Not as far apart as they seem

Good going; you're the only person I've ever heard of with a perfect Vantage score! But don't despair; 745 on TransRisk is pretty darned good, too (since the TR scale runs only to 850). It's not surprising to see quite different results on Vantage vs TransRisk, because not only do they use different numeric scales; they use different measurements to get there. For instance, the Vantage score is much more heavily weighted to recent activity and is prone to large ups and downs. TransRisk is weighted to longer-term history and tends to go up and down in smaller increments. Unfortunately, nobody can say exactly why your Vantage score is perfect and your TransRisk score merely very, very good. The scoring systems are proprietary and highly secretive.
