Radial circle

LONDON—November 9, 2010—FICO (NYSE:FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today announced that it has sold-out attendance for its 16th November FICO™ Forum in London. This event is exclusively tailored to the UK and Ireland markets, and focuses on ’The New Normal‘ — the changing credit environment in the UK.

Topics at the event include counter-cyclical capital management, a fraud panel discussion, modelling a 360-degree view of customers, improving credit originations, taking a customer-centric approach, using optimization to improve credit strategies, and assessing the economic impacts on consumer credit risk. In addition, Metro Bank will present a case study on its use of FICO technology to further its unique retail banking approach.

“In the current environment, banks are looking for opportunities to learn from each other and get new ideas for lending,” said Mike Gordon, FICO’s Vice President & Managing Director for EMEA and leader of the Global Banking Industry Practice. “We’re looking forward to stimulating discussions that will help all participants navigate the changing banking landscape.”

A similar FICO Forum takes place November 11 in Frankfurt. For more information on these and other FICO events, including the FICO World conference, visit
