FairMoney Nigeria, a quick loan digital bank with incorporated name: MyCredit Investments Ltd has obtained investment-grade ratings, BBB (NG) Long Term, and A3 (NG) Short Term with a stable outlook by Global Credit Rating (GCR).
The assigned ratings were apparently driven by FairMoney’s ungeared position, robust liquidity, resilient balance sheet, sound underwriting practices, and a strong growth trajectory since its inception.
FairMoney gets investment grade ratings (BBB/A3/Stable) from Global Credit Ratings
This stable outlook rating reflects GCR’s expectation that MyCredit Investments Ltd. is evolving and will show strong overall performance metrics over the medium term. GCR further noted that cash flow and leverage was a positive rating factor and business growth is expected to remain steady over the next 12 – 18 months.
Over time, FairMoney Nigeria has significantly grown its quick loan book whilst showing strong profitability. Non-performing loans have been maintained at a stable yet declining rate over the last year of operations. This is a testament to the company’s advanced underwriting practices which has positioned it as the leading digital lender in Nigeria.
Commenting on the ratings, Co-Founder & CEO of FairMoney, Laurin Hainy, affirmed that the ratings reflect FairMoney’s resilient business model, international best practices, strong management team and a diversified employee base.
“The milestones achieved since our incorporation within the digital banking space indicates that the Group is on track to achieving its vision of building the leading Neo-bank in emerging markets,” he stated.
Laurin added that the company is focused on superior customer satisfaction and ensuring enhanced value for investors.
“As a customer-first organisation we are proud that this rating will create yet another win-win situation in the Nigerian market. FairMoney will be able to further serve our customers while providing a solid and secure investment target to institutional investors in our home market Nigeria.”
FairMoney was incorporated in 2017 and has wholly-owned subsidiaries in Nigeria (FairMoney Nigeria) and India (FairMoney India). Both companies are owned by the Paris-based parent company Predictus SAS. Recently, FairMoney raised a $42 million Series B round with international participation.
The Company also launched a N10 Billion local currency Private Note programme. The first series of the Private Note was launched successfully earlier this year and saw participation from a number of the leading reputable institutional investors in Nigeria.
The Investment-Grade rating places FairMoney in a favourable position to access funding from the Nigerian Capital Markets to finance its strong quick loan book growth. The Company plans on launching the second series of the Private Note shortly.

It is tested and trusted . It paid me out twice when I needed cash and I instantly I was given to me. My challenge is the interest rate . It too high. At least they should have made it 2 per cent of the money borrowed by a client, instead is 3perent of the loan given to client. Something should be done quickly especially considering existing customer’s on this platform. I personally am already going for something new. Thanks.

Worst experience with this app. It was good app when I used it for the first time now it has has become one of the worst I’ve ever come across. I paid my all EMI’s on time just 1 emi I delayed for a couple of days due to bad circumstances, throughout the experience i would recommend you all don’t trust on any app bcoz You guys don’t know, they will reject your loan application without any reason when you need the money most. There’s is no customer support as well. They are not providing me loan.
