Are New FICO Credit Score on the Way?

FICO announced that it would release its latest credit scoring model called FICO Score 9 this summer.  The last time FICO released a new scoring model was FICO Score 8 in 2008.  As with all credit scoring models, a credit score is an indicator for consumer creditworthiness.

The development of new score models take years and more time for lenders to adopt it.  The rollout and adoption of a new credit scoring model is similar to the release of new software.

According to FICO, the new credit models under FICO Score 9 will tend to more definitively separate responsible from irresponsible credit consumers.  According to Frederic Huynh, a scientist for FICO, most responsible consumers score higher on FICO Score 9 and irresponsible consumers score lower.
