FICO Launches Mobile Game in Brazil to Help Consumers Understand How Credit Works

 26 de septiembre de 2013

SÃO PAULO – September 26, 2013 - FICO (NYSE: FICO), a leading predictive analytics and decision management software company, announced today the release of the mobile game FICO™ Missão: Positivo in Brazil. The game makes learning about personal finance fun — consumers test their financial knowledge and earn status and coins. The game is available on the Android and iOS mobile operating systems, and can be downloaded for free from Google Play and the Apple App Store.

FICO™ Missão: Positivo brings entertaining financial education to Brazil’s 30 million smartphone users, especially young adults and the new and growing middle class. The game is designed to help players understand their financial obligations and how their payment behavior affects their credit options.

In a country where 45 percent of consumers are unbanked, and where 25 percent of the middle class and 75 percent of segments D & E have credit restrictions, there is a strong need to help consumers understand how to manage their finances and build their credit responsibly. FICO™ Missão: Positivo gives players tips on how to practice good credit behavior.

“With 35 million people joining Brazil’s middle class in the last ten years, it is no surprise that many consumers have questions about financial services,” said Robert Duque-Ribeiro, vice president and general manager of Latin America and the Caribbean for FICO. “FICO has 57 years of experience analyzing how consumer behavior impacts their credit risk, which in turn impacts the terms of their loans, credit cards and mortgages. With FICO™ Missão : Positivo, we found an innovative approach to share these insights with the Brazilian consumer in a fun and educational way.”
