What’s boosting the Wisr share price?

Investors appear to be excited about the company’s recent accomplishments, sending the Wisr share price higher today.

According to this morning’s release, Wisr continues to deliver exceptional growth on its books.

For the two months ending 28 February 2021, the company reported a loan volume of $58.8 million. This reflects an increase of 138% over the prior corresponding period in which $24.7 million was achieved.

The robust result for the start of 2021 came from a record $35.5 million monthly loan volume for February. Wisr highlighted that this is a 52% jump on the previous month of January which saw $23.3 million in loan volume.
