Creditworthiness and Lending Decisions take a new turn in 2020


Accelitas hosted a webinar on Lending During a Crisis, revealing both challenges and “green shoots” for recovery in the coming year.

(Second in a three-part blog) 

Bringing together the on-the-ground experience of today’s lenders and the predictive analytics expertise of top data scientists, Accelitas has been charting the shifting direction of today’s volatile marketplace.  Our recent webinar Lending During a Crisis,  featuring Accelitas Data Scientist Steve Krawczyk and CEO Greg Coté, continues to provide insights, solutions, and a few potential surprises for lenders.

81% of participants said coronavirus concerns have significantly impacted their business. While that may not be news, a closer look at the research finds room for opportunity:

  • 200% increase in segment of customers that have not been active for five years
  • These populations were 30% more profitable for our lenders than average customers
  • Specific geographic areas are showing an uptick in demand
  • “Essential” merchant lending is strongly up and anxious to move forward
  • Debit transactions have recovered more quickly than credit
  • Better access to relevant and timely data gives lenders an advantage
