Prodigy Finance, London
Borderless student loan provider Prodigy Finance has lent around $505m to more than 10,300 students in the last decade.
Nearly 90 per cent of Prodigy Finance-funded students would find it difficult or impossible to secure the funding needed to complete their master’s degrees and 80 per cent of borrowers hail from emerging economies.
Alums, impact investors and even universities can invest in bonds for international students wanting to study in the UK. Last year it raised an incredible $240m in one funding round.
