How It Works

Dun & Bradstreet, as a designated Credit Reference Agency acts as a portal for shared banking CCDS* data enabling UK financial institutions engaged in business lending to make more robust / quicker decisions. D&B Lending Intelligence augments the base shared data with thousands of other metrics and analytics on a loan applicant enabling a lender to more efficiently manage risk and identify opportunity. With significantly more firmographics, payment insights, corporate linkage and commercial credit scores, lenders can make more forward-thinking judgements.

* Commercial Credit Data Sharing (CCDS) is a UK government initiative mandated under the Small Business Enterprise & Employment Act 2015, with the aim of actively stimulating competition and new entrants in lending markets particularly for enterprises with annual revenues below £25million GBP. CCDS requires banking institutions to make available detailed business current account data and up-to-date information on the performance of business loans and corporate credit cards for all their commercial customers who meet the above criteria.
