How we think about risk

Don’t rely on credit bureau data.
Integrate data with business judgment.
Risky customers can still be profitable.
Algorithms are flawed when a scoring model for consumer credit cards looks at the card's utilization ratio as one of the predictors of default. The algorithm believes that customers with a low debt line utilization (e.g., using just 10% of their credit limit) are safer than customers with a high utilization. For safe customers, the algorithm increases the limit, creating a circular reference.
About half of American Millennials consider Credit Score an important factor when considering whether to seriously date.
Psychologists often use a 5-dimensional framework called OCEAN
to measure personality. The "C" stands for conscientiousness – an indicator of a person's risk-taking behaviour. Signals for conscientious behaviour include purchasing insurance.
Credit officers are statistically more likely to approve loan applications earlier and later in the day due to midday decision fatigue.
No amount of data or computing power alone can find the perfect risk model.
