Small Business Credit Scores Expose Delinquency Patterns
ATLANTA -- The statistics can be a bit mind numbing but the data used to predict the likelihood of a small business becoming severely delinquent to a financial institution is useful to know.
Reza Barazesh, senior vice president of the Equifax commercial analytical services group, warned attendees at the CU Small Business Summit that the stats and the models used to compile credit risk score are intricate. Still, he kept the session lively as he discussed where credit risk scores are faring the best and worst across the country. The New England region, which includes Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and Vermont, is the most stable in the country.
