Start Making Smart Decisions Across The Business Lifecycle

October 26, 2018 at 11:46 AM

 

Rick is a risk manager and is always asking himself: "Who should I lend to?" and "How much can they afford?".

Fran is a financial manager and often has to deal with account management issues like the expected credit losses. 

While Mary finds herself in customer engagement and worries about who she should target and what channels she should use. 

And then there is Cole, a collections manager trying to figure out what collections action he should take next. 

Looks like this team could do with some help.

The digital revolution “Digital” has been a financial services buzz-word for some time. Most South African lenders Principa works with have been working hard to adapt to a digital existence for several years. Some have been successful, others are still working on the challenge - and most have only partially adapted.

Model validation and adjustment

The time is NOW for model validation and adjustment. One of the major premises used in credit scoring is that “the future is like the past”. It’s usually a rational assumption and gives us a reasonable platform on which to build scorecards whether they be application scorecards, behavioural scores, collection scores or financial models. That is reasonable until something unprecedented comes along. You can read about this black swan event in our previous two blogs here and here.
