(InfraRisk), a leading supplier of credit management solutions in Australia, today announced a new cooperation with Judo Bank to support the neobank’s lending business with a smart and highly efficient cloud-based SaaS solution. Judo Bank is the first challenger bank focused on serving small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) financing needs in Australia, and has been granted a full banking license as an authorised deposit-taking institution (ADI) that has allowed it to launch full deposit-taking capabilities. “InfraRisk has over 10 years of experience in providing services for financial institutions in Australia,” said Nicholas Davies, founder and CEO of InfraRisk. “With our advanced and mature cloud-based solution, we can help Judo Bank service SMEs efficiently to meet their increasing credit needs.” InfraRisk’s solution is centered on Credit Value Maximiser (CVX), an intelligent fully featured credit management platform for a wide range of commercial and corporate lending segments. The modularized tool is built around key origination functionalities, from profile to pricing, with each module connecting via defined APIs.
