At Cardo AI:

We help institutional investors and credit originators manage private debt investments through next-generation technology and data science. Our mission is to bring transparency, efficiency, and artificial intelligence to the world’s private fixed-income market. We are specialized in the alternative lending asset class, such as peer-to-peer lending, real estate crowdfunding, and invoice trading.

Private debt markets are challenging and fragmented. No common standards on asset classes and no trading protocol exist. Due diligence, data treatment, risk analysis, reporting, and monitoring require a lot of effort and expertise.

With Cardo AI technology and artificial intelligence algorithms, institutional investors will have one source of truth with standardized and normalized data, single deal transparency, a smart allocation system, portfolio creation functionality, reporting, and monitoring to external investors and regulatory bodies.
