AUSTIN, TX [June 29, 2020]- Open Lending (NASDAQ: LPRO) provides loan analytics, risk-based pricing, risk modeling and default insurance to auto lenders throughout the United States. Last week they were named a winner of NAFCU Services’ 2020 Innovation Awards. The Innovation Awards is an annual program that honors the transformational and valuable contributions to the credit union industry. The winners are selected by a panel of top executives and members of the media based on the degree of innovation and impact on credit union success.

The independent panel of judges for NAFCU Services’ 2020 Innovation Awards includes:

  • Farmers Insurance Federal Credit Union Chief Operating Officer Kathy Chicas,

  • CUbroadcast Creator and Host Mike Lawson,

  • Coastal Federal Credit Union Chief Member Service Officer Jim Pack,

  • And CUinsight Publisher & CEO Lauren Culp.

“Innovative and proven solutions like Open Lending’s Lenders Protection Program are helping credit unions grow and thrive in today’s modern and ever-changing world,” said Randy Salser, president at NAFCU Services. “The Lenders Protection Program was chosen by a committee of industry leaders from a record number of applications, which is a testament to its impact on the industry. We couldn’t be prouder to partner with such a driven company.”

Open Lending was selected for its development of the LP Score in its Lenders Protection™ program. Since the introduction of Lenders Protection™ in 2003, the company has collected credit and performance data on over $7 billion in non-prime auto loans. Utilizing this data, they released the LP Score in November of 2018 allowing them to predict non-prime default rates with 99.2% accuracy.

The LP Score leverages Auto FICO® and the LexisNexis® RiskView™ scores, which offers a holistic approach to better understanding the creditworthiness of a consumer, using data from multiple alternative data sources and assessing over 2 million different risk attributes. Now with the help of alternative data, credit unions can approve a wider range of members using Open Lending’s custom LP Score.

John Flynn, President/CEO of Open Lending commented on the news saying, “We are honored to be selected as a winner of the Innovation Award from a group of such distinguished finalists. As a Preferred Partner we value our relationship with NAFCU and support their mission to connect credit unions with unique solutions that foster growth and productivity.”
