ID Analytics Introduces Credit Optics® Full Spectrum Auto to Provide Lenders with Improved Insight into Credit Risk

New Version of Credit Optics Specifically Built for Auto Lenders Helps Strengthen Underwriting Strategies and May Help Lenders Extend More Competitive Loan Offers

 

SAN DIEGO, CALIF. and SAN FRANCISCO, AFSA Vehicle Finance Conference and Expo, Booth #306—January 22, 2019—ID Analytics, a Symantec company and leader in consumer risk management, today announced Credit Optics Full Spectrum Auto, a new version of its credit score designed specifically to address the needs of the automotive lending industry by providing lenders with insights that can help them extend even more compelling loan offers to applicants across the credit spectrum. Credit Optics Full Spectrum Auto distinguishes itself from more limited alternative credit solutions by delivering a more complete understanding of credit worthiness on applicants from no-hits to thick-files, sub-prime to super-prime, helping lenders to extend more competitive offers and ultimately book more loans.

To accomplish this, ID Analytics leverages a powerful and uncorrelated assessment of consumer credit risk using event and performance data found in ID Analytics’ ID Network®, one of the nation’s largest networks of cross-industry consumer behavioral data. The ID Network provides deeper insights from data not typically analyzed in traditional credit scores, including transaction data from wireless, cable and utility accounts; online marketplace, payday and subprime lending; and other credit-relevant alternative data sources.

To illustrate how a score that looks at both traditional and alternative credit data can reveal a substantial difference in risk within a bureau score band, ID Analytics analyzed a group of prime auto loan applicants with traditional credit scores of 750+. When these applicants were scored using Credit Optics Full Spectrum Auto, the company discovered a significant separation of risk among what are considered excellent credit applicants—with the riskiest 20 percent being more than nine times higher than the lowest risk consumers within the super-prime score band (applicants with 750+ scores).

Balancing Risk and Regulatory Requirements

In a rigorous regulatory environment, credit risk solutions often struggle to meet the evolving demands of financial regulators without compromising performance. ID Analytics has spent years innovating new techniques designed to help lenders meet their regulatory requirements while minimizing trade-offs on score performance.

“In an increasingly competitive market, Credit Optics Full Spectrum Auto helps lenders gain the insights needed to stay ahead of the competition,” said Ajay Nigam, CEO of ID Analytics. “Conventional credit scores typically provide only a partial view of consumer behavior and its associated risk. By combining this information with alternative data, automotive lenders can enhance their underwriting strategies with the goals of extending more competitive loan terms to consumers across the credit spectrum, and increasing book-to-look ratios while minimizing their exposure to risk.”
