FICO® Resilience Index

More precisely predict a borrower’s resilience to future economic disruptions.


Discover and manage latent risk

FICO® Resilience Index can allow financial institutions to discover and manage latent risk within groups of consumers bearing similar FICO® Scores, without cutting off access to credit for resilient consumers. Leveraging traditional consumer credit data, it is designed to rank-order consumers by their sensitivity to a future economic downturn. It offers a simple, powerful complement to the FICO Score for an array of use cases.


FICO® Resilience Index enables lenders to better:
  • Prepare for cyclical downturns

  • Assess loan portfolio vulnerability more accurately

  • Adapt credit marketing and origination strategies to account for resilience

  • Proactively manage portfolio resilience and improve stress testing outcomes over time

  • Refine loss allowance estimates


Use in conjunction with the FICO® Score

Create a dual score matrix or as an additional decision key.

Can be delivered with a credit file along with the FICO® Score

Easily integrate into existing processes.

Scaled from 1 to 99 — with lower values representing greater resilience to economic stress

Simple and easy to understand format, differentiated from FICO® Score scaling.

Delivered with up to five reason codes

Helpful in understanding FICO® Resilience Index output. Supports adverse action communication if necessary.
