The proposition

A software and data-as-a-service platform that provides an automated, intelligent and curated data marketplace (using consent- based blockchain architecture) to aid faster and accurate credit decision-making at scale. The company’s platform uses proprietary credit and other risk assessment models to provide actionable intelligence for dynamic credit management.

Key features

  • Derives insights from distributed and unstructured data sources, using proven computational techniques like Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing and visualisation to help businesses make fast and smart decisions 
  • Automates loan portfolio monitoring with a predictive engine and alerts 
  • Combines public data with consent data to create a 360 degree picture.


  • Reduction in the overall lead time for the Know Your Customer (KYC) process 
  • Smoother KYC process as only relevant inputs are required from the customer 
  • Improved customer experience with reduced onboarding time and minimal documentation requested by the bank 
  • Real-time monitoring predicts delinquency with a lead time of a year
  • Frees up resource time for front office staff enabling them to focus on their core work.

The Barclays partnership

Crediwatch completed a proof-of-concept (PoC) as part of the Barclays Accelerator programme and created a customised KYC offering for the Barclays Corporate Banking business.

After a six month pilot engagement and additional customisations, Crediwatch has been onboarded as a vendor by Barclays.
