DAI’s Experience in SME Credit Scoring

Key Benefits of Credit Scoring

   Credit Scoring provides a consistent, quantitative
    estimate of borrower risk

   Relative risk allows for differentiation in:
      •   the loan approval process
      •   loan conditions and pricing
      •   collection activities

   Scoring leads to process automation (efficiency) and
    improved risk measurement (quantification) and
    management (consistency)
Working with Limited Data

 Data availability affects how we weigh factors

 Factor selection always involves expert judgment

Assuming we develop the best scorecard possible given
  our data and resources constraints, all scorecards are
       again “equal” in that they must be monitored,
   periodically validated, and adjusted or re-developed
Scorecard Development

 The greatest challenge is not statistical or
 technical ("accuracy") but rather human and
 organizational ("practicality")
How Scoring Works

 Scoring models assume the future will be like the past
   – Based on historic data when available
   – Based on organizational experience in all cases

 Scoring models should include the same set of key
  financial and non-financial risk factors that banks
  analyze subjectively

 Assign points for the different risk characteristics – the
  point total for any given client is its “score”
How Scores Estimate Probability of Default

 Group scores into some number risk classes

 Evaluate borrower performance over time

 Historic performance by risk class becomes the
  probability of default estimate for future periods
Example of Scoring Policy Table

 Risk Class   Decision Policy   Interest Margin   Historic PD

     1        Branch Approval        1.25           0,00%

     2        Branch Approval        1.75           0.08%

     3        Branch Approval        2.25            1.9%

     4        Branch Approval        3.00            3.6%

     5        Central Review         5.00            6.8%

     6        Exception Only         7.00           9.12%

     7            Reject             N/A            18.4%
Example SME Loan Process Without Scoring

Client Completes Application

Check Credit Report / Minimum Criteria

Visit Client’s Place of Business

Create Loan Memorandum

Present Loan to Credit Committee

                                         30%   70%

                                                 10%    60%

                   Short-form documentation

Further Review / Documentation at Next Approval Level   30%
Example of Time and Money Savings

 Reduce time documenting 70% of loans

 Reduce time spent by Credit Committee reviewing
  70% of loans

 Systematically eliminate the riskiest 10% of applicants
Scorecard Deployment

                       A web-based online
                       “single-entry, multiple
                       use” application
                       processing system is
                       the most appropriate
                       long-term model
                       deployment solution.
SME Lending Scorecards Summary

1. No “right” set of factors

2. Factors should generally be those that the Bank
   considers the most important when subjectively
   deciding to issue or not issue a loan

3. If the factors make sense individually, then as a
   group of factors, the scorecard will be able rank risk

 How Statistical Scoring Works

 For each potential factor, count the number of good and
  the number of bad contracts for across each possible

 Look for meaningful patterns of increasing/decreasing risk

 Assign point weights equal to the concentration of bad
  loans per category
Models Rank Applicants by Risk

Single Factor Cross Tabulation: Risk = “Bad Rate”
 Example Variable “Requested Loan to Turnover”
 Higher Ratio is Higher Risk
 4,000 Loans, 200 are “Bad”
       Loan Size to
        Turnover      # Good #Bad   Total Bad Rate   Points

Application Credit Scorecards and Basel 2

  Basel 2 has spurred financial institutions to develop
  internal ratings based models to calculate expected loss
  based on predictions of its components:

  Expected Loss =
                       Probability of default   (PD) x
                       Loss given default       (LGD) x
                       Exposure at Default      (EAD)

  The Basel 2 accord does not specify any one methodology for the
  development of credit scorecard, but several overriding principles.
