News & Trends

Keeping up with your credit these days means being able to decipher the headlines when things change in the economy, interest rates rise or fall, or another major identity breach occurs, to how it might affect you personally. While we might not all have a keen interest in personal finance news, knowing more about what’s happening in the world at large can help you connect the dots to your own current credit situation. Helping you stay informed and make solid plans for the future? That’s always a good idea.

At Experian, when credit makes the news, we’ll help you make sense of it. Stay connected to the world of credit news and build your credit knowledge when you keep up with today’s current events.
