AI leader Altada and credit specialist CreditExpo join forces to enhance decision-making in risk management and compliance reporting within financial services sector

CORK, Ireland, and NY, USA, 17 June 2022 – Altada Technology Solutions Limited, a global provider of artificial intelligence (AI) solutions that supercharge data-driven decision-making in financial services, travel/security and healthcare sectors, has announced a strategic partnership with CreditExpo, a consulting and software company specialising in the management and analysis of retail credit risk.

The partnership between Altada and CreditExpo is expected to create exciting new opportunities within the financial services market. CreditExpo assists financial institutions  to measure and forecast credit risk through its Empirical Credit Management (ECM) software. Altada leverages AI to generate structured datasets from previously inaccessible information, dramatically increasing the number of available data sources for financial services teams.

“We’re really happy to have teamed up with CreditExpo and look forward to expanding our capabilities as we explore new possibilities in financial services,” said Allan Beechinor, co-CEO of Altada. “Our strategic partnership will unlock previously untapped data resources, empowering banks to make better decisions around portfolio and risk management.”

Altada’s acclaimed AI solution helps financial institutions to extract value from large, unstructured data sources, such as loan portfolios, by parsing the components of multiple document types. This information can be fed into the user’s own investment model to enhance and accelerate decision-making in relation to risk assessment and loan management. 

 This technology, in combination with CreditExpo’s ECM software, will deliver a range of benefits including faster and more accurate evaluation of loan applications, loan portfolios, risk factors, compliance reporting and ongoing portfolio management.

“It’s very exciting for us to join forces with Altada and we can’t wait to show our customers how this pioneering technology will enhance their decision-making and add value to their portfolios,” said Dr Patrick Shallow, CEO of CreditExpo. “In addition to benefiting from Altada’s technical ingenuity, we think this partnership also has the potential to increase our presence on the international stage.”
