Central to responsible lending is an assessment of customer affordability.
Having a holistic and rounded view of the right customers to target, or the right customers within your portfolio can often be challenging.
Making decisions on which customer, or customer groups, to approach and who to extend lending terms for can have significant impact on your risk and operational objectives – positively, or negatively.
