About ~2B adults in the world are unbanked, i.e., they practically cannot get any financial or insurance services from formal channels. The main alternative for the unbanked people to promote their life, acquire education, health services, etc. is to borrow loans from non-formal channels (P2P, NBFCs, NBFIs, etc.). Eighty-seven percent of current loans in emerging countries are received from such channels. Out of the only ~15% of loan requests confirmed, ~5% turn out to be defaults (i.e., non-paying loaners).

 

Facetrom has developed a pioneering technology that predicts the financial risk of a potential customer, requesting a loan. The company’s charter is helping underbanked people achieve loans and insurance, while assisting the financial institutes to largely decrease the percentage of defaults. Facetrom disregards all discriminating factors such as race, gender, age, demography, hair color and more. All images analyzed by Facetrom are anonymous, and data privacy of the subject is strictly maintained.

 

Facetrom is a startup located in the center of Tel Aviv. Our core technology is based upon computer vision (CV) algorithms and machine learning (ML). We are funded by two of the most influencing tech family offices in Israel, and by the owners of a large financial institute overseas.

Our current R&D team includes three PhDs (in evolutionary psychology, computer vision, electrical engineering) and software professionals, supported by external experts. We plan to triple the team in the upcoming year.
