New York, Feb. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PeerIQ, a leading provider of data and analytics for the online lending sector, today announced that Freedom Financial Asset Management, a subsidiary of Freedom Financial Network and one of the fastest growing marketplace lending platforms offering unsecured consumer debt, has adopted the PeerIQ Analytics Platform for enhanced loan data management, reporting, and portfolio analysis—for use by both Freedom’s capital markets team and institutional buyers of Freedom loans. 

By adopting PeerIQ’s platform, Freedom Financial will leverage PeerIQ’s full suite of tools: investor dashboards, loan surveillance, portfolio benchmarking, automated reporting, credit facility monitoring, ca­­­­­sh flow analytics, and loan performance modeling.   Moreover, PeerIQ will offer the same tools for institutional investors to streamline diligence of Freedom’s loan data and monitor existing loan portfolios. 

Finally, Freedom has tapped PeerIQ to serve as the independent “fair value” valuation provider for its asset management arm.  Drawing upon its deep experience in credit and lending, including its strategic data partnership with TransUnion, PeerIQ launched its valuation service last year.

“At Freedom Financial, we’re constantly looking to better serve our institutional investors,” said Joseph Toms, President of Freedom Financial Asset Management.  “Our partnership with PeerIQ allows us—and our investors—to access high-quality data and powerful tools to drive actionable insight.  We considered multiple service providers, but selected PeerIQ due to the maturity of their solution set, as well as the hands-on credit experience and quantitative pedigree of the team.”

“We’re excited to be working so deeply with Freedom Financial,” said Ram Ahluwalia, CEO of PeerIQ. “This represents a key milestone for PeerIQ and validation that our integrated approach to product design best meets the needs of originators and investors alike.”
