Superior risk predictionIt looks like this is Experian's attempt to come up with competition for FICO scores.
Until now, lenders have only had two options for effective risk scoring. Use a traditional bureau risk model that falls short in predictability or invest in a more predictive, but much more costly custom model. By using a proprietary development technique that mimics custom model development, Scorex PLUS provides a superior, more cost-effective solution. In multiple market validations with traditional risk models, Scorex PLUS performed better in over 90 percent of the head-to-head comparisons. These results demonstrated Scorex PLUS provided a stronger separation of good and bad accounts and classified more bad accounts into the worst-scoring ranges.
I just checked mine... Scorex Plus = 651 Equifax website 667
Do you know how to get your own scorex score? They seem to be using this score to be approved for apartment rentals. Since there is an application fee involved with apartment rentals now, I would like to know my own score in order to know whether it is worth applying to some apartments or not.
Last time I checked, CreditKeeper offers ScoreX Plus in their CMS, and is/was being resold and rebranded by some HSBC-based credit products. I can't speak to apartments, but ScoreX Plus is used by some creditors, but it's uber-rare. Prosper.com is the only one that comes in mind.
