(Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA) - Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE: FIC), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, announced today that it has been recognized among the top 25 technology providers to the global financial services industry in the 2007 FinTech 100.

"We are pleased that Fair Isaac was once again named a top 25 financial technology leader," said Greg Corgan, vice president of Global Sales at Fair Isaac.

The 2007 ranking of the top 100 application/service providers in the financial services industry is categorized and evaluated by calendar year-end revenues (CY06) and the percentage of revenues from sales to financial services industry clients.

"FinTech companies are growing faster than what the industry spends on technology," said Jeanne Capachin, research vice president of global banking and insurance for Financial Insights. "Top vendors strive to become trusted partners with their financial institution customers."

Ranked 23rd in the 2007 FinTech 100, Fair Isaac builds on more than 50 years of delivering innovative solutions that have dramatically improved results for financial institutions of all kinds.
