Barrett Burns, President & Chief Executive Officer, VANTAGESCORE SOLUTIONS LLC, Quentin Cottrell, Small Business Owner
For some, the conventional wisdom is that “unscoreable” means high risk. But what opportunities lie in the millions of consumers that are either thin file or without a credit score? Barrett Burns, President and CEO of VantageScore Solutions, LLC, the company behind the VantageScore® credit scoring model, will present and discuss data that sheds light on the unscoreable and thin file populations’ risk profile….figuratively and quite literally. In addition to a data-driven discussion, Mr. Burns will be joined by Quentin Cottrell, a small business owner from Atlanta who discovered he was without a credit score based on conventional credit scoring methodology. Mr. Cottrell was the recent subject of a widely heard radio segment aired nationally on Marketplace Money where he discussed his challenging situation. Among the topics to be covered:

In order to underwrite this population and empower these consumers with better access and choices, lenders require a more comprehensive view of a consumer’s creditworthiness.
