Understanding your FICO® Score is so important today. A good credit score can be a doorway to wealth, housing, the capacity to save, how much you pay for credit, and even career opportunities in some cases in the US. Your FICO® Score influences your access to credit and how you can manage your financial resources. This webinar is intended to provide the professional and layperson the understanding needed to discern what is and is not affecting your credit score. FICO experts will walk you through how the FICO® Score was developed and how it works, addressing common questions and dispelling myths about the Credit Risk Score used by over 90% of lenders. You will leave with a deeper understanding of what goes into making and using the FICO® Score, along with tips on additional FICO® Score Tools and Resources.
