Planet Home Lending to Use FICO Score 10 T for Deeper Insights into Mortgage Origination and Servicing Credit Performance

Will use most predictive score to compare loans, retain existing customers

FICO, a leading analytics software firm, has announced that national mortgage lender, servicer and asset manager Planet Home Lending will be using FICO® Score 10 T in real-time comparisons for mortgage originations and to inform retention and recapture analytics for its $100 billion servicing portfolio. Xactus will supply Planet with the new score.

As part of this move, the mortgage leader will use FICO’s newest, most innovative and predictive scoring model to analyze government and conventional loans originated by its distributed retail division or purchased by the correspondent division. Planet will also employ FICO Score 10 T to further enhance retention and recapture analysis. The company currently posts verified recapture rates as high as 89%.

“We’re eager to tap the power of FICO Score 10 T to further analyze our book of business and unlock new origination opportunities to support our continued growth,” said Planet Home Lending President, Mortgage Lending, John Bosley “Our decision to proactively incorporate this latest scoring model aligns with our overarching commitment to innovation and helping those we serve to succeed.”

Planet’s use of FICO® Score 10 T adds to the momentum of the mortgage industry in proactively adopting the new credit scoring model. Lenders including Cardinal Financial, Primis Mortgage, Premier Lending and others have recently adopted the model for non-conforming mortgages.

FICO® Score 10 T provides greater precision in making lending decisions. FICO Score 10 T can help lenders better manage credit risk and lower default rates while extending competitive credit offers to consumers. FICO Score 10 T can enable an increase in mortgage originations of up to 5 percent (without taking on additional credit risk) and can reduce default risk and losses by up to 17 percent. The more predictive FICO Score 10 T also helps lenders project cash flows more accurately.

“Planet’s use of FICO Score 10 T affirms its position as a forward-looking industry leader,” said Joe Zeibert, vice president of Mortgage and Capital Markets at FICO. “With the help of FICO’s innovative score, Planet gains access to deeper insight into borrower credit health, and predictive power to help manage credit risk.”

FICO is committed to assisting mortgage industry participants looking to transition to its most current model, FICO® Score 10 T. The FICO Score Migration Resource Center provides a detailed guide to support organizations through their score transition with key planning steps and activities, in addition to implementation best practices.
