by April 16, 2024

FinbotsAI, a Singapore-based fintech company specialising in AI credit scoring, has partnered with KBZ Bank, one of Myanmar’s largest privately-owned bank. This marks KBZ Bank as its first client in the country.

KBZ Bank operates over 500 branches and serves approximately 40% of Myanmar’s retail and commercial banking sectors. The bank had previously launched a mobile wallet, KBZPay, in 2018  which currently has over 15 million users.

This collaboration aims to introduce AI-led credit risk management to KBZ Bank, enhancing its ability to assess creditworthiness across retail and SME products with greater accuracy and efficiency.

Through this partnership, KBZ Bank will deploy FinbotsAI’s CreditX platform, which offers real-time, paperless loan assessments and aims to reduce the time needed to develop and deploy scoring models to under a week.

These advancements are expected to lower credit risks and enhance operational efficiencies within the bank’s lending operations.

According to FinbotsAI, the decision to select CreditX followed an extensive evaluation of various solution providers, with KBZ Bank choosing its platform for its speed and accuracy.

FinbotsAI’s solution has reportedly improved loan approval rates by 20%, reduced risk by 15%, and cut credit risk operating costs by over 50% on average.
