Gain Insight into Consumer Credit-Seeking Behavior

Differentiate bad actors from savvy shoppers with comprehensive insights on high-velocity credit applicant behaviors.

Recognizing high-velocity applicants

Strike a balance between approving legitimate applicants and preventing first-party fraud

The likelihood of fraud increases with each successive simultaneous loan a borrower is approved for.1 But when borrowers apply to a multitude of lenders quickly, before traditional credit data can react, lenders are left with a gap in visibility into how — and why — consumers are seeking and obtaining credit. 

Gaining insight into high-velocity applicants and their loan seeking behaviors can help lenders determine if applicants are savvy shoppers, overextended borrowers — or loan-stacking bad actors.
