Let us introduce ourselves
We believe that markets should be transparent and fair. The credit market in Germany is neither of these. Because of this, Germans are overcharged billions of euros every year on loans. We want to prevent this, and have been combining our finance know-how with our technnological know-how since 2007 to do so. The results are products like our loan comparison calculator, Germany’s first P2P loan, Germany’s first digital loan, and Germany’s first negative interest loan. With these products we make loans transparent, fair and affordable for our users. This mission is also supported by our distinguished investors such as Vitruvian Partners, Verdane Capital, Runa Capital and Earlybird. With a capital investment of over 159 million USD, smava belongs to the best financed fintechs in Germany.

Every year, over 200 billion euros worth of loans are taken out - currently, the majority of those in person at the bank. However, the advantages to taking out a loan online are always increasing. And we profit directly from this.
