“This system is the only one of its kind on the market and is invaluable to our client managers and our Credit Risk team. I use EQ Riskfactor every day, it is our main point of reference for information on the profile of our clients.” Rachel Illidge, Head of Portfolio MI, Close Brothers Invoice Finance
In the UK 90% of the receivables finance industry use EQ Riskfactor.
EQ Riskfactor uses unique algorithms and data analytics to ensure that the software alerts risk managers to any change in client activity. The software has access to 75,000 lending cases, and is used to compare your portfolio performance to the best and worst patterns of Client behaviour.
EQ Riskfactor provides daily monitoring of collateral performance and gives Lenders a single view of risk. The risk management software feeds off a Lender’s operating platform to constantly monitor portfolio performance and quickly alerts Lenders to changes in client behaviour and deteriorating patterns of collateral performance. This enables Lenders to reduce or even completely mitigate bad debts.
The alerting mechanism allows Lenders to maintain a daily ‘watch list’ based on criteria agreed by the Lender which supports constant monitoring rather than the traditional month end focussed risk management processes.
The EQ Riskfactor software helps Lenders with their daily challenges:
Early detection of fraudulent activity
EQ Riskfactor constantly monitors Client portfolios and detects deteriorating profiles or fraudulent Client activity. Automated alerts highlight deteriorating trends so that risk events are investigated as they occur and not through point in time checks.
EQ Riskfactor’s workflow capabilities streamline many daily activities, for example covenant monitoring, Client reviews and scheduled items such as the collection of information from Clients.
All activity is captured permanently in EQ Riskfactor and provides a single view of risk and a complete audit history helps ensure risk policy is adhered to.

It has embedded workflows to ensure that procedures are being followed properly and rigour is being applied to account management.
