Envestnet | Yodlee Launches Suite of Risk Reporting Tools

Screen Shot 2017-03-06 at 11.02.05 AM

Data aggregation and analytics platform Envestnet | Yodlee launched a Risk Insight Suite today. The collection of reporting tools are aimed to help lenders bolster information gained from traditional credit reports by leveraging consumer financial data.

Using a co-brandable experience, the reports pull information directly from a prospective borrower’s banks to offer lenders an up-to-date picture of the borrower’s assets, income, and expenses. This detailed level of account information helps lenders with underwriting, origination, pre-qualification, and account review. The system leverages machine learning, along with a risk-based engine to simplify the review process and highlight any issues that may indicate a riskier borrower.

In the press release, Terry McKeown, Practice Manager, Credit Analytics at Envestnet | Yodlee said, “By using consumer permissioned financial data, lenders can obtain a complete financial picture of a borrower. This is especially true for credit invisible consumers who have no credit file or cannot be scored with traditional models, and for subprime consumers whose transactional data can help lenders make more accurate assessments of risk.”

Along with providing more valuable metrics for the lender, the Risk Insight Suite creates a smoother user experience for the end client. Because Envestnet | Yodlee pulls all necessary information directly from the user’s bank, there is no need for the client to supply paper bank statements and tax returns.

This is similar to the company’s Mortgage Asset Verification product launched in December of last year. In comparison, that offering is exclusive to mortgage borrowers, while the Risk Insight Suite of reporting tools caters to a larger audience. Envestnet | Yodlee most recently demoed at FinovateFall 2016 and at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2016 where Deviprasad Kocherry, director of platform and product management, and Deven Maru, senior product manager of mobile platform, presented on fast integration using the company’s APIs. Since acquiring Yodlee in August 2015 for $660 million, Envestnet | Yodlee has built out its Advisor Now solution and landed a partnership with Morgan Stanley’s wealth management arm.

Scotiabank and AlphaPoint Wrap Up Blockchain Trial

Screen Shot 2017-02-27 at 10.30.02 AM

Blockchain technology infrastructure platform AlphaPoint has finished a successful trial with Scotiabank. The Toronto-based bank tested its internal system with a range of use cases for AlphaPoint’s Distributed Ledger Platform.

The AlphaPoint platform lets banks digitize financial instruments, creating trading venues for blockchain assets, while managing workflows integrated with the bank’s existing infrastructure. Scotiabank tested the platform for multiple months by submitting trade reports to the platform, which ran simultaneously on Microsoft’s Azure cloud and AlphaPoint hardware. The blockchain network converted FIXML messages into smart contracts in real time, establishing a single, permanent record across the network.

“Distributed ledger technology enables institutions to rethink how data flows within their organizations,” stated Joe Ventura, Founder & CEO of AlphaPoint. “Partnering with Scotiabank is an amazing experience – their team is leading the charge by proving out pragmatic, near-term implementations of this revolutionary technology.”

Bitcoin Magazine asked Igor Telyatnikov, president and COO of AlphaPoint, if there were plans to further develop this project. Telyatnikov responded that he could not comment on next steps, but, “he did however indicate that AlphaPoint is planning to reveal some additional news in the near future.”

Founded in 2013, AlphaPoint debuted its digital currency exchange platform at FinovateEurope 2015. Earlier this year, the company appointed former Deutsche Bank director, Scott Scalf, as Vice President. In October 2016, AlphaPoint unveiled StreamCore, a new solution to help banks manage and interact with blockchain data.
