“I would say these three [metrics] are of a pretty high standard, but you know, Capital One takes great pride in being very, very thorough with these things, and of course Apple had similar standards as well,” Pabba said in a report of CNBC.

His new job at X1 may involve developing the company’s underwriting policies. The startup plans to use data such as bank account access, FICO scores, or information from companies such as Plaid, a financial data transfer company.

Apple is working on a new service with Apple Pay called Apple Pay Later. It’s a feature coming later in 2022 that offers to split purchases into four weekly payments.
