Credit Monitoring - UK - March 2019
Covered in this report
For the purposes of this report, the terms “credit scoring” and “credit monitoring” are used interchangeably to describe the services people use to access information about their credit score and credit history.
This report focuses on consumer use of credit monitoring services, rather than B2B (Business-to-Business) services. It does not look at the role of credit references agencies in detail but instead focuses on consumer-facing brands and providers
“Mintel expects more and more people to start using credit scoring services over the coming years. Consumers will continue to be interested in using their own data to help inform financial decisions, especially among younger age groups.As managing finances moves away from a focus on individual products, to a platform-type approach using open banking technology, access to credit scoring services will become an integral part of consumer finances.”
– Deborah Osguthorpe, Category Director, UK Financial Services Research
This report looks at the following areas:
