Alternative data lets you peek behind the curtain of small businesses.
Lending to small businesses can expose your organization to unique risks. Small businesses can be more sensitive to changes in the economy, competitor threats and other external challenges. They also can be harder to research. Most small businesses created within the past five years have thin-file or no-file credit histories. So how do you know if they’re creditworthy?
LexisNexis® Small Business Credit Report combines credit data from the Small Business Financial Exchange, Inc. (SBFE) with alternative data from LexisNexis® Risk Solutions and applies sophisticated linking technology and analytics to connect people to businesses to create a more inclusive snapshot of a small business.
