FICO World Preview Webinar Series
Incorporating Economic Cyclicality into Credit Scoring and Rating Models
David Molyneaux, Analytic Science, FICO
Monday, September 26, 2011
5:00 p.m. GMT / 1:00 p.m. EDT / 10:00 a.m. PDT

There is an emphasis on embedding counter-cyclicality into the financial system. The Basel Accord requires lenders to stress test their regulatory capital requirements periodically, leading bank executives to look at tools to address pro-cyclicality in their current capital and risk management practices. This session will explore:

  • The pro-cyclical problem using traditional scorecards, and the influence the economy plays in score shifts and score-level default rates.
  • A new solution that marries economic change with credit risk metrics to improve counter-cyclical risk and capital management.

This presentation won the Paragon Award for Best Paper at the Credit Scoring conference in Edinburgh in August.

Changing the Collections Game with Self-Service and Mobile Technologies
Russell Robinson, CEO, Telrock and Daniel Melo, EMEA Market, FICO
Monday, October 3, 2011
5:00 p.m. GMT / 1:00 p.m. EDT / 10:00 a.m. PDT

Many debtors are able and willing to pay but forget, do not find the time, or are too embarrassed to talk about their financial challenges with an agent. Self-service channels can be much more effective than agents to help manage this type of debtor in terms of both collection rates and costs. During this session, you will learn:

  • How self-service channels transform collections productivity.
  • The effects of mobile on customer behaviors.
  • How mobile effectively solves numerous business challenges experienced by collectors.
