About

We didn't just build a better student loan.We built a community.

HOW COMMONBOND STARTED


In 2011, David Klein, Mike Taormina, and Jessup Shean met as Wharton MBA students and set out to tackle one of the most frustrating areas of consumer finance: the student lending industry. Armed with backgrounds in finance, and a wealth (or more accurately, debt) of first-hand student loan experience, they co-founded CommonBond. Since then, the company has grown, but what has remained consistent is the mission to deliver competitive pricing, a simple, tech-enabled experience, and exceptional customer service.

CommonBond is shaking up the student loan market.
