FICO® Score for India and the new FICO® Score X Data for India use new data and platforms to evaluate risk across credit bureaus and establish a path to credit access

SAN JOSE, Calif. — October 25, 2017

According to The World Bank, nearly 350 million adults in India have no access to mainstream lending opportunities due to insufficient data.

  • FICO® Score for India, which uses data from any of the major credit bureaus, brings proven technology in assessing Indian consumers with traditional credit data.
  • FICO® Score X Data India, in partnership with LenddoTM, uses digital data from various sources provided with the explicit consent of the consumer so lenders can responsibly extend credit to previously unscorable consumers.
  • New score innovation in India highlights momentum of the FICO Financial Inclusion Initiative; FICO is currently engaged in similar efforts in the U.S., Mexico, Russia, China, Philippines, and additional countries around the world.

Analytics software firm FICO today announced the launch of the FICO® Score in India and the roll-out of an alternative data score, FICO® Score X Data India, in partnership with LenddoTM.  According to the World Bank, nearly half of India’s adult population are unbanked or underbanked. These new scores, FICO Score and FICO Score X Data for India, will give lenders greater flexibility and precision in their risk assessment of consumers, as well as help them safely and responsibly extend credit to millions more people.
