Lobel Financial Clears a Path for Fast Funding and Robust Fraud Fighting in Partnership with Point Predictive

Full spectrum auto lender completes Auto Fraud Manager™ implementation that proves the power of sophisticated AI fraud scores and operational fraud alerts



SAN DIEGO, CA (BUSINESSWIRE) – October 4, 2021 – Point Predictive Inc., the San Diego-based company that provides machine learning solutions to lenders, announced today that Lobel Financial has successfully completed its Auto Fraud Manager™ implementation after proving that the availability of its unique, real-time Consortium fraud alerts and sophisticated fraud scores substantially enhances its own predictive models, helps determine more appropriate stipulations or waivers, and improves the speed and quality of funding decisions. With Auto Fraud Manager in production, Lobel will use Point Predictive’s fraud alerts and scores in real-time within the lender’s native loan origination environment across its entire loan application volume.

In feedback delivered to Point Predictive, the risk management department at Lobel Financial described the benefits of enhancing its in-house models through its Consortium approach. Auto Fraud Manager “makes our operation better at reducing loss while eliminating unnecessary friction for trustworthy borrowers.” Also, the unique scores and alerts “give us data that we’d never see in our own silo.”

The Anaheim-based full-spectrum auto lender’s enthusiasm stems from key features of the Consortium-based solution that address elevated risks of fraud. Such predictive features include geographic proximity to prior fraud, repetition or manipulation of Social Security numbers, income misrepresentation, synthetic identity fraud, and suspicious claims of employment or sources of income.

Lobel Financial’s experience provides yet another proof point that Point Predictive’s cross-industry fraud Consortium, combined with its patented Artificial + Natural Intelligence™, delivers a real-time, automated lending experience that is both borrower- and dealer-friendly.

Tim Grace, Co-Founder and CEO of Point Predictive, described how his company’s advanced data science can modernize lending operations. “Auto Fraud Manager is a solution powered by unique automotive finance data that reduces or eliminates a wide range of fraud and misrepresentation risks.” He continued, “By intelligently automating aspects of the lending decision, lenders can confidently grow their portfolios and deliver a modern borrower experience that gets more trustworthy people into the cars they need.” He concluded by thanking Lobel for its partnership. “Collaboration and innovative data science are principles that we share with Lobel and we’re thrilled to work with their team.”
