Nova Credit and RBC Join Forces to Simplify Financial Start for Newcomers

Nova Credit has announced a partnership with the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC) to make it easier for newcomers to Canada to obtain credit. Newcomers to Canada frequently find it difficult to obtain loans, credit cards, or mortgages since they do not yet have a Canadian credit history.

Nova Credit's technology solves this problem by transforming international credit data into a format that Canadian lenders can comprehend and apply. This integration enables newcomers to carry their credit history from their home countries, thereby bridging the gap and providing more seamless access to financial goods in Canada.

Nova Credit is a credit infrastructure and analytics innovator committed to providing alternative credit data solutions. Nova Credit makes it easier for immigrants and newcomers to access financial services by converting international credit data into local equivalents.  Report:  2024 State of Alternative Credit Data

Partnership Features

  • This credit information passporting technology will be implemented into RBC's Global Credit Connect, allowing for real-time translation and integration of overseas credit histories into Canadian-equivalent scores.
  • Eligible arrivals can now qualify for a variety of financial services, including credit cards and auto loans, depending on their overseas credit history.
  • The partnership promises to make newcomers' experiences more inclusive and welcoming, as well as to help them integrate and stabilize their finances.
