FinScore’s mission is to provide innovative scoring solutions to the ever-growing needs of banks, financial institutions, and credit bureaus, becoming an instrument in promoting financial inclusion in emerging markets.
FinScore’s credit scoring platform provides products and advanced analytics to serve banks, financial institutions, and credit bureaus in emerging markets. The data obtained via FinScore’s platform is statistically proven to be more reliable, enabling these institutions to offer better services to their existing customers, at the same time attract new customers, and approach the previously unserved market segments.
With a solid background in advanced analytics and scoring technology, FinScore can uplift the predictive power of existing decisioning models and empower the acquisition of new customer segments by using solely its Telco Scoring model. Integration to FinScore platform is made easy and seamless as it is developed with a plug-and-play logic.
FinScore’s products are based on Telecom Data derived from 400+ variables (i.e., call patterns, location, loyalty, transactions, behavior, profile, and social circle) of the Telecom subscribers.
The analyzed data provide financial institutions with critical knowledge and insights about the creditworthiness and willingness to repay of a particular market segment, until this point known as “the unbankable customers.”
FinScore traces its roots from the internationally recognized fintech company, Cash Credit. Established in 2012 in Bulgaria, Cash Credit is the first to partner with Telecom Operators to obtain most valuable data from a purely new and objective source – the Telco Usage Data of subscribers.
By analyzing Telecom Data and gaining insights from patterns of the subscriber’s habits and behavior, CASH CREDIT was able to recognize credit-worthy individuals, and has established confidence in extending unsecured loans to the unbanked population at a manageable risk.
Recognizing the growing demand both for financial services and reliable alternative sources of data, CASH CREDIT has spanned-off its first venture, FINSCORE, a Telco Scoring focused platform-as-a-service for banks and financial institutions.
With this proven and profitable concept, Cash Credit expanded its operations in 2015 and has since then successfully established business models in South Africa and in the Philippines.
As Cash Credit accumulated vast knowledge and experience through lending, it has soon identified the opportunity to branch out its services and integrate with other financial institutions and banks.
By using Cash Credit’s unique in-house telco credit scoring developed over time in 3 emerging markets, these institutions has found a proven and innovative way to expand, reach, and start serving the unbanked population.
Recognizing the growing demand both for financial services and reliable alternative sources of data, Cash Credit has spanned-off its first venture, FinScore, a Telco Scoring-focused platform-as-a-service for banks and financial institutions.
