Bank statements overview
Underwrite with accurate, real-time cash flows enriched with detailed spend and income transaction categories
Our bank statements feature provides data from a linked company’s banking connections. Transactions are enriched with financial category and payment provider information.
Common uses of our bank statements feature include:
Liquidity assessment: determine the borrower's ability to cover short-term expenses and financial obligations.
Financial obligation evaluation: assess the borrower's capability to meet debt payments and other financial commitments.
Cash flow trend analysis: identify patterns and fluctuations in the borrower's cash flow to predict their future financial health.
Revenue analysis: identify all revenue channels of a business using the payment provider enrichment.
Our banking feature consists of the following components, supported across a number of banking data sources.
Accounts: detailed information on a business’ bank accounts including balances, account numbers, and institutions holding the accounts
Transactions: transactions incurred by the bank account
Account balances: balances for a bank account, including the end-of-day batch balance or running balances per transaction
Categorized bank statements: all connected bank accounts and transactions with enrichments in a single endpoint.
We provide the following enrichments via our categorized bank statement component.
Bank transactions lack useful context for underwriting. We have solved this problem by enriching bank transactions with the same financial categories you find on an income statement (profit and loss) and a balance sheet. Lenders can rebuild a cash-based profit and loss using bank data. This gives them a clear and reliable view of borrower affordability.

Businesses often sell across multiple channels, for example, brick and mortar, online or marketplace. We help lenders identify the total revenue of a business by identifying the payment providers in their bank transactions.
