Experian’s Affordability Passport enables consumers to consent and share their bank account information through a secure, easy to use customer journey to show their income, expenditure, and affordability position.

The data is analysed and categorised for trends and insight within seconds and can be accessed using our Affordability Portal or integrated with your systems through API end-points, so you can assess the consumers affordability and make decisions, based on real data rather than estimates.

And by automating the capture, categorisation, and verification of bank transactions, you can save time, resource and increase efficiency while providing a quicker, better, tailored experience for the consumer.

With Affordability Passport you can treat every consumer as an individual by better understanding their financial health at every stage of the lifecycle.


Today, more than ever, measuring a consumer’s affordability is a challenge. Affordability Passport can help you make the right decisions at the right time with a better understanding of a consumer’s personal circumstances.

As Credit consumption is changing with new forms appearing such as BNPL and salary advance, without better, more personalised insight the wrong affordability decisions may be made, leading to consumer detriment and regulatory breaches.

Affordability passport gives you the tools to get a better understanding of a consumer’s individual financial circumstances at every stage of your relationship with them:

  • View all income streams, source of income, the amount and frequency from connected bank accounts
  • View a consumer’s essential, committed, and discretionary expenditure
  • Identify customer behavioural trends and spot signs of financial vulnerability when assessing income and expenditure across time periods

And we give you the option to include extra insights: Identity Verification, PEPS & Sanctions Screening and Work Report Employment verification for a complete view of a consumer’s financial circumstances.
