Veda new Logo200Dr. Ross Gayler, Senior Research & Development Consultant at Veda has been a regular speaker at the Credit Scoring and Credit Control conference.  This year he has had a paper selected for presentation and he also chaired a session on “changing concepts” in credit scoring

Ross spoke about techniques in combining multiple statistical models that predict different aspects of consumer credit behaviour (such as default risk and fraud). Traditionally, credit providers have made decisions separately on these different aspects of behavior.  But considering all the behaviours simultaneously can result in more predictive decisions and the development of more effective portfolio management strategies.

The Credit Scoring and Credit Control conference is the premier international conference for credit scoring and related topics. With talks ranging from current industry issues to the latest statistical research findings, it bridges the researcher-practitioner divide and brings together credit providers, industry suppliers, and researchers. It is aimed at hands-on, technical practitioners and regularly draws 400 attendees from leading credit providers and scoring developers throughout the world. The value of the conference is reflected by its longevity – it has been running since 1989. This year’s conference was held 28-30 August in Edinburgh, Scotland.
