“The Covered team has built a disruptive business serving the underserved with affordable rates and delivering strong portfolio performance,” said Dominique Ruggiero, Managing Director of Fortress Investment Group. “We are pleased to increase our investment in the business to support its growth.”

“Covered shares our mission to provide better financing solutions to Americans in need,” said Ian Anderson, Group Chairman, Westlake Technology Holdings. “We have been impressed with the performance to date and the long-term growth potential of non-traditional borrowers in healthcare and other market opportunities.”

Founded in 2020, Covered Holdings provides financing solutions that leverage the company’s proprietary lending and servicing platform with a unique focus on the needs of unprivileged Americans. Their patient financing product, Covered Care, helps healthcare providers care for patients who would otherwise be turned down for traditional credit. Their proprietary financing platform can underwrite and approve patients at all credit levels – from prime to non-prime – with affordable rates and terms. This flexibility allows healthcare providers to care for more patients without taking on risk.

Representatives from Fortress Investment Group and Westlake Financial will also join Covered Holdings’ board.
