Bethpage Federal Credit Union teams with Scienaptic AI on loan tech
Feb 27, 2022
Bethpage Federal Credit Union in Bethpage, New York, is working with the financial technology firm Scienaptic AI to bolster its loan decisioning capabilities.
The $11.5 billion-asset credit union first began partnership talks with the New York fintech last year to develop and test machine learning credit risk models within its consumer lending portfolio.
Using these models, "we would be able to safely say yes to more loans that would have otherwise been declined using traditional credit scores as the main metric,” said John Witterschein, vice president of consumer credit for Bethpage Federal.
