Velocity in Small Business - Auto Decisioning

  1. 1. David K. Smith – Sr. Originations Consultant, FICO Velocity in Small Business – Auto Decisioning
  2. 2. Agenda • What I’m NOT saying… • Why Expedite/Automate Decisioning? • How is the market auto-decisioning? • What tools are needed to begin? • What is the first step?
  3. 3. What I’m NOT saying… • Change the culture of your organization today! – Automated Decisioning may not be well received in some lending cultures – Cultures don’t change overnight • Use a single score to decision million dollar loans – Not even FICO is saying this • Book riskier loans more quickly – Risk management is always priority #1
  4. 4. Why automate SMB decisioning? • Competition – FinTechs are aggressively going after the small dollar lending market – Large Banks are pushing small dollar requests to commercial cards – <$10B Banks and Credit Unions have a 9% market share of the <$100,000 loan market* • Expense – Cost to manually decision a $38,000 loan: approx. $2,500 – Cost of a completely digital decision: $38,000 loan: approx. $200* *
  5. 5. Why automate SMB decisioning? • Applicant experience • Andy’s story: A small bus. owner trying to borrow $35,000
  6. 6. What is the market doing? • Automating/Expediting small dollar loans/lines/leases – Loans and Lines: $10,000 to $250,000 – Leases: < $25,000 • Small dollar lending is moving to an ‘App Only’ borrower experience – FinTech’s leading this charge – Collect small amounts of information on the business and guarantors – Rely on the bureau information, analytics (SBSS score), and proven strategy rules
  7. 7. What tools are required to begin? • A Loan Origination System that allows throughput decisioning – Baker Hill technology and experience • A proven SMB lending strategy – Data Driven Strategies are ideal (Empirically proven strategies work, too ) • Data – Data from the application, consumer, and business bureau – Collateral? Financial? • Analytics – SBSS score
  8. 8. What are the first steps? • Analyze account performance – Which accounts perform well, which don’t • Talk to your underwriters – Use their experience to determine KPI’s • Run a ‘soft’ rollout – Have the solution ‘suggest’ a decision and compare the suggested vs the actual outcome • Start Small (ticket)
  9. 9. Thank you!
