Credit Kudos, a credit scoring platform that puts the consumer at the helm of the credit profile, has joined the Financial Data and Technology Association (FDATA).

The fintech startup, headed by Freddy Kelly and Matt Schofield, uses consumer transaction data to build highly accurate and transparent credit score-cards and affordability metrics.

Freddy Kelly presented his company’s model to FDATA’s open banking conference in March, and is the first FDATA member to join under the new start-up membership category.

Commenting, Freddy said:

“We’re delighted to be joining FDATA at such a critical phase in the journey toward an open banking landscape. Open Banking APIs will enable consumers to leverage their data to achieve better financial outcomes, be it savings, investments or credit scores. FDATA are leading the charge on financial innovation, and we’re excited to be able to play an active role in new developments through our relationship with them.”
Andy Maciver, Executive Director of FDATA, said:
“In 2016, we’re looking to incorporate start-ups into our membership to join the scaling and corporate entities we already have. We’re pleased to have Freddy and Credit Kudos on board. They have an exciting platform and really impressed the audience who heard Freddy’s presentation at our recent conference. We’re moving into an important phase as we take forward the work of the Open Banking Working Group, and it’s great that Credit Kudos is now part of the journey.”
