Understanding a consumer’s financial health has never been more important. 

With the economy remaining turbulent, accurately, and consistently verifying a consumer’s income and expenditure remains crucial in lending responsibly and meeting regulatory expectations.  

Without access to the right data, you risk making costly, uncompliant decisions, increasing the potential of delinquency, and putting consumers at detriment. 

Affordability IQ2 is a suite of personalised bureau affordability tools that can seamlessly verify a consumer’s income and expenditure for a better understanding of their individual financial situation, so you can make the right affordability decisions, grow your business, and meet regulatory compliance.

Make the right affordability decisions with the right data, at the right time

A view of a consumer’s income, expenditure and disposable income is key in understanding their individual financial situation, making personalised assessments, and driving better consumer outcomes.

With a more granular, individual level view of a consumer’s financial situation, not only at onboarding but throughout the term of the agreement, with Affordability IQ2 you can monitor their ongoing affordability and capacity to afford credit, and act quickly and responsibly should their financial situation change.

Identify income shock, such as a redundancy or significant drop in income, track current account changes, and support consumers before they become vulnerable.

Personalise your affordability assessments, make the right decisions at the right time and drive better outcomes for everyone.
