"FICO Corp. developed the FICO® credit score, used by more than 90% of the largest lenders."
The Wall Street Journal, Jilian Mincer, September 25, 2007
"If you're thinking of buying a house, there's one number that's more important than all the others. It's not your salary. It's not your savings account balance. It's not even the price of the house. It's your credit score. ...The nation's most widely used scoring formula, called FICO, was developed by Minneapolis-based Fair Isaac Corp. and became commercially available in 1989. FICO® was adopted widely by mortgage lenders in the late 1990s after Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac endorsed it."
