September:  Your Credit Score

One of the most important numbers consumers have is their credit score: it affects the ability to purchase a home, buy a car, get a credit card, and other financial decisions — but it can also hinder them. This webinar reviews types of credit scoring models currently used including FICO, Vantage, non-traditional, and bankruptcy risk. Participants will understand why these mathematical assessments were developed and how they can use them to their advantage.
