Today’s UK credit lenders are faced with heightened complexity. The profiles of businesses you lend to are changing and the economic landscape is increasingly unstable.

Understanding how to navigate and thrive in complexity starts with truly understanding your own portfolio and your position in market. Experian’s Commercial CAIS Insight Dashboard compiles data from our Commercial Bureau, an industry-leading source of credit information on UK businesses, to help lenders benchmark themselves against the market. 

The dashboard includes 5 key reports: 

  1. Accounts and lending summary - a useful overview of your portfolio’s monthly accounts and lending.
  2. Portfolio split – a monthly breakdown of your portfolio vs the market so you can assess the spread of your portfolio against the market.
  3. Percentage of lending – monthly comparison of your accounts and lending performance against the market to understand the trajectory of your lending.
  4. Regional concentration – monthly regional spread of accounts and lending vs the market to understand where you may be over or under exposed.
  5. Trends over time – filter your portfolio by a range of segments including account type, sector, region, risk score, credit limit to view and assess trends and behaviours over time in your portfolio vs the market.
