Lumos Technologies Releases Lumos Prime+ Score for Small Business Loans Exclusively Through Lenders Cooperative
In response to the rising demand for better credit insights from lenders financing small business loans, data insights and analytics provider Lumos Technologies (Lumos) and Lenders Cooperative, a client-owned LOS platform and commercial lending shared services solution, announced today the release of the Lumos Prime+ Score.
Available exclusively through the Lenders Cooperative platform, the Lumos Prime+ Score leverages three decades of small business performance data with cutting-edge machine learning algorithms to predict expected credit losses over the subsequent 12 months for small business loans and lines of credit under $500,000.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer Lumos Prime+ expected loss model for small dollar small business loans through Lenders Cooperative’s loan origination system,” said Brett Caines, CEO of Lumos Technologies. “There is a tremendous opportunity for lenders to meet the needs of an underserved market with a focus on credit risk and scaling operational costs. The Lumos Prime+ Score allows lenders to approve more loans, manage their risk profile, and get much-needed funding into the hands of small businesses.”
“Many legacy models have been applied with a broad brush for applications beyond the original intention such as consumer credit scores being a primary factor in the determination of the risk of a small business loan,” said Stephen Hayes, CFO of Lumos Technologies. “Our expected loss predictions for small dollar business lending are more accurate and fairer than consumer credit scores and leading business credit scores. We have performed rigorous validation on the Prime+ model to ensure accurate and stable performance.”
The partnership between Lumos and Lenders Cooperative will help ease the challenges for financial institutions providing financing to small businesses for loans under $500,000 through process efficiency and an automated scoring model that utilizes lender-specific credit risk parameters.
“Today’s community financial institutions understand all too well the vital role small businesses play in our communities, but providing the loans they need can be challenging,” said Loughlin Cleary, President and National Sales Director of Lenders Cooperative. “Lenders Cooperative is excited to be able to offer the Lumos Prime+ model through our platform, enabling our customers to look at their small business clients in a completely new light, providing fairer scoring for the credit local businesses need while strengthening those customer relationships.””
