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

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

The full membership of the Credit 500 was announced at the gala, featuring the Women in Credit Awards, at the Royal Lancaster hotel in west London.

 

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 relationships with one another, Credit Strategy is offering members a series of benefits, which include invites to our events.

 

Find the new Credit 500 here.

 

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 five key areas; credit risk, collections, lending, lobbying and compliance.

 

Put together with nominations by senior professionals working in both the consumer and commercial credit professions, the index was also discussed with a select group of business leaders in the two spectrums, to ensure the right people with the right influence made the final cut.

 

The Credit 500 indexes 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 receive recognition from their peers, by being part of a smaller, select group of pioneers.

 

"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 Credit 500 for the previous year, from March 2017 to March 2018, closes on March 15 2018 - the date of the Credit Summit and Credit 500 Gala dinner. At the dinner, the new Credit 500 for 2018/19 is announced, kick-starting the period for the new index of influence for another 12 months.

 

If you attended the event and would like the chance to win a magnum of vintage champagne, fill in this form.

 

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 18 2019. 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 18 2018.

 

Click on your sub category 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 The Credit Club.

 

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, regulators (such as the FCA’s Andrew Bailey below) and government policy-makers; 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.
