This year, the award categories include Open Banking for Good, Best Digital Identity Solution, #PowerOfTheNetwork Award and Best Open Finance Innovation. 

CRIF specialises in credit bureau services, business information systems, Open Banking and digital solutions. 

Sara Costantini, managing director of CRIF, said: “It’s a great pleasure for CRIF to become a key partner of the Open Banking Expo Awards and to be exposed to the hearth of fintech.  

With over 20 years of experience in the UK financial sector, CRIF has massively invested in Open Banking technologies and has been operating in the UK through Credit Passport, a disruptive Open Banking credit scoring platform used by more than 20,000 SMEs.”  

She added: “With the recent acquisitions of Inventia and Strands, leading providers of digital onboarding and PBFM solutions, CRIF has further enriched its digital proposition and is committed to continue its journey as a key player in the fintech landscape of the 31 countries where it operates as an AISP.
