LendProtect UK Ltd. : cts.businesswire.com/ct/CT?id=smartlink&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww .. , the leading provider of underbanked consumer data, analytics and risk scoring solutions for consumers in the UK, announced its partnership with a leading global credit reference agency to enhance its underbanked risk score, 3D Insight. The solution, tailored for the alternative lending industry, provides a clearer more predictive view of consumers who are underserved by traditional banking channels in the UK.
LendProtect’s 3D Insight score is a shift in the industry from a basic default evaluation to a more refined qualifying process looking at credit risk, loan conversion, and profitability. Short-term lenders will now have access to comprehensive traditional credit reference data like a consumer’s credit history, bank account activity and payment history on
trade lines such as credit cards, mortgages, car loans, telecoms and utilities.
This advanced scoring solution combines carefully selected characteristics such as monthly payment data from utility and phone bills to better understand the separation of good and bad performance, allowing lenders to further reduce credit risk and bad debt, while improving conversion and increasing profitability. With the additional information from this consumer credit and analytics giant, 3D Insight can generate a 25-30 percent improvement lift.
“The short-term lending sector is growing significantly in the UK and plays a vital role for those individuals who are unable or unwilling to use traditional banking services for those borrowing needs,” said Greg Rable, CEO of LendProtect parent, FactorTrust. “It is vital that lenders in this sector extend credit responsibly and effectively. This partnership reinforces the value of combining industry leading alternative credit data with predictive traditional credit bureau attributes to bring greater understanding to short-term lenders of a consumer’s ability and willingness to pay.”
