The new Credit 500 - an index of influence in commercial and consumer credit - has been revealed

The new Credit 500 for 2019/20 has been revealed at the Credit Week Gala, where the Women in Credit Awards winners were also announced at a ceremony in London

The new Credit 500 - an index of influence in commercial and consumer credit - has been revealed

In simple terms, the Credit 500 is an index of individuals who shape strategy and conduct across consumer and commercial credit. In recognition of their stature and to help those included build working relationships with one another, Credit Strategy is offering members a series of benefits, which include invites to our events.

 

The Credit 500 recognises and champions the 500 business and divisional leaders who are making a measurable difference in their field, under the umbrella of a credit-related function. The people who make up the index are those who perform roles in several key areas; prudential and credit risk, collections and recoveries, lending, lobbying and compliance.

 

The methodology

There are many elements and people involved in putting together the Credit 500. It starts with the Credit Strategy team collating information about senior individuals in the credit industry throughout the year.

 

This information is amassed through interviews, meetings, conference speeches, award entries, press releases on an individual’s activities, conference slide presentations, LinkedIn updates on an individual’s promotion and activities, news articles and lots of other sources of information.

 

Alongside this information, the team receives nominations from individuals across the industry, which detail those individuals’ achievements and influence, which helps to inform and determine their inclusion.

 

Membership groups

The Credit 500 indexes individuals via a series of membership groups, 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 groups have been created so that innovators, influencers and best practice leaders will receive recognition from their peers, by being part of a smaller, select band of pioneers.

 

Each membership group of the Credit 500 has its own criteria for inclusion. For example, in the Consumer Credit 100 group of the Credit 500, the criteria includes:

  • Ultimate or senior responsibility and oversight for credit risk policy (particularly with regard to SME and consumer lending);
  • Senior or ultimate responsibility for conduct and compliance risk;
  • Influence on the collections and recoveries function, through involvement in setting risk appetite, forbearance policies and arrears treatment;
  • More direct senior or ultimate responsibility for collections and recoveries.

Once each membership group of the Credit 500 is in the final stages of research, individuals from a set of major creditors and trade bodies are consulted, to ensure the right people with the right influence made the final cut.

 

"Credit 500 members will receive a host of benefits from Credit Strategy. In total across the entire index, these benefits are worth over £2.2m"

 

Annual update

The Credit 500 is updated annually, every March, to ensure the 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 recognition.

 

The new Credit 500 for 2019/20 was unveiled at the Credit Week Gala Dinner on March 21 2019, at The Grange, St Paul’s, London. You can see the full Credit 500 for 2019/20 here.

 

The dinner also featured the Women in Credit Awards ceremony, and closed the series of events we hosted and curated during Credit Week.

 

 

The benefits

Credit 500 members will receive a host of benefits from Credit Strategy, depending on the sub category you’re in. In total across the entire index, these benefits are worth over £2.2m.

 

If you’re in the index for the second year running, you get benefits from now until March 21 2020. If you’re in the Credit 500 for the first time as a new member, some of your benefits (such as free tickets to events) won’t kick in until after March 21 2019.

 

Click on your membership group below, to discover which benefits are available to you and when.

 

Discounts on access to exclusive content

Credit 500 members’ benefits (click on your sub-category above) include free access to Premium membership of Credit Strategy.

 

In simple terms that means you’ll get both the print and digital editions of Credit Strategy magazine, as well as access to online Premium content - which includes interviews with chief risk officers such as Julia Dunn, CRO at Nationwide Building Society, (see below), regulators such as the FCA’s Andrew Bailey, also below, and government policy-makers. Premium members also have access to exclusive columns from creditors and consumer debt experts; the magazine archive and finally, The Knowledge Hub.

 

This last section contains a range of insight tools, such as questions answered by conference speakers and their presentation slides at our events.
