Subprime lending hits 11-year low across the automotive loan market, according to new Experian study

EXPN

New and used payments reach historic levels as interest rates continue to rise. SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- With the uptick in average credit scores for vehicle financing across the board, the percentage of subprime loan originations reached its lowest level in 11 years. "A shift in market share can be attributed to many factors, including an improvement in consumer credit behavior and vehicle affordability. Lenders need to pay close attention to these trends so they can make the right decisions and adjust risk management strategies accordingly." Some may point to vehicle affordability trends as a driving force behind consumer preferences. The average interest rate for a new vehicle loan was 5.73 percent in Q3 2018, up from 5.10 percent in Q3 2017, while the average interest rate for a used vehicle loan was 9.03 percent, up from 8.72 percent over the same time period.

London Stock Exchange lines up Experian boss as new chair

LSE EXPN

Talks between Mr Robert and the LSE board are understood to be at an advanced stage, with an announcement likely before Christmas. If he is appointed to the role, it would hand the Experian chairman the most prominent boardroom role of his career, and one of the most prestigious jobs in the City. Prior to that, he worked in a number of financial services and data businesses, with one insider saying he had been identified by the LSE as the leading candidate to replace Mr Brydon because of his experience in global companies operating in sectors affected by rapid technological change. The LSE said in November last year that Mr Brydon would not stand for re-election at its annual meeting in the spring of 2019 following a bitter public row between its board and The Children's Investment Fund Management, a prominent hedge fund which had been a big shareholder for more than a decade. Force leaders to debate on TV. Before selling TCI's shares, Sir Christopher had predicted that consolidation in the exchanges sector was inevitable, telling investors that he envisaged a takeover bid from either CME Group, which owns the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, or the New York Stock Exchange's parent, Intercontinental Exchange (ICE).

EXPN

By Alys Key, Press Association City ReporterPA Money News28 November 2018, 08:04 GMT. The UK’s competition watchdog has said Experian’s acquisition of Clearscore could pose a threat to competition, as it unveiled the provisional findings of a probe into the merger. The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA), which referred the deal for an in-depth probe in July, said it could reduce competition in the credit comparison and checking markets. “We continue to strongly believe that the acquisition of ClearScore will have a positive impact on competition, allowing Experian to help more consumers with their finances by providing greater choice and convenience to them to access personal finance products at the best prices,” the company said.

Britain may block Experian-ClearScore credit data merger

EXPN

(Reuters) - Britain's competition watchdog indicated it may block credit data company Experian's <EXPN.L> takeover of rival ClearScore and warned the deal could stifle innovation and lead to people paying more for credit cards and loans. Experian, the world's biggest credit data firm, said it was disappointed by the Competition and Markets Authority's (CMA) provisional findings. Experian, a FTSE 100 company, wants to expand in Britain with the purchase of ClearScore, which provides free access to credit reports and scores, and introduces consumers to personal financial products. For a graphic on Experian investors cheer proposed ClearScore deal, see - https://tmsnrt.rs/2PWOKqU. "That's not a final decision, and it sounds like Experian hasn't given up hope of getting the deal through in some form, but it'll be an uphill struggle, and it's difficult to imagine the CMA will move that significantly," said Nicholas Hyett, equity analyst at Hargreaves Lansdown.

Kenshoo teams up with Experian to offer third-party data for Facebook campaigns - Marketing Land

EXPN FB

After facing criticism for its handling of user data and new the regulatory provisions of GDPR, Facebook announced in March it was phasing out integrations with third-party data providers on its ad platform. “While marketers know how valuable their first-party data can be and have certainly embraced second-party data targeting from ad giants like Google and Facebook, third-party data from trusted sources such as Experian can fill in the missing pieces in marketer data sets. For example, Experian can help target in-market auto buyers, niche demographic groups at scale, and past purchase behavior with rich audience data that would be very difficult for a single source to identify,” says Kenshoo chief product officer Zvika Goldstein. The partnership will apply to all of Experian’s ConsumerView data sets — a list that includes 1,159 audience segments. It cited several studies such as one from Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, the American Marketing Association (AMA) and Deloitte in August that found 91 percent of marketers have increased or kept their third-party data usage the same over the last two years.

S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices Show Composite Default Rate Remains Stable In October 2018

EXPN SPGI

This has been the primary contributing factor to the concurrent decrease in the composite default rate. "Continued good economic results are supporting rising consumer spending without any siginificant increase on consumer credit defaults," says David M. Blitzer, Managing Director and Chairman of the Index Committee at S&P Dow Jones Indices. On a monthly basis, auto loans saw a small rise while the bank card defaults dropped and mortgages were unchanged. While two of the five cities reported here saw an increase in October compared to September, four out of five cities have default rates lower than October 2017. Jointly developed by S&P Dow Jones Indices LLC and Experian, the S&P/Experian Consumer Credit Default Indices are published on the third Tuesday of each month at 9:00 am ET.
