Emirates NBD’s digital sub-brand Liv is partnering with the Al Etihad Credit Bureau (AECB) to offer customers instant access to their credit score.

Following the Liv AECB agreement, the bank’s customers simply have to click on the CreditCheck feature on their Liv. app to access their AECB Credit Score.

Additionally, they can also see their debt burden including ratio monthly loan and card repayments as a percentage of their salary.

Emirates NBD said that the customers can also access tips on how to maintain a healthy credit score by ensuring regular repayments, borrowing wisely, and following other financial practices.

Liv: customer numbers exceed 100,000

Emirates NBD group head of retail banking and wealth management Suvo Sarkar said: “With over a 100,000 customers now, Liv., is fast becoming the bank of choice for young customers in the UAE.

“Liv., is a key pillar of our growth strategy and we will continue to enhance the platform through new services and strategic partnerships that help our millennial customers get the most out of their money and their daily life.”

Liv., head Jayash Patel said: “Offering easy access to your credit score via Liv. builds on our unique proposition as a mobile-only financial ‘buddy’ for young customers.

“As credit scoring gains relevance in the UAE, we want to educate and guide customers to help them better manage their finances today for a healthier financial future.”

The AECB Credit Score is the first credit scoring system for UAE’s retail banking customers. It is a three-digit number, ranging from 300 to 900 with a lower score indicating a higher risk and likelihood of missing debt payments.

Emirates NBD rolled out its digital bank Liv. in February last year aimed to attract millennial customers.
