In The Beginning – Credit Scoring

In The Beginning

There are many different credit scoring models, but the one that is used by almost every lender nowadays is called FICO. Named after Fair Isaac Corporation, Bill Fair and Earl Isaac created the company in 1956 to grow their credit scoring method. The scoring system did not take off until the 90’s when it was turned into a computer program and mortgage lenders started implementing this program into their approval procedure. The FICO scoring method allowed lenders, both big and small, to make better and quicker lending decisions.
