FICO Score 10 T Adoption Reaches Significant Milestone by Serving $300 Billion in Eligible Mortgage Portfolios

Liberty Home Mortgage latest to proactively adopt FICO’s newest, most innovative and predictive scoring model

FICO World – Today at FICO® World, the industry's leading analytic and AI event, analytics software leader FICO (NYSE: FICO) announced a significant milestone in the adoption of FICO® Score 10 T by the mortgage industry. Since 2023, clients with over $100 billion in annualized mortgage originations and approximately $300 billion in eligible mortgage portfolio servicing have signed up for the FICO Score 10 T.

Additionally, Liberty Home Mortgage is the latest to choose to adopt FICO® Score 10 T for non-conforming loans. It joins a growing number of mortgage lenders embracing FICO’s newest, most innovative, and most predictive scoring model.

Among the pioneering organizations to embrace FICO® Score 10 T for non-conforming mortgage loans are: Movement Mortgage, a top 10 retail mortgage lender; CrossCountry Mortgage (CCM), the nation’s number three retail mortgage lender; Primis Mortgage, a subsidiary of Primis Bank; and Premier Lending Inc. (Premier Lending), a family-owned Charlotte, N.C., based mortgage leader and more.

Liberty Home Mortgage’s proactive adoption of the new model results from FICO’s strategic relationship with Lenders One® Cooperative, a national alliance of independent mortgage bankers, banks and credit unions dedicated to helping its members maximize revenue, reduce costs, and improve decision making. Lenders One connects members with preferred solution and technology providers and is the first organization of its kind to collaborate with FICO to support member education and adoption of FICO® Score 10 T.

“Liberty Home Mortgage is always striving to promote homeownership, and we believe that FICO continues to work tirelessly to help more consumers become homeowners and better fulfill the American Dream,” said Khash Saghafi, president of Liberty Home Mortgage Corporation. “FICO is such a long-established and well-respected pillar of the financing industry that we jumped at the chance to work closely with them and their amazing team to help consumers and move this industry forward.”

Introduced in 2020, FICO® Score 10 T incorporates trended credit bureau data to further enhance the score’s predictive power. Lenders using FICO Score 10 T for non-conforming mortgage products can better evaluate new applications in real-time and can make more data-driven lending decisions.

“We are seeing incredible momentum with lenders realizing the power of our most innovative and predictive score, FICO Score 10 T,” said Joe Zeibert, vice president of Mortgage and Capital Markets at FICO. “FICO is looking forward to enabling more lenders to make better informed credit decisions, while responsibly helping more consumers achieve the dream of homeownership.”

Zeibert, along with Jason Stenger, chief operating officer of Movement Mortgage, were featured speakers at FICO® World on Tuesday, April 16, discussing how the latest scoring models can increase liquidity for lenders and help more Americans realize their dreams of homeownership.

As pointed out by Stenger, FICO Score® 10 T can provide greater precision in making lending decisions. The model can be used by lenders to better manage credit risk and default rates when extending competitive credit offers to consumers. FICO Score 10 T can enable an increase in mortgage originations of up to 5 percent (without taking on additional credit risk) and reduce default risk and losses by up to 17 percent. The increased predictive power can also help lenders project cash flow more accurately.

FICO is committed to assisting mortgage industry participants looking to transition to its most current model, FICO® Score 10 T. The FICO Score Migration Resource Center provides a detailed guide to support organizations through their score transition with key planning steps and activities, in addition to implementation best practices.
