Features & Benefits

Limit losses

With the FICO Economic Impact Service, you can not only assess risk based on past performance, but also adjust for current and future conditions, allowing you to tighten credit policies sooner and for the right populations during an economic downturn, or loosen policies as markets near recovery.

Better prepare for the future

This patent-pending methodology models the historical relationship between a score and systematic changes in consumer behavior in reaction to the economy. It allows you to simulate the impact of future macro-economic conditions on your scores to better adjust long-term strategies based on risk preferences.

Meet regulatory compliance

With the Economic Impact Service, you can conduct “what if” analysis to understand how the odds-to-score relationship can change under a range of economic conditions, allowing you to create more accurate, empirically derived capital requirements and address Basel II compliance.

Project the future odds-to-score relationship

With FICO Economic Impact Service, FICO works with you to apply the methodology to a chosen portfolio and score. We build and deliver econometric models custom-tailored to capture the relationship between market factors and the selected score’s odds-to-score relationship.

Enhance multiple score types

This methodology can be applied to a variety of scores, such as origination scores, behavior scores, broad-based bureau scores like the industry-standard FICO® Score, and Basel II risk metrics.

Quickly integrate the solution into existing systems

Economic Impact Service builds on your current risk management tools, enhancing your decisioning processes by filling a key knowledge gap in developing more profitable, proactive strategies.
