Making business decisions – like loans or approvals – can be challenging especially on companies with limited credit history.
Our SME Network Score is a credit risk scorecard developed to address the issue of the lack of rating models for thin file companies. Predicting the likelihood of delaying payments beyond 60 days past due, it is the best measure of willingness to pay in Singapore. The Experian SME Network Score combines traditional data and analytics with non-traditional data and machine learning methodologies for increased predictive power and coverage.
Through network analysis, we are able to cover about 75% of all registered companies in Singapore. The network analysis maps out the entire ecosystem of related companies through trade and B2B payments, loan payments, company ownership and directorship. These variables are then layered against a wide range of non-financial statement data points to further develop the score, allowing us to supplement data and performance of companies relative to the network. In addition to the increased coverage, the score has high predictive power that is validated across multiple industries.
