The Creditinfo Chronicle

Working with Creditstar

Creditstar has experienced a significant growth in business over the last years. The company has successfully entered new markets such as Spain, making financial products easily available to a population of more than 120 million people. In 2017, Creditstar approached Creditinfo to help them to review their loan origination processes for operations in Spain, Sweden and United Kindom. Creditstar wanted to make sure that they were doing things according to the industry best-practice.

Creditinfo consultants reviewed underwriting policy, usage of internal and external data sources as well as usage of decision support tools and scorecards. Based on valuable insights supported by a rigorous analysis of data that were provided, Creditstar has implemented several improvements in their credit processes that led to higher operational efficiency, better risk management and more transparency. Creditstar implications also helped to enrich key reports structure and lay ground for future automation. Reviews during and after the project enabled practical outcome and helped to focus on the most important aspects.

Creditinfo Trend Report 2020

The tango of alternatives and classics in credit risk management and fintech is a beautiful dance that we will enjoy for a few more years to come, it seems. The alternatives challenging the status quo are striving to narrow the gap between the consumer expectations and the ability of current business to meet them, so whoever will manage to close that gap will be able to move the whole party to a completely new dance floor.

Interestingly, these challengers that defy, support or supplement the classic players can be quantified and the number is impressive: more than 35.000 start-ups in the past 5 years. Such numbers don’t show a trend anymore, they show a reality. We believe that sharing is the way to grow together, because most of us share the same goal: a higher level of financial inclusion and this is what counts.

Let’s share and grow faster together, in facilitating access to finance!
