Experian, an SJE Group investment, has acquired Sentinel Peru; one of the leading credit bureau and information services businesses in Peru.
Experian has operated a credit bureau in Peru since 2011 and the acquisition will bring together the best of both organisations to extend services to both businesses and consumers.
Sentinel Peru has also operated in the market since 2011, helping businesses with credit origination, portfolio management and collections activities, and helping consumers to better control and plan their financial commitments.
Sentinel Peru is highly complementary to Experian’s operations in Peru. The company has a strong presence in the small and medium enterprise segment, in business credit and has established relationships with 1.4 million consumer members offering credit reports and scores. This compares to Experian’s strengths in the financial and telecommunications sector and nascent offers for consumers.
The SJE Group congratulates both Experian and Sentinel for this business arrangement.
