accounts. The company’s CEO, Miron Lulic, recently showcased at FinovateSpring 2018, where he demoed SuperMoney’s No-Fee Financing Platform that offers merchants access to turnkey financing that can help save them up to 10% on discount rate fees.
Today’s announcement comes just a couple of months after SuperMoney’s last product launch— an auto loan comparison engine. The tools allow prospective borrowers to use a single platform to compare between secured and unsecured loans, refinancing, and private party auto loans. Also this fall, the company announced it has surpassed $1 billion in financing requests to lenders via its platform.
