This is made up from individuals in various roles at creditors, debt purchasers, lawyers, regulators, trade bodies and other firms that have a made a difference in their related field.

The Credit 500 recognises individuals via a series of sub-categories, which relate to factors such as their job role and responsibilities, the sector they operate in, lobbying and industry representation and whether they work in a consumer or commercial credit role.


These sub-categories have been created so that innovators and best practice leaders will be recognised among their peers, by being part of a smaller, select group.


The Credit 500 is broken down as follows:

  • Consumer Credit 100
  • Utilities & Telecoms 75
  • European NPL 75
  • Influencers 50
  • Car Finance 50
  • Trade Credit 50
  • Commercial Finance 50
  • Knowledge and professional services 50

Credit 500 members will also receive a host of benefits from Credit Strategy. One of the most notable will be free attendance to a number of our conferences, awards and dinners throughout the year.


As well as rewarding those who have made the index, this will ensure our events host the most senior and influential members of their respective sectors, meaning our events remain the place where discussions are shaped, deals brokered and decisions made.


The list will be updated manually to ensure the Credit 500 index remains a current and accurate reflection of the most notable personalities. Those who are entered into the Credit 500, will also be recognised in a Hall of Fame, preserving their achievements.
