Upgrades' main underwriting criteria is free cash flow. While they also look at borrowers' debt-to-income ratio and credit score, a spokesperson says, they don’t account for rent payments and other monthly expenses that can factor into your ability to repay a loan.
The idea is to keep people from borrowing more than they can afford by “having a pretty high bar in terms of how much free cash you really have at the end of the month,” says Renaud Laplanche, Upgrade co-founder and CEO.
