Short-Term-AttributesSM

Identify changes in consumer debt levels

Short-Term AttributesSM allow you to unlock the power of historical credit data to manage prospects and customers across the credit life cycle.

These industry-unique attributes capture revolving debt and utilization changes over the past three, six and nine months.

Better Manage Risk

By understanding if a consumer is rapidly increasing his or her balances or paying off debt, lenders can more effectively segment prospects and customers who are likely to go delinquent.

Short-Term-Attributes will allow you to understand where a consumer has had substantial changes in debt, if there are trades that have had utilization spikes and the dollar amounts of those changes.

Analysis has proven that Short-Term AttributesSM segment risk more effectively than using credit scores alone.

The attributes are available for portfolio review or other batch processes and can even be incorporated into decision models as part of an online credit report.

Short-Term-Attributes can be the data source you need to ensure you fully understand not only a consumer’s current debt levels, but also identify the direction the debt is heading.
