Alternative Data

The exponential growth of the internet creates more and more digital traces (so-called digital footprints), which represent important analysis proxies to support decisions and that can be used and monitored by financial intermediaries for smart lending purposes.

The integration of data from digital footprint with those obtained from traditional credit scoring models represents a tool to support banks and companies to improve the accuracy of decisions and, at the same time, broaden the base of companies on which to perform analyzes, by facilitating access to credit and ultimately promoting financial inclusion.

In this regard, CBI has entered into a Partnership with Almawave, a company of the Almaviva Group that, through its subsidiary Data Appeal, offers an Alternative Data  solution for Smart Lending capable of analyzing the digital footprint of any company that has an online presence. Using alternative data, it is possible to measure the perception that emerges from the analysis of conversations, online content and digital channels, with the aim of helping Banks in the process of granting and monitoring loans for their Corporate clients and to overcome the limitations of current credit scoring models
