MINNEAPOLIS – October 12, 2011 – Fair Isaac Corporation (NYSE: FICO), the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, announced today that it ranked #27 in the 2011 FinTech 100, which was unveiled this morning at the BAI Retail Delivery Conference in Chicago. FICO has now been included in the FinTech 100 eight years in a row, underscoring the company’s enduring commitment and contributions to banking and insurance.

The FinTech 100 is an annual ranking of the top 100 global application/service providers in the financial services market compiled by American Banker, IDC Financial Insights and Bank Technology News (BTN). Companies included in the FinTech 100 must derive at least one-third of their revenue from the financial services industry, and are categorized and evaluated based on calendar year-end revenues and the percentage of revenues exclusively attributed to financial services. The ranking is featured in the October 12 issue of American Banker and the October issue of BTN.

"Economic volatility and evolving regulations, among other forces, have made profitable growth extremely challenging for financial services organizations," said Dr. Mark Greene, CEO of FICO. "We believe strongly in taking innovative approaches to these challenges – particularly the use of predictive analytics to make smarter decisions. We take our inclusion in the FinTech 100 to be another indication that FICO’s industry-leading scores, tools and applications are serving our clients’ needs now and for the future."
