TransUnion’s history in the UK


In 2018 TransUnion acquired Callcredit, one of the UK’s largest credit reference agencies (CRA). Over the course of nearly two decades, Callcredit built a reputation as a consumer-first tech disruptor. This included the pioneering over-indebtedness initiative (OII), designed to improve lenders’ understanding of customer indebtedness and ability to repay, the development of solutions to minimise fraud risk across different industries and free credit scores for life for consumers with Noddle (subsequently purchased by Credit Karma).

TransUnion has accelerated this evolution, investing in solutions that bring UK and international businesses and consumers closer together and creating greater confidence in the decisions they make. In 2019, we launched our proprietary Open Banking platform that helps businesses make more informed lending decisions and consumers served quickly with appropriate offers, TrueVision, a trended data solution that uses new customer insights to transform the way finance providers understand and evaluate their customers, and CreditView which gives lenders an array of tools to help improve consumers’ financial knowledge and planning.

Working across established and emerging industries including banking, utilities, retail and gaming, we play a pivotal role in the end-to-end consumer journey helping customers onboard and manage consumer relationships in a positive way. Likewise, as data custodians we look to encourage consumers to understand their data identity and how it can help them make better decisions.
