With Experian Affordability, we make sure you can treat every customer as an individual; helping them meet their needs and goals by better understanding their personal circumstances.

Our Affordability Passport enables a consumer to give consent to share their bank transaction data in a single data passport to show their income, expenditure and credit commitments.

How Affordability Passport works

The account information is analysed by our CaaS®, automated transaction engine - which interprets raw account information and categorises this into 186 blocks of income and expenditure, through our CaaS machine learning algorithms. The income and expenditure report can be delivered alongside the individuals credit file providing a complete view of their financial circumstances. Once the data is submitted the organisation will be notified via email or web hook that it is available for review, data delivery takes as little as 800

The customer and provider journey can be accessed through the Experian’s portal or directly integrated into your online platform, using our secure URLs or RESTful APIs.
