The initiative

Big Issue Invest (the social investment arm of The Big Issue Group), in partnership with Experian, has developed The Rental Exchange to tackle the financial, digital and social exclusion challenges faced by rental tenants in the UK compared to homeowners. By observing rental payment data in the same way we view mortgage payment data, we can unlock a range of benefits for tenants, housing providers and credit providers.

The Rental Exchange incorporates a tenant's payment history in their credit file in a secure and compliant way, with no cost to either the housing provider or tenant.
