CordiaGrad offers some of the most competitive rates we’ve seen and will no doubt help save borrowers money by refinancing their high interest student loans

Overture Technologies is bringing even more choices to student loan borrowers with the addition of CordiaGrad to its private student loan comparison platform. CordiaGrad is an emerging leader in the quickly evolving student loan refinance market, and brings additional refinance options to the Student Loan Marketplace (SLMP).

Overture’s Student Loan Marketplace is the only place where consumers can complete a brief online interview and have their qualifications compared to multiple lenders’ criteria. Doing so allows them to instantly see personalized rates and terms for private student loans before sharing information with any lender. Users can review and sort their rate options by financial terms such as total cost, fixed or variable rates, borrower benefits and repayment terms. The addition of CordiaGrad brings several unique refinance options to Overture Marketplace, including a choice of 5, 8, or 12 year terms. The result is more opportunity for users to compare and discover the best loan for their specific situation.

“We are excited to join Overture’s student loan Marketplace. We set our rates to be very competitive, and designed our 8 and 12 year terms, as well as our prime rate index for variable loans, to be borrower-friendly. We think we stack up very well against the other lenders on the platform” said Jack Zoeller, Founder of CordiaGrad. “Transparency in displaying the interest rates our borrowers will actually get, subject to a simple credit review, is paramount to our business. Marketplace is based on these same principles and we are delighted to partner with them.”

“CordiaGrad offers some of the most competitive rates we’ve seen and will no doubt help save borrowers money by refinancing their high interest student loans,” said LeRoy Pingho, CEO of Overture Technologies. “CordiaGrad’s participation in the Marketplace brings our members even more great options to consider as they navigate their important financial decisions.”
