For the last several weeks it has been rumored consumers with subprime CCs reporting on their CRs will see their FICO scores plummet once FICO'S new and improved scoring model debuts this September. JUST IN, THIS IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! So what will the new FICO scoring model do? Simply put, a better job of predicting subprime and prime risk than earlier versions of FICO scoring models. That's it!
 
 


Do you have a link to this?
 
And I wonder if it is better at predicting subprime and prime risk due to the fact that it looks at if the CCs are subprime or prime?   Smiley Very Happy

Re: SubPrimers...Very Good News!

 
The company plans to begin delivering the new FICO® score innovations starting in September.
...

Fair Isaac's development tests indicate that the new Classic FICO® score research model increases predictive strength by 5-15 percent, with the largest increases coming in three important consumer segments:

  • Originations and new accounts
  • Borrowers who pose higher risk, often referred to as subprime borrowers
  • Borrowers with thin or young credit bureau files

I ain't buying the good news. I say the AU issue alone is going to drive down the FICO scores of millions, some seeing significant decreases, and many being husbands and wives who are already responsible for one another's debts.

I also predict the end result will be more subprimes.

Well, it will be good news for lenders, just not for consumers  Smiley Very Happy

With regard to AUs, I am in total agreement with you. The good news applies to those who only qualify for sub-prime CCs. Their scores are not suppose to drop simply beacause they have sub-prime CC TLs on their CRs.

Re: SubPrimers...Very Good News!

The effect on actual loans may not be as great as the effect on scores. Knowledgeable mortgage lenders and auto lenders already disregard AU impact on scores. The scoring change will just make it less work for them to do what they are already doing.

Of course, I don't know what percentage of lenders would be considered knowledgeable and what percentage don't bother to read past the score on their copy of the CRs ...
