The Alternative Credit Bureau Ranks as Fastest-Growing Private Company for Third Time
ATLANTA (Aug. 18, 2016) – FactorTrust, The Alternative Credit Bureau, announces it was ranked as one of the country’s fastest growing private companies by the Inc. 5000. Not only was the company the only private, alternative credit bureau to make the list, it was also ranked the eighth fastest-growing financial services firm in Georgia.
The current year has brought tremendous growth for FactorTrust due to industry growth and better recognition of the impact of alternative credit data for assessing the creditworthiness of underbanked consumers. Part of the growth has been a result of the compliance needs set forth by a Proposed Rule from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). To date in 2016, the company has doubled its employee base and released two new products, LendProtect ATR and LendProtect MLA, which both focus on lender compliance. Additional product launches are planned for later this year.
“Our ability to thrive in a competitive market is grounded in our team’s foresight and aptitude for understanding our customers’ needs and innovating to meet those needs,” states Greg Rable, FactorTrust CEO. “In a highly-regulated market, it’s imperative that both lenders and service providers stay nimble. This ability to pivot not only benefits lenders, but offers consumers better credit options, as well.”
This marks the third Inc. 5000 ranking for FactorTrust, which is in good company. Inc. reports the 2016 Inc. 5000 is the most competitive crop in the list’s history. The average company on the list achieved an astounding three-year growth rate of 433 percent.
