A start-up built on gaining competitive advantage

Callcredit was formed in 2000, out of a business that focused on marketing information and quickly evolved into a challenger to the main credit reference bureaus. Since then we’ve worked with HBOS, HSBC, Lloyds TSB and RBS to launch the over-indebtedness initiative (OII), designed to improve lenders’ understanding of their customers’ indebtedness and ability to repay, enhanced our portfolio by purchasing specialist businesses such DecisionMetrics, numero, Recipero and most recently the Spanish Confirma group of companies, comprising of Confirma Sistemas and Soluciones Confirma, that specialise in fraud prevention and anti-money laundering (AML) software solutions. 

We are now the UK’s second largest credit reference agency (CRA) with professionals based in Leeds, London, Stockport, Warrington and Kent, and international offices in Spain, the U.S., Dubai and Lithuania, all complemented by agents working across international markets. In June 2018 Callcredit was acquired by TransUnion Learn more.

Our team are brought together by four core principles;

  • Being relentlessly innovative. They constantly look for better ways to deliver solutions, solve problems and serve clients
  • They are deeply curious problem solvers. We find what truly matters for clients because we are inherently inquisitive. 
  • Being People ‘people’. We know that at the start and end of every data point are people with real lives and goals. That knowledge drives everything we do and how we do it. 
  • Possessing ironclad integrity. We set rigorous performance standards for ourselves— especially in our dealings with others. Words like ‘trust.’ ‘transparency’ and ‘integrity’ are fundamental to the way we work.

This foundation supports our future ambition; to become the UK leader in consumer insight, decisions and engagement while growing its business and reputation worldwide.
