Preparing for an Economic Downturn

From Confusion to Clarity:
Helping Companies Build Resilience

We can’t predict if a recession is coming or not. What we do know is uncertain economic conditions are affecting consumers and businesses differently. Some are struggling, while others are thriving, creating an environment of hidden risk and hidden opportunity.

Economic indicators point to the need for recession planning

Increase in consumer borrowing year over year

Increase in some delinquencies

Jump in monthly debt commitment from lifting student loan accommodations

With the right data, analytics, and expertise you can:

  Limit Risk


 Monitor market trends and improve the accuracy of your forecasts for better business decisions

 Analyze accounts more frequently to prevent losses

 Look beyond credit scores (e.g., debt-to-income) to identify risky populations

 Use real-time notifications to quickly react to changes in customers’ financial situations - minimizing exposure

 Find Growth Opportunities


✔ Identify customers with the most opportunity for growth

✔ Target affluent consumers for new relationships

✔ Use financial capacity insights to optimize cross-sell opportunities

✔ Optimize prescreen campaigns based on a wider view of household finances
