Abstract: Current financial market has become proficient enough to cater to the needs of a large customer base. But, at the same time, the number of market catastrophes is on the rise leading to the increase in the demand of precise and potential classifier models. In this work, a hybrid model of clustering and neural network-based classifier has been proposed, i.e., FCM-FLANN-IFFO. Three financial credit risk datasets were applied in the experiment and the model is evaluated using 12 different performance metrics. This novel metaheuristic uses an improved version of fruit fly algorithm which is inspired by the foraging behaviour of the fruit flies to locate their food. The experimental results illustrates that proposed model outperforms other models. The proposed model provides brilliant results with 94.91% of classification accuracy.
