The Capital Markets team
At Petal, we’re using fresh thinking and cutting-edge technology to make credit honest, simple and accessible.

The result is an exciting new approach to credit that has the potential to radically expand credit access and improve the lives of millions of consumers, shaking up a trillion dollar industry in the process.
