With the advent of open banking data in Israel, this integrated technology from FICO and Open-Finance.ai will help remove human bias from lending decisions, improve risk decisions and expand credit to more people.

“Israel is on the cusp of major banking reform with the introduction of open banking,” said Mark Farmer, vice president of Partner Management for FICO in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. “Automating decisions allows lenders to increase the efficiency of the lending process without sacrificing risk management regulatory rigour. This will speed up lending, increase customer satisfaction, reduce operational costs and drive economic activity.”

“Israel’s new open banking measures are an exciting opportunity to promote innovation and effective competition in the market,” said Itzik Gini, co-founder at Open-Finance.ai.

Now, we have an ability to manage risk instantly, based on multiple data sources to provide an instant, yet risk-aware decision to credit and insurance consumers. To unlock this potential, we knew we wanted to work with FICO due to its global leadership position in decision management technology.”
