Today, Subaio chose European open banking leader, Aiia, a Mastercard company, to enable a smarter way for assessing creditworthiness through Subaio’s new whitelabel offering. With access to open banking, the solution will help financial institutions, banks, leasing companies and more assess consumers’ creditworthiness automatically.

The traditional credit scoring industry has been associated with long, manual processes that have left room for human mistakes as well as being a costly and slow affair. The collaboration will smoothen up creditworthiness assessment by combining the access to financial data from Aiia with Subaio’s existing recurring payments detection, building a whitelabel solution that will remove the headache for financial institutions.

The increasing demand for better creditworthiness assessment is reflected in the EU’s revised Consumer Credit Directive that came into effect in 2021. A directive introduced to reduce the number of non-performing loans by ensuring that financial players identify and document customers’ income and recurring expenses before offering a loan.

Commenting on the collaboration, Subaio’s Chief Commercial Officer, Soren Nielsen, says:

“We know the entire open banking space, and we’ve known for a long time that Aiia has always focused on data depth and quality. To create automation and a product that works for solid credit scoring across industries, we need as solid and deep quality of data as possible to label the transactions and categorise them afterwards. That’s why we chose Aiia to help us bring this next exciting step in the Subaio journey up to speed.”

Commenting on the collaboration, SMB & Fintech Director of Aiia, Tanya Slavova says:

“We’re looking forward to supporting Subaio on their journey to build a smarter creditworthiness assessment tool that can be implemented in multiple lending cases ranging from banking to leasing companies and more. With Aiia, Subaio will be able to offer their customers a hassle-free, cost-efficient and data-driven solution to assess creditworthiness. With our high quality data in mind, this open banking empowerment will grant borrowers better loan assessments based on the accurate overview of the consumer’s actual financial situation”

Subaio’s new whitelabel solution can be used with any aggregator and has already gained traction with big financial players in Northern Europe due to the increasing demand of better creditworthiness assessment. Subaio began its scaling journey through the Mastercard Start Path program. The product is now being used by multiple institutions with a full roll out expected in the first quarter of 2022.
