PayNet announces Risk Insight Suite, a new interactive platform, providing instant access to credit performance data and industry analysis on the small business sector of the economy.
U.S. small businesses account for roughly 50% of GDP and 65% of U.S. new job creation, while remaining a growth engine for U.S. banks.
Because small businesses generally respond to changes in economic conditions more rapidly than larger businesses, these indices, which are leading economic indicators of GDP by 2 – 5 months, provide an early view of the economic trends, says the company.
At Risk Insight Suite, users can access credit performance data including lending activity and loan delinquencies by geographic region and industry sectors, and probability of default at the national, state and county levels for 21 industry sectors.
“PayNet is providing a unique window to examine small business lending and credit trends compiled from our real-time proprietary database,” states William Phelan, president of PayNet.
“Users of Risk Insight Suite have access to the performance of small business credit by industry and geography to identify opportunities for portfolio growth, and accurately forecast default rates to balance risk and reward.”
Aimed at providing commercial lenders, regulators, policy makers, media and institutional investors with increased data transparency and analytics, users can benchmark their C&I growth against an objective index, reduce the uncertainty of entering new markets with probability of default, and can even use this intelligence to lower operating costs.
PayNet Inc. is a leading provider of credit ratings on small businesses enabling lenders to achieve optimal risk management, growth and operational efficiencies.
