Proprietary, real-time alternative credit data to enable more
complete analysis of its underwriting portfolio

FactorTrust®, The Alternative Credit Bureau™, today announced the
addition of Lobel Financial to its growing list of financial service
companies implementing its alternative credit data into their credit
decisioning process.

Lobel Financial, a consumer finance company specializing in purchasing
and servicing automobile contracts from independent and franchised
automobile dealers, is using FactorTrust data in a custom scorecard to
augment other inhouse credit strategies.

The company selected FactorTrust to implement its alternative credit
data to help them achieve more lift and better separation of good and
poor credit performers.

"We looked closely at what FactorTrust could offer, and decided that its
many attributes, delivered in real-time, would help us best reach our
goal of establishing enhanced segmentation for the development of our
new internal scorecard," said Lobel Financial President Harvey Lobel.

"Using alternative credit data is a proactive choice for industry
leaders like Lobel Financial, who are faced with the challenge of
effectively and intelligently managing risk on the underbanked market,"
said FactorTrust CEO Greg Rable. "The addition of FactorTrust's
proprietary data opens up their options in determining the best credit
performers for their business. It allows a complete picture of
consumers, who are often considered credit invisible, but are really
just credit inaccurate due to lack of data."

FactorTrust has long-provided alternative credit data, analytics and
risk scoring information that lenders need to make informed decisions
about consumers. It is differentiated from the Big 3 bureaus by its more
than 250 million unique, behavioral and transactional data points
untapped by these traditional sources.
