IXI Network

Powerful. Unique. Exclusive.

That’s the IXI Network, the source of our household economic insights.

The IXI Network is the only source for solutions based on directly-measured wealth. Through this exclusive network of leading financial institutions, Equifax directly measures approximately $15 trillion in anonymous U.S. consumer assets and investments, representing more than 47 percent of all U.S. consumer invested assets.

While most solutions offer financial insights on U.S. consumers that rely primarily on survey- or census-based data, Equifax provides more reliable and actionable financial and economic insight based on direct-measured, anonymous asset data, overcoming some of the accuracy, reliability, coverage and granularity limitations of survey-based data.

“We chose Equifax’s [IXI] measures because they were the only source that could provide us information on both the likely financial capacity and demographics of interested consumers. Other providers offered only demographics or survey-based information, but the Equifax foundation of measured assets and credit data plus their ability to provide insight on household demographics, behaviors, and lifestyles was a real differentiator.”
