About CSRSA

The Credit Scoring and Risk Strategy Association (CSRSA) is a unique not-for-profit organization devoted to the advancement of consumer and small business lending with focus on credit/operational credit risk management processes, governance, predictive modeling, and fraud management. The CSRSA provides an organized forum where its members can learn, share, and remain current with the latest advancements, trends and issues in their industry.

The CSRSA is managed by volunteers from the financial services industry and is financially supported by vendors who are industry leaders in developing and providing credit risk management products and/or services. Founded in 1992, the organization has grown substantially and now holds four General Meetings, at least one educational seminar and an Annual Conference each year.

Members of the CSRSA meet four times a year in downtown Toronto. A typical general meeting could include a:

  • panel discussion on a topic of interest to our members (eg. Privacy, Fraud),
  • new product or service presentation from one of our Sponsors,
  • presentation from an industry expert.

Of course, informal networking is a very important component of these meetings. In addition to the general meetings, the CSRSA holds an annual conference each Spring in the late May/early June timeframe.

I enjoyed the conference and found the material to be very engaging and informative, especially for someone new to the industry. My favourite sessions were the Economic Update, the impact on recent real estate policy changes, and using advanced analytics to generate alternative deal structures in auto lending.

The Conference is very well organized with a good mix of industry knowledge sharing and networking opportunities. The Economics Update session presented by Craig Alexander from Conference Board of Canada was amazing and it's probably the best Economics Update I've ever heard.

An inspiring session I found was Understanding Dynamics in the Payment Hierarchy, talking about which debt obligation would be paid by consumers first when they faced financial difficulties.

The machine learning session presented by Capital One was impressive with a detailed case study on in-sourcing digital marketing.
