Presenter Profile

Modelshop is an analytic decision platform for financial services. We enable organizations to create analytic decision services an order of magnitude faster than traditional technologies. Examples include lending origination, credit pricing, portfolio optimization, fraud prevention, and insurance claims decisioning. What makes Modelshop unique is our powerful data modeling and variable engine. We empower business analysts to create decision models as easily as creating a spreadsheet, while providing a platform that enables high-volume, low latency services that can drive mission critical decisions. By integrating predictive analytics created in R or Python, Modelshop allows financial institutions to improve the performance of their business without the hassle of building custom model deployment software.


Create a Custom Credit Risk Model Using Modelshop

Modelshop enables financial institutions to create custom decision models in record time. In this presentation, the Modelshop team will demonstrate building a credit risk model that uses credit report details, applicant assets, and deal ratios to predict loan default rates and price a credit offer. The model will be created from scratch in 15 minutes. This is one example of how Modelshop can improve the performance of financial institutions. Our platform has created decision models for origination, fraud mitigation, portfolio optimization, roboadvisor recommendations and compliance assurance.
