About Our Team

Our Story

We created Splash Financial because our friends were drowning in student loan debt and had nowhere to turn for help. We knew that if our friends were suffering, it was likely that people all over the country were struggling with the same issues - the burden of high student loan balances, with high interest rates and large monthly payments. We believe young professionals will have a huge impact in the world - that's why we're investing in you now. If lowering your monthly payment or paying off your student loans faster can help you reach your goals and make a splash in the world, then we made a fantastic investment. Welcome to Splash Financial.

Why the Name Splash?

The name Splash Financial comes from the saying "make a splash". People are always told to go out and make your splash in the world, but for too many young professionals, the heavy burden of student loan debt means you have fewer opportunities to make healthy choices, begin pursuing life goals, and saving for retirement. It's hard to make an impact while being squeezed financially by your student debt. With little flexibility in your monthly budget, you may be limited on everything from enjoying a night out with friends, taking a much needed vacation, and prioritizing self-care, to starting a family, buying that dream home, and saving for the future. At Splash Financial, we want you to be able to pursue both career and life goals without the constant worry of your student loan debt. Our refinance options can help you lower monthly payments or maximize lifetime savings to pay your loan back faster. We're excited to help tackle your loans and see you make your splash in the world.
