Wilmington, DE. (August 31, 2021) – Marlette Holdings, Inc., developer and operator of the Best Egg financial platform, announced today that Best Egg topped $13 billion in personal loans after origination volumes increased by 74% in the second quarter. Growth is expected to increase as the company expands its recently launched credit card product and introduces a new financial wellness platform.
“We are completely focused on creating a needs-based financial ecosystem to help people that have been overlooked by many banks,” said Jeffrey Meiler, CEO of Marlette. “The pandemic provided a unique opportunity to help our customers successfully navigate financial challenges and accelerated strategic investments and changes; this has all been in support of our mission to empower people to feel more confident about their everyday finances. We are very excited for what the future holds as we continue to find new ways to create financial wellness for all.”
Its two new product launches put the company on the forefront of rethinking the ways financial technology companies interact with their customers. The company recently began piloting the Best Egg Credit Card platform, which is designed to promote habits in cardholders that can help them build back their access to credit. Soon following, the company launched a new Best Egg financial wellness platform which will begin by helping people understand their credit health and over time offer practical tools, insights, and additional resources to provide more transparency regarding how their financial decisions impact their access to money. The platform beta can be accessed at Best Egg Credit Health.
Marlette was founded by leaders with decades of traditional banking experience and a passion for utilizing smart technology to deliver digital products, services, and experiences in a more relevant way. As a result, customers and employees give the company high marks including a customer satisfaction rating of 95%, an A+ rating from the BBB, strong review ratings from sites such as Trust Pilot, and last year was awarded the Consumer’s choice award from Best Company. This year for the fourth time, Marlette was recognized as a Top Workplace in Delaware by the News Journal Top Workplaces.
In June, the company opened a new corporate headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, and announced several organizational changes to increase its focus on customer-centered growth. Among the moves, Bobby Ritterbeck was promoted to President of Personal Loans, Chris Milone to Chief Marketing Officer, and Trish Wethman to a new role as Chief Customer Officer.
