Powerlytics & Modelshop Fireside Chat Session

Session Title: Demystifying the power of Alternative Data and its impact on Credit Decision Outcomes

Presenters: Don Chapman, Head of Strategic Partnerships at Powerlytics and Tom Tobin, Modelshop Founder & CEO

Session Description:

In today’s rapidly evolving financial landscape, traditional scoring methods alone are no longer sufficient. That’s why many FIs are pioneering the integration of new Alternative Data to provide deeper insights and smarter decision-making. By harnessing Alternative Data, we gain a comprehensive view of individuals and businesses beyond traditional credit histories. This enables us to uncover valuable insights, identify emerging trends, and make more informed decisions.

In this fire-side chat session, you’ll learn how Alternative Data allows FI’s risk and credit teams to assess risk with greater accuracy and granularity. By analyzing a diverse range of data points, we can identify potential risks early on and proactively mitigate them. With richer data at your disposal, your team can make smarter, more nuanced credit decisions. This leads to better outcomes for both your customers and your institution, fostering a healthier and more resilient financial ecosystem.
