Affordability Assessment

Make sure that your customers are being treated fairly and are getting the right credit solution for them by implementing affordability assessments throughout your business. 

Our affordability solutions allow you to seamlessly process new applications so you can assess your customer’s current financial situation, validate affordability and income without the need for manual intervention. 

With increased regulatory attention, indebtedness levels remaining high and many consumers suffering from an unprecedented squeeze on their disposable incomes a robust affordability assessment is an increasingly crucial aspect of credit management.

TransUnion have been working with our clients to extract value from affordability data since the creation of The Over-Indebtedness Initiative in 2006 when the leading high street banks joined forces with TransUnion to launch a responsible lending initiative, looking at consumer indebtedness and affordability.
