Prodigy Finance is a platform that enables financing for international postgraduate students at the world’s best universities, whilst delivering competitive financial and social returns to alumni, institutional and private investors.
This borderless and innovative model enables education loan financing to students from across the globe, whilst using predicted post-degree affordability rather than present-day salary. Since 2007, Prodigy Finance has processed over US$300 million through the platform to fund students from 118 nationalities, with exceptionally strong repayment rates.
Our team of 110 (and growing) is already truly global. Our head office is in London but the majority of the team is based in beautiful Cape Town. We also have an office in New York plus team members based across Europe and Asia.
We are funded by some of the best, pre-eminent institutions and entrepreneurs in the world.
