Better Assess Small Business Risk and Opportunity

Drive small business growth with alternative data attributes.

Small businesses often have a limited data and credit footprint. And that presents a challenge for lenders who need a robust picture to manage business risk and stem downstream losses that start with the origination process. As a result, opportunity may be lost—both for the small business and for the lender.

LexisNexis® Small Business Attributes solves that challenge by providing access to 373 model-ready data attributes built from more than 10,000 sources of public records, propriety information and alternative data files.
