Despite the abundance of banks and NBFCs in the Indian marketspace, there is a lot of foreboding associated with obtaining personal loans. Either people find it hard to secure one or choose the wrong one, and end up in big disarray. To fix this conundrum, Naresh Rajaraman and Gurumoorthy started Fincover, whose vision was to simplify finance and make it available for everyone
There are many instances where people miss out on potential finance opportunities. Fincover is here to seal the gap, and ensure no eligible person misses access to finance. Started in the year 2020 amidst pandemic, Fincover was started with an objective to simplify finance. An all-in-one-finance-platform, Fincover distributes various financial products like Loans, Insurance, and Investment products like Mutual Funds under one roof. Despite the abundance of loan aggregator sites, what sets Fincover is their extensive use of cutting technologies like AI and machine learning.
Gurumoorthy, Founder at Fincover says “The traditional banking system has time and again found it difficult to reach the masses completely. There are many people who get lost because of the excessive bureaucracy and redtape. The idea behind Fincover, is to make people financially aware by making it simple and accessible. Technology has aided our goal in a great way”
Fincover has partnered with India’s leading banks, insurers, Mutual Fund houses to effectively distribute their products. They have a team of 150+ marketing these products through various channels and have also hired a number of Point of Sale Person (POSPs) to reach out to customers directly.
In the rapidly evolving financial landscape, companies are leveraging the power of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to revolutionize the way loans are distributed. These advanced technologies enable a more sophisticated analysis of vast and complex datasets, allowing for more accurate risk assessment and personalized lending decisions.

This nuanced approach goes beyond traditional credit scoring models, providing a more holistic and real-time evaluation of a borrower’s financial situation
