Innovation is at the heart of our business and our culture.

 

It is one of the reasons we’re proud to be named one of the top 100 most innovative companies in the world for the fifth year in a row by Forbes magazine. In the publication’s eighth annual list of the “World’s Most Innovative Companies,” Experian climbed to rank 57th.

 

Technology, innovation and new sources of data are fusing to create a number of new ways for us to solve pressing business and consumer challenges. This underscores our commitment to innovation, and using the power of data and technology to transform lives, businesses and economies for the better.

 

At Experian, we have created a culture of continuous innovation focused on opportunities for businesses and consumers in today’s digital and data economy. As one milestone, our Experian MicroAnalytics work has extended over 5 billion credit offers to the world’s unbanked people.

 

Experian has jumped up 40 places in this year’s Forbes ranking, placing us alongside some of the world’s leading technology companies including Tesla, Netflix and Amazon. This accolade demonstrates investors’ confidence in Experian’s ability to innovate, both today and in the years ahead, and is a testament to the tireless work of our employees.

 

Even more exciting is that we’re leading our industry in innovation. Experian is the only credit bureau to make the list this year!

 

And innovation experts agree. According to author Greg Satell, who profiled Experian in his highly touted business book Mapping Innovation: A Playbook for Navigating a Disruptive Age, “Experian is the manifestation of a culture of discovery that enables it to grow and evolve while remaining at the forefront of innovation.”

 

The key to our success going forward is to continue to actively seek out unresolved problems and create new products and technologies that will help transform the way businesses operate and consumers thrive in today’s society.
