Principa has also worked with multiple credit granters in setting up a monitoring schedule for internal monitoring purposes.
Scorecard Alignments
Principa’s scorecard alignment process allows you piece-of-mind that the scorecard is ranking risk and that your cut-offs are tied back to an expected score-to-odds relationship. This is essential in ensuring profitable decisions and is a necessary exercise every 1-2 years.
Bespoke Scorecard Development
Custom scorecards are data-driven models built on the previously applied population. These scorecards allow for the best possible credit decision and the setting of scorecard cut-offs utilising expected volumes and approval rates. Semi-expert models are hybrid of expert and custom models
