Make Faster Decisions for New Lends

When you use data extraction with EQ Riskfactor you can view prospective clients as if they are existing customers. This leads to faster credit decisions and risk monitoring controls are established from the outset using EQ Riskfactor’s historical trend analysis. This helps new business teams to analyse the prospect as if they are a client within EQ Riskfactor.

With enriched data the right decision can be made, for both the prospect and the lender, in the most effective, accurate and transparent way. This delivers a positive and valued experience for the prospect and ensures the lender remains competitive.

Risk Based Portfolio Monitoring

EQ Riskfactor functionality drives a risk-based approach to portfolio monitoring as resource capacity is focused where it is needed which allows increased time for client centric activities. Unique algorithms identify deteriorating collateral and indicators of facility manipulation, for example a potential fraud.

The use of data extraction across a lender’s risk management processes and procedures, in conjunction with EQ Riskfactor, keeps the lender one step ahead. When data extraction is used, prospective clients are ‘benchmarked’ from the outset with focused operational conditions set from the start.

Use of EQ Riskfactor develops a risk-based approach ethos throughout the organisation, prompting lenders to address clients that step out of their ‘EQ Riskfactor – Swim Lane’. Data extraction enhances this analysis and enables Lenders to make the correct decisions to protect their exposure in real-time.
