Challenging times demand innovative solutions

Today's struggling economy, along with more rigorous compliance regulations, are making your job increasingly demanding and difficult. You require the ability to pinpoint the right customers at the right time. If you don’t have enough information, or the right information, you can end up wasting valuable time, money and resources on misguided targets and prospects. RiskView Solutions can stand alone or supplement existing scoring solutions to substantially improve credit risk management, predictive risk scoring accuracy and help ensure regulatory compliance.

Our Solutions evolve with your needs

As the economic and regulatory landscapes constantly change, our solutions are updated and enhanced to meet your needs. In the face of record delinquency and chargeoffs and the onset of the CARD Act, the latest release of RiskView Solutions included over 300 attributes and other enhancements to improve your decisioning capability and efficiency, including:

  • Age and Predicted Income-related Attributes

Alternative credit data leads to more profitable decisions

Gone are the days of relying solely on traditional credit bureau data for credit risk analysis and scoring. Technology now enables lenders to access a much more holistic view of customers and prospects. RiskView Solutions offer unique alternative data that looks much deeper than traditional credit bureau data, providing a more complete picture of consumers' lives. Not only can you choose the best customers but you can also monitor and anticipate their risk to you as it changes. Credit risk management at its finest.

Improve lending decisions with scores capable of evaluating every consumer segment – no-hit to thick-file, sub-prime to super-prime

Alternative credit behaviors and non-credit life events – such as consumer interactions with online and subprime lenders, education and asset ownership data - are highly effective predictors of creditworthiness. Traditional bureau credit scores don't take this type of data into account, and therefore, they can overlook a large segment of the population, including thick-file, thin-file and no-file customers.

Access a large pool of untapped profitability

Approximately 70 million U.S. adults* are considered "non-traditional" because they don't have enough credit history to allow for traditional credit scoring. In other words, a credit score can't say much about someone with little or no credit history. Now there's an effective alternative. RiskView™ Solutions is a proven, non-traditional method for predicting and scoring risk that allows you to tap in and profit from this huge, underbanked market, without taking on added risk.

Mitigate up front and ongoing credit risk

It's simple. The more you know about people, the better decisions you can make. This complete credit risk management solution includes up-front identifiers so you can predict whether or not a prospect will make a profitable customer. It also includes ongoing account monitoring, so you can predict if a normally profitable customer has suddenly become a potential risk.

Predictive credit risk management

The effectiveness of a predictive score depends on the underlying quality of the data used to produce it. RiskView™ Solutions scores are generated from a vast collection of public records, consumer attributes and non-traditional information, such as property deeds and mortgages, liens, personal property titles, tax records, and criminal history. This data is then used to assess such factors as asset ownership, address stability and tenure, plus other items that can differentiate an individual's creditworthiness.

Comprehensive data to evaluate credit worthiness

RiskView™ Solutions incorporates a wealth of constantly updated public records, and has the ability to evaluate the credit worthiness of consumers across all segments, including thick-file, thin-file and no-files. Once the data is gathered from multiple sources, it is vetted through a sophisticated linking and analytics process that ultimately assigns a score based on an individual's likelihood to default within the next 18 months.

Industry specific results

The LexisNexis® RiskView™ Solutions suite of tools includes several different solutions that have been tailored to the needs of specific industries, including bank card, retail credit, automotive, money service business, and telecommunications.
