Build more resilient loan portfolios

When paired with the FICO® Score, the FICO® Resilience Index provides an additional way to evaluate the performance of portfolios at any point in the credit lifecycle, including periods of economic uncertainty.* This allows you to manage potential latent risk within groups of consumers bearing similar FICO® Scores, without cutting off access to credit for more resilient consumers.

To address the challenges brought on by the pandemic, Experian® is offering the FICO® Resilience Index 2, the next generation of the FICO® Resilience Index. This new model was designed to predict a consumer’s underlying credit risk associated with a severe economic downturn and offers greater predictive power over its predecessor. This solution enables more intelligent credit decisions, account management and portfolio review processes that minimize risk and accelerate growth. 

By incorporating the FICO® Resilience Index into your lending processes, you can gain deeper insight into consumer sensitivities for more precise credit decisioning.
