IFRS 9 requires lenders to add a greater degree of analytical rigour to how they calculate expected credit loss (ECL). Adapting existing ECL models (or creating them from scratch) can put an immense amount of strain on your organisation from a cost and resource perspective. What’s more, using inaccurate figures can result in you making unnecessarily high provisions as well as it being detrimental to the strategic planning process.
Experian’s IFRS 9 Credit Loss Insight (ICLI) solution enables you to comply with regulation by utilising economic scenarios alongside credit data to determine a more accurate ECL figure.
By incorporating economic forecasts, you can evidence a more sophisticated ECL calculation process.
Plug any skill or resource gaps by utilising Experian’s ICLI solution and leverage our team of expert risk and economic consultants.
By understanding how a positive/negative/neutral economic shift can affect your business, you can better adapt your strategy and/or lending policies.
Experian’s ICLI solution combines insights derived from your customer data (using CAIS) combined with our powerful customer-level bureau scores and robust economic forecasts to calculate ECL. We also use credit data to identify any significant increases in credit risk (SICR) within your portfolio. Knowing this figure will help you make the necessary provisions and mitigate any risks.
Our industry-leading Economics team build probability-weighted forecasts based on factors such as unemployment, inflation and credit availability.
