Lexin has been named a finalist for "International Innovator of the Year" at this year's LendIt Fintech Industry Awards.

The winner will be announced at the LendIt Fintech Industry Awards Show and Dinner on April 10th in San Francisco.
Lexin strategically focuses on serving the credit needs of educated young adults in China and capturing their long-term growth potential. A significant portion of educated young adults have been underserved by traditional financial institutions. The company's online consumer finance and e-commerce platform, Fenqile, offers convenient and affordable installment loans. Lexin has developed proprietary end-to-end loan origination, decisioning, loan management and servicing platform, which is designed to optimize customer experience.
Lexin's innovations in risk management include the automated and dynamic credit assessment engine, Hawkeye, which generates an integrated credit risk assessment and approval decision. Lexin has developed more than 1,000 decisioning rules utilizing 5,000 potential data variables, and accumulated a massive amount of proprietary data. Automation and data capabilities allow Lexin to perform a more comprehensive credit analysis of its customers than traditional financial institutions.
Lexin has also innovated in fund distribution and asset management using its proprietary Wormhole system, which connects customers and funding partners' systems in real time, and allocates qualified customer loan assets to various funding sources with different risk-and-return parameters. This allows Lexin's funding partners to deploy their capital in a more cost-effective manner, and to gain access to relatively high quality, low-risk borrowers.
