Consumer Credit Reporting Education Program
Experian organizes a range of Consumer Credit Reporting Education Program throughout the year in order to raise public awareness about the role of Credit Reporting Agencies, helping them to understand the importance of their credit information, the ways in which they can ensure it gives them the best chance of getting new credit etc. when they need it. Some credit education topics include:
- Understanding credit score factors
- Learn how to improve your credit score
- Why your credit history is critical?
- How to create a positive credit history?
- Why lenders and credit grantors use credit score?
- Steps to protect yourself from identity theft
- Become an educated consumer
We intend to share with the general consumer public, what credit information that is generally reported on them and how credit information and their credit profile is being used as one of the factors by credit grantors in their credit evaluation and credit decision making process. We will also take the opportunity to share recent trends in consumer behaviour as observed in our daily work.
Experian endeavours to play a social role in building a healthy consumer credit landscape in Malaysia which is sustainable and responsible over a long period. Additionally, we believe that the use of these communication channels to share with the public the changing trends in consumer spending and credit enables the average consumer to make more informed lifelong credit and financial decisions.
