Learn about Strategic Link’s newest business partner, Zest AI, an award-winning solution to help support fair lending.
Zest AI helps lenders make better decisions and better loans—increasing revenue, reducing risk, and automating compliance. We were founded in 2009 with the mission of making fair and transparent credit available to everyone and are now a leader in software for more inclusive underwriting.
Zest’s AI-driven lending software helps financial institutions go beyond traditional credit scores’ statistical and data limitations to identify good borrowers often overlooked by legacy techniques. Credit unions that lend using Zest-built models have seen on average 25% increases in approval rates with no added risk and five-fold increases in automated approvals by using more of their data and the advanced math of machine learning.
