Layering data

GBG Affordability Solution has three components. Each offers unique affordability insights and becomes more powerful when layered together.

  1. UK Geo-affordability: Understand high-level affordability at a postcode level based on public derogatory data and lifestyle/vulnerability variables.
  2. UK Individual Affordability Indicators: Understand affordability at an individual level based on affordability indicators using credit bureau data to assess stability and cash flow.
  3. UK Income Verification: Confirm a player’s income is accurately reported and link to affordability on sufficiency (annual income), consistency (monthly amount) and relevance (types of income accounts).

Smarter onboarding and safeguarding

Identities and regulations adapt and evolve quickly. Our data and document verification technology helps you understand player identities to ensure you prevent money laundering, protect vulnerable players and build trust.

Our checks are fully configurable and enable you to implement the appropriate level of checks for your business. Carrying out multiple identity checks is critical to staying complaint, taking responsible steps to protect players and giving the best customer experience.

GBG Affordability Solution does the hard work for you. We cross-reference checks to take the complexity out of your digital onboarding process, and our granular audit trail provides you and regulators with the detail you need to be confident in your decisions, whatever your approach to risk.
