“The Extended View” launched by Experian is a new credit scoring system that has the potential to bring as many as 64 million Americans without a credit score, back into the lending fold. The new system will help the poorest of consumers, taking into account the traditional credit scoring system. The Extended View will look at factors such as rental payment history, payday loan repayment history, missed child support payments, financial histories and public records. The scale will be similar to the one used by VantageScore which ranges from 401 – 900.
The president of Experian Consumer Information Services reported that approximately 15 lenders, both large and small were already considering using The Extended View scoring system. The lenders range anywhere from banks and auto lenders- to telephone and utility providers. Studies show that the number of ‘underbanked’ Americans will grow in the coming years, which is most likely the reason lenders are considering the new system. The system will allow a lender to request an “Extended View” score if the consumer has no traditional credit score.
