The role we play

We help to give our customers the power to assess, predict and to plan so you may achieve your goals and navigate your world with confidence. Our expertise in data, analytics and technologies, means we give answers, we create coherence and clarity from complexity.

What do you need to succeed in your life — or in your business? 

Everyone has a different answer:

  • Buy your first home or car, send your child to college, grow your business, protect your identity.
  • Maybe you need a loan to buy a reliable car, but you don’t have a credit history and don’t want to end up with the wrong thing.
  • Or perhaps you want to shop online, but don’t want to risk having your identity stolen.
  • Maybe you want to make your business even more efficient and your retirement more secure.

Each of these answers have something in common: Experian. Whether you’re working with us directly or we’re working behind the scenes, we’re there for you, helping you take advantage of every opportunity. 

We believe data has the power to transform lives and societies for the better

The sheer amount of data and information available today might seem overwhelming. But we’re making sense of it in powerful new ways. We’re gathering, analysing, combining and processing data to help you take financial control and achieve your goals, or to better understand and meet the needs of your customers.

Every day, our data and analytics are helping people and businesses to achieve more; individuals to access the financial services they need; people to protect their identities and lives; and economies and societies to flourish.

How we can help

  • If you need a loan, we can help you to get it. We find ways that protect both you and your lender, by forming a more accurate picture of your credit history, or helping you build or take control of your credit.
  • If you’re a business owner, we make it easier to connect with your customers, while safely protecting their information.
  • If you’re a police officer, an online bank or a teacher equipping the next generation with basic financial skills, we can help you.

How we can make a difference

We aim to have a positive effect on the communities in which we live and work. From teaching unemployed young people the interview skills they need to get a job, to helping charities expand so they can feed and shelter even more people, we’re using our expertise to make a difference.

How we work

At the same time, how we work is as important as what we do. We recognize that our work carries with it an enormous responsibility, and our guiding principle is to treat everyone fairly and their data with respect.
