Monzo has announced it is to start reporting information to Experian, in a partnership that will see the lender sharing current account and loan data for the first time.
Experian has continued to expand its credit information bureau by adding new and relevant financial information into the equation, so that clients get the broadest view of financial behaviour available.
Customers will see Monzo information appear on their Experian credit reports in the coming months.
