CHICAGO, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- As a value add to its auto loan-related statistical analyses, TransUnion will begin offering Black Book® vehicle values and loan-to-value (LTV) models to the auto industry. Combining Black Book's vehicle values with TransUnion's loan balance data to generate the (LTV) models, this retrospective analysis will allow auto lenders to better formulate decision-making criteria and competitive strategies.
"Finding hidden opportunities for growth or better understanding layered risk has always been important for the automotive lenders we serve," said Jason Laky, vice president of product strategy at TransUnion. "Collateral data has become a critical piece of that puzzle. Adding Black Book values to our analysis and LTV models only strengthen what we can offer to our lenders."
Black Book's current and historical vehicle values allow collateral values to be evaluated at the time of a loan's application or at later points in the life cycle. This analysis provides an in-depth look at how LTV ratios move over the life of a loan, helping lenders monitor equity levels and credit quality. Having a better understanding of these variables can help the industry better predict frequency and severity of losses as well as create opportunities for growth.
