Allica Bank appoints Conrad Ford as chief product officer

Credit Assess is a white-label online solution which allows advisers to access their online credit score and digital report, while using open banking technology to deliver bank statements in minutes, enabling the adviser to analyse the consumer’s affordability and risk for lending.

Credit Assess provides the adviser with full access to credit scores and reports, providing the consumer’s credit report and banking information securely within minutes.

The appointment follows Click2Check’s recent hiring of director of sales Michael Taylor, who joined in July and is responsible for working with advisory firms and other financial services businesses in order to develop Click2Check’s relationships and to help them utilise the Credit Assess product.

Credit Assess is available to all advisory firms, distributors, CRM provider and networks, and is provided with a full training package.

David Jones, director of Click2Check, said: “There is always a significant amount of work and development with any tech-focused proposition, and as more advisory firms come on board, we felt it was important to up our resource in this area.

“This is why we’ve brought Yusuf on board to work on the software itself, but to also support our clients and respond to their needs.

“Given the times we are in, there has perhaps never been a greater need for advisers to have clear sight of their client’s finances and credit situation.

“Having this information upfront via Credit Assess allows them to work from a point of certainty, outlining the specific solutions that are available and those lenders who can deliver.

“We believe that by having access to both credit reports and Open Banking data, advisers will have up-to-date information and be able to cut down on some of those obstacles that can be placed in their way during the process, when that has not been made available to them.”
