Splash Financial

The Story of Splash Financial: We got tired of seeing our friends and family struggle under the crushing weight of debt. So, in 2013 we did something about it. We built a marketplace filled with banks and credit unions looking to help people refinance their student loans. We used that network to bring people great rates. And we did it all from a tiny office in Cleveland, OH. In other words: we started Splash Financial. Since then, we’ve become a national leader in student loan refinancing. We’ve opened over 100,000 accounts and handled over $6 billion in refinancing requests. Plus, we’ve successfully launched personal loans, with the same commitment of service to our customers. At the end of the day, we’re still that little company from Cleveland with a big dream: to make people more powerful than their debt.
