Psychometric Credit Risk Score
Setting The Credit Score With Psychometric Assessment
The Credit and Lending industry heavily depends on reliable information to be able to make accurate lending decisions and manage risks. One of the key sources of this information is credit reports and credit scores from credit reference agency.
People who have never availed of credit through formal banking channels will not have a traditional credit score. However, everyone has a personality, therefore has data available under Psychometrics. Even for small and medium-sized businesses, a promoter is a real brain and body behind the business. Therefore, his psychometrics will reflect his value and beliefs which are likely to drive the way business operates.
The use of psychometrics to measure attitudes, behaviour and personality traits could make information more available, that too at a relatively low cost. Psychometric tools have been used extensively over years in recruitment by employers, with strong results – many say that these tests are better predictors than the level of education, employment interview results and reference checks. An outcome of such a test can enable like it does an employer on a prospective employee, a bank decides whether to trust the borrower with the money or not.
How can psychometrics be used in lending?
