              • Company DescriptionABOUT ALIYAFounded in January 2015, Aliya Financial Technologies (Aliya) is a financial technology company founded and fully funded by the industry's leading innovators, engineers, and investment managers, whose successful careers have spanned from world-class companies like Google, Cisco Systems, and Hewlett-Packard to Capital One, IBM Watson, Moore Capital, Credit Suisse, Dentsu, USAA, and the NFL. We are headquartered in Stamford, CT, with an additional office in Austin, TX.Using machine learning and big data analytics, we enable banks and other financial institutions to create deeper, more profitable lending relationships with their existing underserved customers, while helping millions of hardworking Americans gain access to credit at fair, transparent pricing. Our proprietary credit policy is in pilot with a top 10 U.S. bank and has been reviewed by OCC.OUR MISSIONOur mission is to positively impact the financial well-being of every hardworking American by giving them access to less expensive, more transparent loans and other financial products, thereby positively impacting society as a whole.OUR VALUESRELENTLESS pursuit of our mission. We believe nothing is impossible—obstacles are meant to be overcome. We encourage and reward those who push the team to the limit in pursuit of our mission.COLLABORATIVE—We are a company run by ideas, and we believe ideas flourish in a team environment. For us, team always comes first.EMPATHETIC—We are obsessed with ensuring that our partners have the best partner experience possible.HONEST—We are honest with our partners. We provide our partners with complete transparency in our decisioning process and pricing of our services and products.MISSION-ORIENTED—When our partners do well, we do well and celebrate our success. We exhibit bias-to-action and perform consistently. Our colleagues can rely on us to deliver.INNOVATIVE—We are financial markets innovators and talented engineers who believe that creativity and imagination are critical to intelligent risk-taking.COMMUNITY—We are committed to our Aliya family, culture, and values, and take care of each other. We also strive to positively impact the communities around us through service, fundraising, and community outreach efforts.OPPORTUNITYFor many U.S. households, the ability to borrow is an essential tool. Access to credit can help individuals and families weather financial shocks, smooth income fluctuations, build a positive credit history, and facilitate wealth-building purchases—all of which are key to overall financial health.The American middle class is suffering because they have very limited or no access to credit. Credit, when allocated responsibly and designed to fit the borrower’s needs, is the most powerful means of improving one’s standard of living. The problem is that banks cannot lend to almost 70% of their customer base because they cannot do so profitably.Aliya can help banks and financial institutions overcome this significant barrier through big data analytics, technology, and non-traditional sources of risk capital.We believe that a FICO score of 600 is not always a 600. Current credit scoring models are often outdated and inaccurate, falsely boxing in customers as non-prime when they can perform as near-prime/prime. We have developed a proprietary selection model and credit policy, which has been proven to expand financial institutions’ lending population by 30% or more. The estimated annual market opportunity is approximately $500 billion of consumer prime and non-prime unsecured loans.
