Nova Credit: Helping Immigrants Realize the American Dream


FEATURING: Misha Esipov, Co-Founder & CEO at Nova Credit

More than one million immigrants arrive in the U.S. every year, and it is predicted that immigration will drive 82% of new population growth by 2050. Yet, the lack of domestic credit history limits access to financial services, housing and even employment.

Award-winning fintech Nova Credit helps newcomers and other global citizens apply for financial services using their credit history from countries around the world, providing access to the products and services most of us take for granted.

We are very fortunate to have Misha Esipov, Co-Founder & CEO at Nova Credit on the Banking Transformed podcast. He will discuss the origination of this innovative service and the growth that has been achieved since Nova Credit’s founding.
