The Covid-19 pandemic has changed how consumers, SMEs, and financial institutions think about loans. Individuals may be looking for credit to get through a period of unemployment or shorter hours, while an SME may be looking to cover working capital costs or shift to online operations. Banks and alternative lenders need to reliably identify reliable borrowers from the riskier ones, a high-stakes task during an economic downturn.
In most of Southeast Asia, credit bureau data is often unreliable and outdated. Alternative data sources have become even more important, and a borrower’s bank transaction activity is by far the most reliable. Through bank statements, a lender can estimate borrower’s salary, typical household income through bills payment activities, cash flow volatility, and whether they’ve used other financial products like vehicle loans, credit cards, or a mortgage.
Typically, a prospective borrower fills out an application and submits printed or scanned (and unverified) bank statements; then the lender’s staff manually enters statement data into a scoring system, adding days or weeks to the decision making process.
Brankas Statement provides a verified, accurate, secure, and instant statement retrieval. Lenders can instantly access customers' financial transaction data, identity data, and real-time account balances. Brankas Statement integrates seamlessly with a lender’s mobile application or website, eliminating the need for paperwork, branch visits, or manual data entry. As a result, borrowers can complete an online application, agree to share statement data, and receive a credit decision, all in a few minutes, entirely online and automated.
Brankas plug-and-play technology supports a wide variety of use cases, including user authentication for your KYC and AML needs, enriched customer spending insights that enable you to deliver highly personalized financial services and budgeting applications, and easy integration with your internal accounting systems for expense management and reconciliation.
