Nigerian rating agency partners Europe’s fintech firm to revolutionise credit risk




DATAPRO, a Nigerian technology-driven Credit Rating Agency (CRA), is using an out-of-the-box approach and disruptive application to collaborate with Modefinance, Europe’s number one fintech agency.

The collaboration focuses on revolutionising and modernising the credit risk analysis and management industry in the country with ‘Tigran,’ a rating-as-a-service (RAAS) product.

Head of Product Innovation Support Services Ademikun Adeseyeju said the partnership supported using artificial intelligence technology, advanced analytics and big data to automate the internal authority matrix of their clients and customers’ RAAS products.

Adeseyeju explained in a statement on Thursday that the new credit scoring tool was meant for banks, financial institutions and corporate organisations.

According to him, users generate creditworthiness ratings (and also scoring) of counter-parties.
