Analytics

Industry leading predictive modeling doesn’t just happen; it is the result of knowing how to harness data and leverage cutting edge modeling technologies in a standard way across multiple sources. We build all of our models at the most detailed level of granularity afforded by the population and incorporate many microeconomic variables to capture the impact of local economies on predictive accuracy. We recognize the challenges facing financial institutions today. All of our models (including sub-models) have been externally validated by one of the largest accounting and global regulatory firms in the U.S.

Technology

We have developed a web-based, fully hosted analytics platform that is comprehensible, cost effective, customizable and easy to implement.  Best of all, it provides an auditable trail for risk management that can help your business navigate the growing trend of regulatory compliance using technological expertise.   Our Amazon Web Services cloud-based portal leverages our deep analytics to provide you with valuation and risk management tools that span the entire loan lifecycle, from underwriting and origination to servicing, secondary market purchase, and securitization.
