Prescient Models LLC was founded by Joe Breeden to expand the adoption of best-in-class models across many application areas. Whether via consulting or product development partnerships, we can help you get a better vision of the future.
Models and analytics are undergoing a revolution. The recent financial crises highlighted for everyone the inadequacy of overly simplistic past approaches. New data and new techniques allow us to achieve real understanding of portfolio dynamics for retail lending where those problems originated, and across many other industries as well.
We can also improve the techniques with which businesses, lenders, and government regulators judge the effectiveness of their models. We should never again be in a position of not even knowing if our models are effective.
