ScorePlus is delighted to announce further collaboration with UC - Asiakastieto based in Stockholm. 


UC - Asiakastieto will administer the course. We will provide a link when registrations open.



To develop the strategic skills of Credit Scoring / Risk Insight Analysts and Portfolio Managers, through the rigorous design and evaluation of credit strategies, underpinned by scorecards, and the reporting of portfolio performance for scrutiny by senior management. 


  • Reading the portfolio – linking financial results to underlying credit strategy opportunities
  • Scorecard selection and measurement: getting the most out of models to support decisions
  • Credit strategy formulation: a structured approach to defining objectives, design and evaluation
  • Strategy analysis: designing the MI to reflect objectives and expectations
  • Portfolio analysis: rethinking vintage matrices to detect early changes in delinquency trends
  • Monthly reporting: key features of an effective MI pack
  • Portfolio metrics and risk appetite: defining key metrics and setting triggers for action

Supporting examples are drawn from across the credit cycle: originations, existing book and collections.


At the end of this two-day seminar, delegates will know how to:

  • Identify key profit drivers and understand the complexities of relating actions to consequence
  • Critique a scorecard to ensure it is "fit for purpose" - in business terms
  • Design and evaluate credit strategies, using an analysis driven framework of clear objectives and expectations
  • Use scores to reduce complexity in these credit strategies
  • Present strategy alternatives, articulating assumptions and expectations
  • Use the "actual vs expected" principle to identify deviations from budget
  • Define high level metrics and reporting with supporting statistical tests
