The First Credit Bureau of Kazakhstan with the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus launched a scoring model that predicts probability of a borrower’s default for Belarusian financial organizations.

Ruslan Omarov, СЕО of the FCB notes: “This is the first experience for us especially with the foreign regulator. Previously, we focused more on the commercial sector. Today, we are selling more than 3 million scorings of bureau only in Kazakhstan, and there are more than 100 different predictive models, which we develop for customers forecast of different events based on various standards including IFRS9. In general, our consulting group already works in the international segment”.
