This chapter demonstrates how the use of personal information can expand overall access to credit and insurance. It focuses on impacts that are potentially exclusionary, to understand better the distribution of the risks and benefits of personal information use — and to consider the scope for creative solutions to new forms of exclusion. It also discusses what is known about the adverse effects data use can have on access to credit and insurance and then examines the success of policy responses.
