Who or what is FICO?


Founded in 1956, Fair Isaac Corporation (FICO) uses advanced math and analytics to help businesses make smarter decisions. One of FICO’s inventions is FICO® Scores, which are the most widely used credit scores in lending decisions. It is important to note that while FICO works with the consumer reporting agencies (CRAs) to provide your FICO® Scores, it does not have access to or store any of your personal data or determine the accuracy of the information in your credit file.
