We’re incredibly proud of our work with ClearScore over the past few years, putting credit scores on the public agenda which, as our ‘financial CVs’, have a huge impact on all our lives.
And this November was no exception, as we launched the second annual ClearScore money managers map. Using over two million credit scores from across the country, we mapped out which areas of the country had the best credit scores, as well as those areas in need of improvement. This year, Shetland Islanders and the people of Kingston upon Themes topped the list, while Sunderland had the lowest average credit score.
This matters because, as ClearScore’s Justin Basini told the Times, lenders will sometimes look at your “postcode profile” (the credit scores of the people who live near you) in order to make a lending decision about you if your own credit report hasn’t got much information in it.
The campaign generated sixteen pieces of coverage across national and regional press, including the Daily Mail (the world’s largest online publication), the Sun and an in-depth feature on the Telegraph website.
If you want to know how your credit score matches up with others in your area, you can get access to your score completely free forever at ClearScore.com and find your town on our interactive credit map here.
