Enhance credit decisions and expand your addressable market

Are you placing too much reliance on traditional credit scores to make important decisions about the creditworthiness of individuals? If so, you could be missing out on thousands of potentially high value customers.


Evaluating trust is about more than just credit history

LexisNexis® RiskView™ UK goes beyond traditional credit reference histories with alternative (non-tradeline) sources of data, to provide greater insight into the creditworthiness of an individual. Using datapoints taken from billions of UK consumer records, RiskView UK enables better informed credit risk assessments, including for customers who may have previously been un-scoreable, because they didn’t have a suitable credit footprint.

RiskView UK supports new credit applications, credit pre-screening and ongoing customer monitoring

Delivered via API and web application, RiskView UK is a credit risk assessment tool that comprises a unique credit score, risk assessment, credit report and over 700 data attributes that can be built into organisations’ risk assessment models. RiskView UK is powered by Crediva, a LexisNexis Risk Solutions company.

A deeper, richer and more accurate view of customers to inform credit risk assessments

Unlike traditional Credit Reference Agencies’ risk scoring products, RiskView UK does not require consumers to have a previous credit history to provide a risk score and assessment. Instead, it leverages alternative information from our extensive data sources, connects it to customer profiles using advanced statistical linking and uses predictive analytics to help support better credit risk decisions.

Extensive Data Universe

Our data, covering almost all adults in the UK, is derived from multiple different public sources and data partnerships. It comprises the latest datapoints from billions of public and proprietary records. As we ingest new identity information, we don’t simply replace the data we have for a customer – we add to it. Current and historical data is part of the customer profile, to create a more complete view of the customer over time, and not just the latest snapshot.


Advanced Linking

We continuously update our data using our own unique identifier, LexID®, together with our proprietary statistical linking process which matches and connects disparate data to the appropriate customer records.

Sophisticated Analytics and Insight

We apply data science and leverage patented algorithms, predictive modelling, machine learning and advanced analytics to provide better decision intelligence.
