In recent validation testing, a top US bankcard issuer confirmed that the new FICO® 8 Score and FICO® 8 Bankcard Score provide significantly greater risk prediction over a previous FICO® Score version. Based on a conservative estimate, FICO projected a financial benefit for the lender of $1.8 million to $5.5 million through conversion to the new scores.
