Creditinfo ups stake in Middle East with new Oman hub

Gary Brown, Head of Commercial Development – Creditinfo Gulf

Creditinfo Group, the provider of credit scoring solutions, has said it is opening a new regional hub in Muscat, called Creditinfo Gulf, following the establishment of a strategic partnership with the Central Bank of Oman.
Creditinfo said it will be supporting the bank’s customers across the Middle East, as well as introducing software platforms such as automated decisioning tools which allow lenders to capture data from multiple sources and build, deploy and benefit from custom decision-making parameters within seconds, rather than hours or days.
The World Bank estimates that over 1.7 billion people worldwide are unbanked, with little to no access to formal finance, said Creditinfo. It estimated that only 15% of citizens in the Middle East have access to a bank account.
The new office in Muscat, which became fully operational in February 2019, will see a permanent and multinational team of risk management and financial specialists oversee the digital transformation of financial institutions in the region, including the development of the Oman Credit Bureau and Creditinfo’s other Middle Eastern customers. The team will share knowledge and provide fintech innovation, including the deployment of psychometric analysis and digital onboarding solutions, to increase the speed and accuracy of onboarding new customers.
“It is an exciting time across the Gulf region, lenders are changing the way in which they operate and make decisions on an individual’s creditworthiness based on a varied base of traditional and non-traditional data,” commented Gary Brown, Head of Commercial Development – Creditinfo Gulf. “Creditinfo’s goal is to be at the forefront of facilitating access to finance in each of our markets, but also to help lenders reduce risk.”
“The Middle East is an interesting market for financial services and fintech businesses,” commented Stefano Stoppani, CEO Creditinfo Group. ”With such a large portion of unbanked citizens in the region, the new hub will help financial institutions, governments and central banks throughout the Gulf to build and deploy new infrastructures and services to reduce this number. This new hub will allow our team to strengthen our offerings and capabilities within this diverse and fast-growing market.”
