Our Open Banking powered Credit Insight, allows lenders to accurately assess someone’s credit-worthiness and predict the likelihood of someone defaulting. Assessing a borrower’s finances based on questionaries, bank statements and employment data is not very accurate, it is difficult for lenders to determine the borrower`s ability-to-pay and have a clear picture of any risk indicators


Traditional credit checks vs. Open Banking powered credit insight

With traditional credit checks, the applicant is asked to provide a lot of documents. These documents are then manually analysed for each customer. This process is time-consuming and resource intensive. The approval can take weeks and customer journey becomes inconsistent.

Open Banking is bringing a revolution in credit-checking. The core approach of Open Banking powered Credit Insight: The lender asks the borrower to grant access to their banking data. With the consent of the borrower, this data will be analysed and categorized. A credit score is generated, giving a highly accurate indication of the risk of default. Clear indicators regarding potentially risky behaviour such as excessive gambling, overdraft fees, payment rejections can be immediately flagged. With these insights into actual financial behaviour the lender can make an informed decision and embrace the future of lending!





Worldline's API provides a simple plug-and-play solution to lenders. Borrowers are redirected to our concise GUI where they can log into their banking environment and provide consent to share their data. A highly accurate Credit Score can be generated by analysing 3 months of banking data.
