FICO Launches Small Business Credit Score with Quod in Brazil

gbafNews28

SAO PAULO, Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Today, FICO, a global predictive analytics and decision management software leader, and Quod, one of the largest data intelligence companies in Brazil, jointly launched a solution for credit risk assessment of small and medium-sized companies (SMEs). To perform the analysis, the Quod Score PJ PME by FICO uses innovative data sources, such as data from the Positive Credit Registry and information about the company and its partners, designed to be in full compliance with the General Data Protection Law (LGPD).

FICO_Logo

Similar to a consumer credit score, the Quod Score PJ PME by FICO converts the SME's credit profile data into a numerical score that is designed to predict the probability of future payment. Based on the characteristics of the company and its partners, it incorporates registration data and credit behavior data to refine the risk forecast – its integrated vision adds value, making analysis faster and more accurate.

The solution can be applied to SME credit products, loans, and leases across the life cycle from acquisition and account management to collections as well as cross-selling.

“As we expand into additional countries, FICO brings a depth of global analytic and scoring experience to enable faster, more precise credit decisions.  With the introduction of Quod Score PJ PME by FICO, we continue to safely expand credit access for small and medium-sized businesses in this key region,” says Alexandre Graff, vice president and general manager of FICO Latin America and the Caribbean.

“Small and medium-sized companies are of great importance for job creation and the economy's resumption. However, the credit risk assessment process of these companies can often be expensive and time-consuming, which means that many loans are denied. In this scenario, the Quod Score PJ PME by FICO acts in an agile and consistent manner, enabling creditors to expand their SME credit portfolios and control risk with confidence,” says Ricardo Thomaziello, Chief Data Officer at Quod.

The new score launch in Brazil further highlights FICO's global innovation and momentum.  FICO is now present in over 30 countries including Mexico, the Philippines, African countries, India, and additional countries around the world.

About FICO
A world leader in predictive analysis software, FICO specializes in examining data and applying technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning and analytics to predict consumer behavior, optimizing companies' interactions with their customers. Operating in more than 100 countries, the company has developed a cloud platform that contributes to making more than 10 billion business decisions a year and that protects 2.6 billion cards against fraud. FICO brings together more than 195 global patents on technologies that increase profitability and customer satisfaction, contributing to the growth of companies in various segments, such as finance, insurance, retail, telecommunications, among others. Founded in 1956 and headquartered in Silicon Valley, FICO opened its office in Brazil in 1998.

About Quod
Quod is one of the largest data intelligence companies in Brazil, authorized by the Central Bank to operate the Positive Data. Combining a large data set of its own, partner's data and cutting-edge technology, the company develops decision-making solutions for several purposes: customer prospecting, credit risk management, customer portfolio management, fraud prevention, compliance and collections intelligence. The company started operations in late 2018 and serves customers from all sectors of the economy, including financial institutions, insurance companies, retailers, telecommunications operators and small and medium-sized companies.

Actor Bryan Cranston Lists Beachfront Net Zero Carbon Footprint Home with Coldwell Banker Realty for $4.995 Million

gbafNews28

VENTURA, Calif., Feb. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Award-winning actor, director, producer and screenwriter Bryan Cranston, star of the critically-acclaimed show, Breaking Bad, has listed his net-zero carbon footprint oceanfront home (“Three Palms”) for $4,995,000 with Jon Perkins and Katie Walsh, agents affiliated with the Montecito office of Coldwell Banker Realty. The approximately 2,450-square-foot Platinum LEED designated home is located in Ventura, Calif. and includes three bedrooms and four bathrooms with an option to purchase the furniture and personal art collection. The home is being marketed as a Coldwell Banker Global Luxury property. See the listing.

“I put my heart, soul and blood, sweat and often tears into it, and I'm glad because it was such an artistic endeavor, and yet functional. There's something lovely about creating something with tremendous pride and effort and turning it over… letting someone else take it to the next level of appreciation,” said Cranston as he reflected on the tough decision to sell the property. “I hope a family buys it so that their kids and grandkids all come to visit, and they can jump in the ocean and learn how to swim or surf and go for walks on the beach – look at the dolphins that come by almost every morning and afternoon. And end of the day, on the deck, share a glass of wine with friends as you watch the sunset into the horizon.”

Showcasing unique architectural features, huge sliding glass doors, polished concrete flooring, high-end cabinetry and appliances, and smart home capabilities, this contemporary home features many modern furnishings custom-made specifically for the home. Bathed in natural light with access to multiple beachfront patio spaces, the great room has a cozy fire reading nook, and ultra-modern kitchen. Boasting gorgeous unobstructed ocean views, the well-appointed premiere bedroom is a peaceful respite from any of life's stresses, and features a walk-in closet, a stunning bathroom with a standalone soaking tub, and separate shower. The private second bedroom also has a fabulous ocean view. All additional bedrooms offer ensuite bathrooms and comfortable space for family and guests. Nothing was overlooked.

“At the end of a private road on a peaceful stretch of beach between Los Angeles and Santa Barbara, this home was expertly designed to showcase the best of sustainability and luxury,” said Perkins. “A true net-zero build, the home's combination of energy efficiency, solar and recycling systems help it produce as much energy as it uses, making it one of the most remarkable green homes ever built in California.”

To view the home, contact Jon Perkins at 805-284-3660 or [email protected] or Katie Walsh at 805-350-6533 or [email protected].
