How Cash Atlas™ Works

Cash Atlas™ helps you generate a complete risk profile for your consumers across the credit spectrum. In a few simple steps, it can categorize and condense bank transaction data into risk attributes with adverse action codes, helping you make more informed approval decisions.

The user authorizes access to their data and selects the account(s) they would like to connect — all from within your digital application journey.

The user’s bank transaction data is retrieved, normalized, and modeled with our 1,000+ performance-tested attributes to meet your underwriting criteria.

Nova Credit delivers real-time insights based on model criteria to help you make better-informed credit decisions about your applicant.

Cleaned, Processed, and Normalized Bank Data

Nova Credit’s proprietary approach improves the signal-to-noise ratio of bank transaction data, helping to erase traditional roadblocks, including:

  • Differentiating between real income and non-income related inflows (e.g. transfers, merchandise returns, etc.)

  • Identifying money movement between accounts owned by the same individual

  • Differentiating between individual and joint accounts; reporting on both the consumer and account levels

Attributes Proven to Predict Risk

Reduce the engineering resources you devote to quantifying risk separation using our suite of over 1,000 attributes, each performance-tested against actual risk data to ensure predictive power.  These attributes, representing behaviors over a single day to 24-month timeline, are built for underwriting, and include adverse action language and special value handling. Each line item is classified as one of three major data types — income, assets, and expenses — then aggregated into attributes for use in your decisioning and pricing strategies.

NovaScore Cash Flow (NSCF): A powerful risk score built on bank data
