improved profitability of credit, lending and deposit products

In an ever-changing market, lenders, credit issuers, and banks must develop compelling products – while considering the risks associated with a fluctuating economic climate. However, large and varied offerings can sometimes make it difficult to assess and achieve optimum profitability.

Existing methodologies for making these determinations are reactionary, intuition-based, and error-prone – and fail to optimally leverage historical intelligence for predictive analysis. Moreover, these processes are not easily repeatable and prone to inconsistencies.

Lenders, credit issuers, and bankers need a way to optimize product pricing strategies, and determine portfolio sensitivity to potentially shifting macroeconomic conditions.
