Predictive scoring modelling is a common approach to measure financial health and credit worthiness in banking. Whilst the latter is a key factor in making decisions for lending, evaluating financial health helps to identify vulnerable customers trending towards financial hardship, who need support. The current macroeconomic uncertainties amplify the importance of extensive flexibility in modelling data solutions so that they can remain effective and adaptive to a volatile economic environment. This workshop is focused on discussing relevant techniques and mathematical methodologies which can help modernise traditional scoring models and accelerate innovation. In summary, the problem definition in the banking context is how automation and optimality can be achieved in a multiobjective problem where a subset of existing data features should be selected by relevance and uniqueness, assigned scoring weights by importance and how a pool of customers can be categorised accordingly using their individual scores and auto-adjusting thresholds of risk classification scales. The key challenge is imposed by the mutual dependency of the three sub-problems and their objectives. Introducing or removing constraints in any of them can change the feasibility and optimality of the others and the overall solution. It is common for traditional scoring models to be mainly focused on the predictive accuracy and their setup is often defined and revised manually, following ad-hoc exploratory data analysis and business-led decision making. An automated optimisation of the data features’ selection, scoring weights and classification thresholds definition can achieve respectively: ▪ Precise financial health evaluation and book classification under changing economic climate; ▪ Development of innovative data-driven solutions to enhance prevention from financial hardship and bankruptcies.
