A limited view of consumer behaviour means a limited view of risk

Supporting the customer lifecycle, LexisNexis® RiskView™ UK adds the power of alternative data to a traditional risk score, enabling you to risk assess individuals more thoroughly than simply relying on their traditional credit history.

LexisNexis® RiskView™ UK goes beyond traditional credit reference histories to provide a second layer of risk assessment that augments a typical bureau credit risk score. Taking alternative credit data like high-cost short-term loan or online lending data, plus non-credit event data like asset ownership or property data, provides a more complete view of consumer circumstances for a risk assessment that assesses stability, ability and willingness to repay.

Expand Opportunity

Identify and reach more consumers that could previously have been categorised as too risky, or who are credit invisible.

Reduce Exposure To Losses

More accurately identify a consumer's level of risk, financial stability and propensity to pay. Make more informed lending decisions which could reduce losses.

Improve Competitiveness

A more accurate view of risk enables more competitive risk-based pricing. Offer better rates to low risk customers.

Improve Standards

Treating customers more fairly demonstrates an increased adherence to both the spirit and the letter of FCA guidelines.

Use more data for a more complete view of customers to inform credit risk assessments

Unlike traditional Credit Reference Agencies’ risk scoring products, RiskView™ UK does not require consumers to have a previous credit history to provide a risk score and assessment.

Instead, it leverages alternative information from our extensive data sources, connects it to customer profiles using advanced statistical linking and uses predictive analytics to help support better credit risk decisions.

RiskView™ UK can be used to identify new opportunities

Using historic customer data from a motor finance lender, we were able to apply the RiskView™ UK model to consumers that had applied for a loan but didn’t take it up. Of the consumers in this group that were classed as high risk by a traditional CRA score, 34% were actually low risk according to RiskView™ UK. Had the lender known these were low risk consumers, they might have offered more loans or more favourable rates.
