Make Improved Decisions at the Point of Origination

ChexAdvisor: The Missing Piece

The ChexAdvisor suite of solutions helps clients bridge the gap by providing alternative credit data on the consumer’s financial behavior history from DebitBureau®. Similar to a traditional credit report, ChexAdvisor provides:

  • Approximately 400 unique attributes
  • Optional demand deposit risk score

Clients commonly use this data to gain insight on the underserved consumer by augmenting their existing decision criteria with our unique new data. In short, gaining information on consumers that would have had little to no score or information at all! Traditional match rates can be estimated at:

  • Consumers with a SCORE at a traditional bureau: 70% match rate
  • Consumers with a THIN FILE at a traditional bureau: 66% match rate
  • Consumers with NO FILE at all with a traditional bureau: 37% match rate
