We view ourselves as the "Consumers' Bureau," and we have a responsibility to all consumers seeking credit. That means providing lenders with a holistic view into consumers' financial situations. To that end, we have long supported the use of rental, utilities and telecom payment data to augment credit history, and believe it is crucial for rebuilding and establishing the credit reputations of credit invisible and thin-file consumers.
We are committed to finding new and innovative ways to use data in the credit scoring process to improve financial access.
