Credit Risk

A different approach to managing Risk


Credit Risk In Context

Develop your credit risk models by building context around your borrowers to deliver higher accuracy, whether modelling, probability of default or providing early warning alerts

Identify early warnings

  • Identify early warnings and signs of distress in the loan book.
  • Understand what is already committed and how it links to the borrowers ecosystem.
  • Run impact assessments to understand the impact on the complete portfolio when a certain company runs into financial difficulties


Retrospectively examine new COVID-19 related lending

A lot of lending had to be done quickly, ignoring risk models and risk appetite, perhaps even undergoing a lighter-touch ‘Know Your Client’ process.

  • Identify problem cases quickly and direct efforts towards reviewing them
  • Reduce the annual review cycle ‘hump’ by reviewing cases throughout the year
  • Minimise the impact on your teams


Understand second order risk

  • Understand the entire supply chain, across a lending portfolio
  • Understand the complete impact of foreclosing on a client
  • Identify, quickly, supply chains and additional businesses that could be in trouble 


Just some of the benefits

More accurate decisioning models

  • Add social and supply chain network features to client models
  • Increase accuracy by an additive 2% to 3% using social features only
  • Reduce approved default rate for automated decisions

Detect Early Warnings

  • Detect insolvencies in directorship network 9 to 12 months before borrower default
  • Automate horizon scanning – news, market data and behavioural scores across borrower ecosystem


Dynamic Credit Alerts

  • Score for network risk changes in real-time
  • Identify changes in corporate structure, directorships and connections to negative news or events
  • Understand the entire borrower ecosystem

Automate Second Order Reporting

  • Leverage TX data to build supply chain networks to identify materially-dependent customers
  • Aggregate lending exposure connected to single-name entity or industry
