Prospecting and Acquisitions

Beyond prime: prospecting in the near-prime space  (5)

As competition for prime customers increases and the population of prime prospects decreases, financial services institutions (FSIs) find themselves continually marketing to the same pool of consumers. This has led to slower portfolio growth for many FSIs, resulting in an interest in the near-prime market. This presentation will explore the near-prime population and provide credit grantors with demographic and credit behavior statistics that support the acquisition of near-prime customers. Time-series data will be included to illustrate missed revenue opportunities that result from not marketing to this population.
Intermediate

Key strategies in segmentation and targeting to acquire the right consumers at the right time (10)

Financial institutions are prospecting again but using the same techniques, and without considering ways to enhance their targeting strategies, they’ll saturate the market — which will mean weak campaign performance and dissatisfaction. Attend this session to learn about ways to bundle different types of prescreen solutions (combining propensity-to-buy data with category-specific segmentation tools) to help you identify your most profitable customers. Get insights as to what type of product to offer and when to make the offer.

Member collections: the good, the bad and the ugly  (63)

Members are the lifeblood of any credit union. Sometimes, though, they go bad, they don’t meet loan obligations, and the collection process has to start. Are you prepared to make sure that those members who have stumbled (but have been good historically) are treated differently than those who maybe should have never gotten membership into your credit union?

Learn how by applying a concise and consistent approach to collections whereby you can segment your member base and make sure that you are handling each member in the manner your organization would want. Ensure that fallen members understand you are working with them. Likewise, ensure that the more delinquent (and malignant) members do not create any undue losses for the credit union.
Introductory

Optimizing collections in the 21st century — leveraging advanced analytics for contact channel effectiveness  (117)

With tough economic conditions forecasted to persist for several years, companies that can optimize their contact channels and treatment strategies will optimize their collections and recovery efforts.

Analytics and Insights

Score migration patterns  (73)

Throughout the economic downturn, much scrutiny has been placed on decision criteria such as scores and score cutoffs. Lenders have been tasked with the responsibility to better understand the impact the economic downturn has had on scorecard performance. Frequent questions have arisen including:
• What are the overall trends of consumer score migration?

Home equity indicators with new credit data methods for improved mortgage risk analytics  (53)

Home values and current total LTV are key determinants of mortgage risk.  Area credit data, such as Experian’s Aggregated Credit Statistics (ACS), provides a leading indicator of foreclosure sales, which directly affect house prices.  Area data can also better reveal value-distressed neighborhoods.  Both of these methods can improve measures of current LTV.  For total LTV, credit data such as that in Experian’s Premier credit attributes provides superior measurement of second liens in two respects and is relatively inexpensive; property records are needed only where there are multiple mortgage liens.
Intermediate/Expert

Assessing the relationship of credit and protected classes  (66)

Eliminating discrimination is one of the many advantages of employing a score-based credit decision. Automated credit decisions can eliminate overt discrimination as well as disparate treatment by providing an objective assessment of risk independent of protected-class status. However, there has been a surge in the examination of the role of credit attributes and scores with respect to adverse impact. This session will explore the relationship of an assortment of credit attributes and protected-class status independent of and controlling for risk. It will also provide empirical findings, contrast the results with current regulatory directives, and assess the implications of using specific types of credit attributes in the development and use of credit scores.
Introductory/Intermediate

Impact of policy rules on score-based decisions  (67)

Policy rules are a critical component of most credit decisions. This session will survey the scope of credit policy rules, which lenders overlay on credit scores to refine decisions, in order to achieve competing objectives. The application of credit is a balancing act and must consider the sometimes competing objectives of business philosophy, operations, legal compliance and risk appetite. Experian credit data will be used to analyze the risk-reward relationship of credit policy rules when overlaid on score-based decisions. The session will provide recommendations as well as list the considerations when implementing credit policy rules.
Introductory/Intermediate

New insights in consumer and commercial lending through more effectively integrating new data sources using Attribute Toolbox™  (79)

You may feel that you have exhausted the benefits of using credit data and are looking for help in making sense out of the enormous amount of noncredit data (fraud, income, demographic, industry-specific, etc.) that you might be able to leverage. Nonetheless, the ability to effectively integrate this data is typically constrained by a lack of resources. You may compensate for this situation by focusing on more modular “quick hit” technical solutions. This panel discussion will review the practical methods through which some of Experian’s clients have gained insight into their risk management processes by using Attribute Toolbox™ to integrate both noncredit data and credit data in new ways.
