Experian Credit Score claims

We claim that we are the UK’s most trusted score on our website and in our marketing and we’ve got the evidence to back it up.

Every year we commission a survey to find out what the public thinks of Experian and other credit scoring companies.

The most recent survey was hosted by Walnut Unlimited in April 2023 and asked a nationally representative sample of 2015 adults the question below.

"Banks and other financial institutions use credit reports to inform lending decisions. There are several credit report providers who look at your credit history to provide a credit score which helps give you an idea of how banks and other financial institutions may view you when you apply for credit. Which company’s credit score do you think is...?"

We found that half of the respondents (50%) put us in the top spot, saying Experian provides the UK’s most trusted score.

Interviews were conducted across the UK and the results have been weighted to the profile of all adults.

Respondents who did not express an opinion and answered ‘don’t know’ have been excluded from the results, which means the percentage only reflects those who expressed an opinion.

The companies included for comparison were: Experian, Equifax, Totally Money, ClearScore, Check my file, Credit karma, Money supermarket, 'Other' and 'None of these'.
