Equifax is a credit reporting agency based in Atlanta, USA. Founded over a century ago in 1899, the company is one of the oldest known credit agencies in the world. The company operates in 14 countries, including the UK, and has an annual revenue of over $3 billion.
As a consumer credit reporting agency, it collects information on consumers’ bill-paying and borrowing habits. This information is often requested by businesses, especially loan providers, to assess the risk of lending to an individual. The information that the company provides may even affect the terms and the interest rates offered to some individuals. They also offer some services to consumers themselves, such as services to monitor credit and prevent fraud.
The company began in Atlanta as Retail Credit Company and quickly expanded throughout America, later branching into Canada too. The business mainly focused on providing information to insurance companies. In 1975, the company changed its name to Equifax and, in the following years, began producing commercial credit reports and expanding its business worldwide. Today, they are known as one of the ‘Big Three’ credit agencies along with Experian and TransUnion, and has more than 9,000 employees around the world.
