Confidently address regulatory stress testing requirements, evaluate the impact of economic shocks on consumer credit risk and develop economically sensitive credit policies with insight into the forecasted probability of default (PD) by FICO® Score range, product type and geography. To meet the Federal Reserve’s stress testing requirements such as CCAR (Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review) and DFAST (Dodd-Frank Stress Testing) forecasted PDs to be used for benchmarking inclusion in stress test models are readily available for each of the three regulatory scenarios; baseline, adverse and severely adverse over the requisite nine quarter horizon. Inform business strategies and capital allocation decisions with forecasted PDs aligned with custom economic scenarios to mitigate losses and improve business results.

Based on past economic and consumer payment dynamics, FICO has derived an empirical relationship between the default rates observed at different score ranges and historical changes in economic conditions, to project an expected odds-to-score outcome under given economic conditions. FICO’s patented methodology incorporates regional economic variables such as labor market trends, interest rates, GDP, consumer leverage and house price indexes, provided by Moody’s Analytics and CoreLogic®, to model forecasted future probabilities of default. FICO® Score Economic Calibration Service allows you to select from Federal Reserve baseline and stress economic scenarios to custom scenarios to support for multiple business objectives; stress testing, forecasting credit policy development and business planning.
Consistency: Directly predict the likely impact of the economy on the cornerstone FICO® Score, providing a consistent measure of impact across lines of business, portfolios and across the enterprise.
Transparency: Compensate for the challenges inherent in back-testing stress models by conducting sensitivity analysis through the use of benchmark PD models.
Timeliness: Forecasted probability of default available within days following Federal Reserve’s announced economic scenarios for CCAR and DFAST submission support and updated for idiosyncratic stress-testing purposes.
