The brightest minds in machine learning, tech and banking.

Banks base their lending on what has happened. At ArK, we create funding based on what will happen.

Our Core

ArK is not a bank, we do not provide the kind of range of financial services that you would expect from a normal bank like accounts, investment tools, credit cards etc. We do however share one product with the banks - we lend money.

What further distinguishes us from banks and other financial institutions is how we model the performance of a company. Instead of looking at historical aggregated accounting metrics, we make risk assessments based on highly granular business metrics and we don’t just look at the history - we try to predict the future outcomes. This allows us to identify strong businesses earlier than what would be possible by looking at annual reports.

Becoming the global source of truth for tech growth forecasts is our ambition, and to make funding flow in an democratized and unbiased way.
