. Artificial intelligence loan platform upstart listed on NASDAQ
On December 16, 2020, U.S. local time, upstart, a financial technology startup, was officially listed on NASDAQ (Stock Code: upst). Upstart connects borrowers with bank partners through its online platform and assists in loan decision-making through artificial intelligence technology. Compared with the traditional credit system which relies heavily on FICO score, upstart will also include variables such as education and employment history, cost of living, bank account transaction information and other variables into the decision-making scope, so as to help borrowing users obtain more loans at lower interest rates without reducing risk. Previously, the stock price performance of online loan platforms, including lending club, greensky and elevate, has not been satisfactory after their listing. However, it remains to be seen whether upstart’s banking partners and artificial intelligence advantages can make it stand out.
