ID Analytics estimates that within a year of inception the Online Lending Network has achieved visibility into 75 percent of U.S. domestic marketplace lending activity, and continues to add new members including online, marketplace, specialty finance and social lenders. Since its initial rollout in October 2016, consortium membership has grown by 50 percent.

“An industry consortium, such as the Online Lending Network, is a very effective way to bring businesses together to fight fraud,” said Patrick Reemts, vice president, credit risk solutions, ID Analytics. “As we continue to grow the consortium, we expect it to only create more value for members by further reducing credit and fraud risk.”

About the Online Lending Network

The Online Lending Network is a near real-time repository for online loan activity. It leverages cross-industry data found in ID Analytics’ ID Network® to better assess a consumer’s current level of credit risk and detect fraudulent activity. Consortium members report when a consumer requests an offer for a loan product, submits a loan application, or when a loan is funded. In return, the member receives information on whether that consumer has either requested other loan offers or applied for loans elsewhere in the days, hours or minutes before. The near real-time nature of the response makes high-velocity fraud, like loan stacking, very difficult and can help protect authentic consumers from overextending their credit capacity.

Through the Online Lending Network lenders also have access to tools to evaluate credit risk and fraud risk, and detect potential identity theft, as online lenders are a target for fraudsters using stolen identities.
