Millions of adults do not have access to an arranged overdraft and changing regulations could cause those many millions of consumers to lose access to any unarranged overdraft facility currently offered by their primary bank, meaning their payments will begin to be rejected, leading to failed payments.
Fiinu will change the overdraft landscape allowing customers to connect the Fiinu product to their primary bank account via Open Banking giving customers a choice of who they receive credit from without ever having to switch bank accounts.
Having an account with Fiinu may help improve credit scores and removes the need for consumers to seek alternative high-cost short-term credit which may have a damaging effect on their credit file and/or lenders credit decisions.
Only a small number of people in the country are currently fully aware that non-standard credit products have a severe adverse effect on consumer’s credit scores and file.
Payday loans reduce credit scores by an average of -10%, and according to BBC Newsnight, two-thirds of mortgage applications are rejected if the applicant has taken out a payday loan in the past 6 years.
Fiinu is powered by Fiinuscore, a bespoke in-house developed process-funnel which does not rely solely on credit reference agency data.
Fiinuscore-process is on the precipice of an exponential leap in fintech-innovation, which reshapes the world of financial inclusion. It is more personal, predictive and instantaneous than traditional scorecard-models. In brief, the Fiinuscore-process is a funnel, which continuously improves by using quantitative modelling techniques.
