Why is the Wisr share price climbing?

Wisr this morning provided a quarterly update for the quarter ended 31 March 2021 (Q3 2021). The Aussie non-bank lender reported a record loan origination growth of $97.8 million. This represents a 17% increase on last quarter and 151% increase on Q3 2021.

Further underlying the strong quarter, Wisr reported a record Q3 2021 average credit score of 771 in Q3 2021. Today’s result means Wisr has now recorded 19 consecutive quarters of back-to-back growth in an impressive run for the Aussie non-bank lender.
