Seventy-two percent of lenders that make unsecured personal loans use alternative data or credit scores.

Boston, November 19, 2019 – Lenders making unsecured personal loans are leading the financial services industry in their use of alternative data and advanced analytical techniques for marketing and loan decisioning.

Drawing from the findings of a Q2 2019 survey of 18 U.S. consumer lenders conducted by Aite Group and sponsored by Equifax, this report details the extent to which lenders are using various alternative data sources, the factors driving that adoption, and the challenges and market gaps they perceive.
