Risk

002Risk management in an evolving economy requires a more in-depth view of consumer credit health. Traditional risk management measures, like credit scores alone, may not provide enough insight for marketing optimization and profitable portfolio management.

Account/Portfolio Management

With constantly changing market conditions, consistent monitoring and review of customer accounts is critical, as is access to accurate consumer data. Combining detailed consumer information with timely analysis can help you proactively mitigate risk, as well as enhance your portfolio's overall performance


Account Opening

Increased consumer debt and stricter lending requirements heighten your need for detailed, precise consumer information and consistent practices at account opening. Can you be sure applicants are who they say they are? Are you making fair and balanced lending decisions?


Collections & Recovery

Collecting outstanding debt poses tremendous challenges when the credit market contracts, unemployment rates rise and legislators scrutinize recovery measures. Determining consumers' capacity to pay, as well as compliance with industry legislation, is as vital to your collections goals as accurate contact information. Equifax has the data and tools you need to develop and execute cost-effective collections strategies that meet regulatory requirements.


Compliance

Failure to meet governmental and industry regulations can be a costly mistake. When compliance is the goal, the more you know the better you are able to protect your company's assets and reputation. Whether you seek to better align your practices with industry lending policies or want to protect your customers against identity theft,  Equifax Decision 360 can help you build rock solid compliance programs that mitigate both internal and outlying risk to your business.


Account Cross-Sell/Up-Sell During Loan Origination

How do you identify and sell additional services to customers who can afford them, when they are most likely to purchase? Loan origination is perhaps the best time to capture further business.
