ABS & RMBS Markets
VantageScore credit scores are often used by capital markets’ participants in both the consumer lending asset-backed securities market (ABS) and the residential mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) market.
With coverage of approximately 96% of U.S. consumers age 18 and above, VantageScore is a trusted source of credit-score information for borrowers across the credit spectrum — from Super Prime to Subprime.
Underwriters and institutional investors use VantageScore credit scores as part of their investment decision-making. Institutions across capital markets value VantageScore for a variety of reasons:
Utilizes tri-bureau data (Equifax, Experian, TransUnion) to derive scores.
Credit scores are updated monthly allowing for rigorous surveillance processes.
Provides on-going, transparent and public reporting of VantageScore model performance assessments and methodology.
Covers 10.7 million underserved consumers unscorable by legacy methods, while maintaining safety and soundness.
Same standard of care is used across the credit spectrum. Score transparency facilitates deeper insight into risk profiles, providing more efficient and effective communication of risk throughout the ABS lifecycle.
