In the aftermath of the economic crisis, financial institutions are facing a dramatic rise in bad loans. What can lenders do to reduce charge-offs? What can buyers of loan portfolios do to maximize the value of the distressed assets they've purchased?
The answer to both questions is to increase the focus on collections and recoveries by putting analytics to work on your data. With analytics, you'll make smarter business decisions across the board. Analytics can help you predict how individual accounts are likely to behave and respond to your collections efforts – and analytics helps you handle those accounts in the most efficient and profitable way possible.
In this Webcast, you'll learn how analytics can help you determine:
- Which collection strategies would maximize profits on individual accounts – taking into account contractual obligations, capacity, costs and more.
- Which debtors are most likely to skip or go bankrupt.
- What is the value of a portfolio under consideration for purchase or sale.
- Who is most likely to pay when contacted by phone, by mail or by legal action.
