FinLocker leverages AllData® Aggregation from Fiserv to help consumers plan for their financial futures while enabling lenders to gain CRA credits.
With AllData Aggregation, FinLocker's data aggregation tools enable people - including low-to-moderate-income consumers to access financial planning insights, resources and advice. Financial institutions are able to streamline data collection and validation, and receive CRA credits for work with underserved communities.
By providing real-time, secure, verified data, AllData Aggregation enables FinLocker to help both lenders and consumers more fully understand where people are on the road to financial health.
"In my prior role as an executive at Flagstar Bank, I saw the value of FinLocker in providing consumers, especially those who are underserved, with an intuitive and insightful platform to assist in their journey towards homeownership," said Brian Vieaux, President of FinLocker.
Because AllData Aggregation can be used to provide financial planning and education tools to historically underserved populations, it also provides additional opportunities for lending institutions. As Vieaux explained, "Since joining [FinLocker], we have engaged several community banks to help them improve their CRA rating by partnering with FinLocker."
FinLocker empowers consumers to start, achieve and continue their homeownership journeys. This secure, transactional personal financial management tool aggregates a consumer's financial data, adding the ability to analyze, recommend and streamline financial transactions. Consumers benefit from personalized recommendations, mortgage and financial education, credit score reports and monitoring, cash flow analysis, budgeting, goal planning, and data sharing. Lenders utilize FinLocker to nurture leads, cross-sell value-add products, reduce costs and create customers for life. The company is headquartered in St. Louis, MO.

Financial institutions use AllData Aggregation through FinLocker to provide consumers with access to educational content, credit reports, and tailored budgeting and goal planning tools. An independent legal analysis indicated that banks should expect to receive CRA consideration for the benefits FinLocker provides to LMI consumers.
When we originally used AllData Aggregation, we were excited about the options it gave us to help lenders create a digital borrowing process. We quickly saw a larger opportunity by repositioning the financial locker and providing [information] to consumers before they apply for a loan. The real benefit we can provide is to nurture, prepare and educate consumers so they are better informed and prepared to act when the time is right.
