I'm almost old enough to start voicing opinions about youngsters needing to cut their hair and get themselves some jobs. Which is convenient, because that's sort of what we're talking about today with Ethan Fraenkel from ProGrad - a UK-based fintech that's taking an objective-first approach to improving student financing.

"You're not looking for car financing, you're looking to buy a car, you're not necessarily looking for credit, you're you're looking to make a purchase, you're not looking for mortgage, you're looking to buy a house. And so that's really the approach that we've taken with our algorithm as well, that allows us to predict how much money a customer will earn over the next five years."
