Welcome global consumers with a unified credit system
Approximately 2 million newcomers arrive in the United States each year. Credit Passport® enables you access consumer-permissioned international credit data to lend to this underserved market and build loyal customers for life.
How Credit Passport® works
Create a fully branded API experience for your newcomers. With a few simple steps, their international credit report is instantly translated to an equivalent U.S. credit score, tradelines, risk attributes, and other pertinent financial information.
Why Credit Passport®
Increase originations profitability with confidence
On average, newcomers who use Credit Passport® have at least an equivalent prime credit score compared to American consumers.
Improve risk assessment for newcomers
International credit data translated to a U.S. equivalent format helps lenders better assess credit risk for consumers with little to no U.S. credit history.
Build lasting brand loyalty
Financial inclusion initiatives improve brand equity for consumers looking for financial products and services.
