The score is unprecedented in that it looks at and analyzes data at the same point in time on the same consumer records from all three national credit reporting companies. VantageScore was developed using a national sample of anonymous credit information of approximately 15 million consumers and uses a score range of 990-501 and score groupings that approximate the familiar academic scale:
- A: 901-990
- B: 801-900
- C: 701-800
- D: 601-700
- F: 501-600
Take advantage of uniformity
VantageScore is the only commercially available credit risk model built using a synchronized development data sample provided by all three credit reporting companies. Plus, all three credit reporting companies deliver the same algorithm through existing channels. As a result, you can simplify the maintenance and management of single and multiple tier score cut-off strategies.Limit score variations to increase consistency
Make fairer decisions based on more stable scores across each credit reporting company. VantageScore uses leveled credit characteristics across all three national credit reporting companies to limit score variability significantly. This means any score variations are limited to differences in the data maintained by the three companies. In addition, VantageScore applies the same standard method for scoring multiple inquiries to avoid unnecessary impact to a customer’s score.Return to top
