As a CAIS member, you contribute data on all your customers’ credit accounts and account behaviour from the last six years. In return, you get access to the equivalent data from over 400 banks, lenders, insurers and utility and telecoms companies – virtually every major lending organisation in the UK.
CAIS is a membership driven data sharing network that collects and distributes credit data on both Consumer and Commercial accounts. Consumer CAIS offers around 550 million credit accounts per month making CAIS one of the largest sources of UK consumer credit commitments. Commercial CAIS is a shared database of around 18 million commercial credit accounts' credit history maintained by Experian. All major financial institutions and creditors engaged in commercial lending activities will share details of their business customers' credit commitments and how they’re performing within them. In addition Experian has access to Commercial Credit Data Sharing data of approximately 10 million records from the 9 designated banks which is a very similar model to Commercial CAIS data.Download product sheet
