Gain a more complete view of credit behavior with alternative credit data

The term “alternative data” is tossed about in the industry, but what types of alternative data can truly be used when lenders want to make a credit decision? Our research and compliance knowledge shows the data must be displayable, disputable and assess a consumer’s ability, stability and willingness to pay.

By pulling in new data sources that include alternative financingaccount aggregation, as well as on-time utility and rental payments, we can provide a more holistic view of all consumers. These insights can help lenders identify and prevent fraud, determine an applicant’s ability to pay, and verify an identity.

Ultimately, it can improve credit access and decisioning for millions of consumers who may otherwise be overlooked.
