Experian was recently named one of 2016’s Top 100 Fintech Companies by American Banker, joining the ranks of companies such as Thomson Reuters and FIS. This announcement comes less than two months after being named among Forbes Magazine’s Top 100 “World’s Most Innovative Companies” for the third year in a row.
Ranking near the top at #13, this American Banker listing is further evidence of our commitment to innovation and creating a better world through data. All of us at Experian take this commitment very seriously, and we’re proud that every day our data and analytics are helping people and businesses to achieve more.
The American Banker and Forbes rankings also confirm that Experian is much more than a credit bureau. We believe data has the power to transform lives and societies for the better, and we’re making sense of it in powerful new ways that others can’t.
One example of our innovative approach to solving big-picture problems around the world is our Experian DataLabs, staffed by teams of scientists with Ph.D.’s and applied research practitioners with expertise in advanced analytics and machine learning. This team helps businesses solve strategic marketing and risk-management problems through advanced data analysis. Using applied research and development we work to increase profitability, optimize data assets, control financial risk and ensure regulatory compliance for our clients. We’re also looking at data in new ways to help companies better identify fraud to protect themselves and the customers they serve.
Experian’s innovative capabilities also help people get the financial services they need. We’re uncovering new, ground-breaking ways to build clearer pictures of people’s financial situations, and we’re helping people use these insights to take better control of their future.
By collecting, combining and analyzing data, Experian is powering opportunities to help people plan for and build a better tomorrow. I’m confident that we’ll continue to take hold of these opportunities to unlock the true power of data in the years to come.
