We empower people to live financially healthy lives.

Strategic Financial Solutions operates at the crossroads of technology, information, and empathy, with a range of brands that provide effective solutions for the financial needs that arise throughout our customers' lives.

Our Brands

Strategic Financial Solutions, established in 2007, has been committed for nearly two decades to aiding Americans in navigating their high-interest and high monthly payment credit card debt. Our operations span three key areas: Debt Resolution, Consumer Lending, and Financial Consulting Services. At Strategic, our mission is to harness the power of cutting-edge technology, comprehensive data, and a team that cares to help consumers alleviate their debt.

Debt Resolution: We offer two distinct services in the consumer Debt Resolution sector: a Direct-to-Consumer offering and a Platform-as-a-Service offering for Law Firms across the country.

Direct-to-Consumer Business (DTC): Utilizing our proprietary platform, we deliver debt resolution services to consumers through our Atlas Debt Relief offerings. Clients of Atlas Debt Relief can expect a compassionate, efficient debt resolution program, accessible through a multi-platform experience.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS): Our tech-enabled business process outsourcing services empower law firms to offer a scalable and efficient debt resolution program to their clients. The traditional model of attorneys billing hourly for debt negotiation services can be expensive for both the law firm and the consumer. Our proprietary platform allows law firms to extend their legal services to a broader consumer base at more affordable prices, facilitated by our top-tier client management and engagement system.

Personal Lending: Versara Lending, launched in 2016, is a frontrunner in the consumer personal debt consolidation market. We design high-quality loan programs tailored to assist consumers grappling with credit challenges. Versara uses proprietary lead generation, credit, and servicing processes to uphold a high-performing portfolio of consumer loans.

Financial Consulting Services: Strategic Consulting offers alternative financial solutions to consumers seeking debt relief. Our Financial Consultants equip consumers with a comprehensive understanding of various options to overcome their debt challenges.
