Sberbank, Experian, Interfax to create unifed credit bureau in Russia

Savings Bank of the Russian Federation (Sberbank), Interfax Group, and Experian have announced the creation of a unified credit bureau that will improve transparency in the Russian retail lending market, reduce credit risk and provide consumers with better access to credit.

The new bureau will be based on the existing Experian-Interfax bureau infrastructure. Under the new terms agreed, Experian and Interfax will each hold 25% of the joint venture and Sberbank will hold 50%.

The new joint venture will combine the capabilities of Sberbank, Russias biggest bank, Experian, the worlds leading credit bureau operator and Interfax, the leading information agency in Russia.

With the addition of data from Sberbank, the total number of credit agreements in the Experian-Interfax bureau will nearly double to 23m.

As a result of this new combination, organisations will be able to make faster, accurate and more profitable decisions. Russian banks will, for the first time, have broad access to consumer credit histories from Sberbank, as well as to Experians data, software and analytics. In addition, Interfax will provide access to further information resources, such as additional information on borrowers. Interfax will also provide the SPARK database, Russias largest business information database, including data on employers and entrepreneurs.

"Now that we are expanding private lending the existence of a developed credit bureau market allowing us to raise the quality of the risk evaluation of borrowers to a fundamentally new level is essential for us. We hope that our joint project with Interfax and Experian will give an impetus to the development of this market and as a consequence make loans more accessible to a broader circle of Russian citizens and reduce the lending risks of Sberbank as well as other parties to the loan market," Denis Bugrov, Sberbank Senior Vice President, said.

The Chairman of the Board of Directors of Interfax Group, Mikhail Kommisar, commented: "The deal we have announced today is an important event for the entire credit bureau market. It will dramatically increase competition, which will provide higher quality service and support affordable and transparent prices. It effectively ends the era of pocket bureaus in Russia, which only supplied information to outside banks in limited quantities."

Rick Gallagher, Managing Director - EMEA, for Experian, commented: "This new combination represents a further step in Experians strategy to develop its credit bureaux footprint in high growth emerging markets globally. The joint venture will benefit from enhanced data coverage, market-leading technology and a leading position in the Russian market. In addition, the joint venture will provide a platform for the further deployment of our value-added products in Russia, giving clients access to enhanced credit risk and fraud management services."
