Addressing the problems of ‘thin file’ and the underbanked

September 22, 2020

Singapore-based CredoLab secured $7m in a Series A funding round in August 2020. Now the company is expanding into the US and other global markets. Michele Tucci of CredoLab discusses how the company evaluates smartphone and web metadata to create bank-grade digital scorecards. The use of such ‘alternative data’ addresses the problems faced by ‘thin file’ and underbanked customers in access to credit – not a small issue when, for example, 27% of the US population has so little credit history, they’re considered ‘unscorable’.
