What is Lowell Labs?

    Lowell Labs is an advanced analytics centre of excellence focused on creating new insights about subprime credit consumer behaviour, financial distress, and household balance sheet dynamics. As the newest location for Lowell, our Amsterdam office reflects both the entrepreneurial spirit and freedom-to-operate of a start-up with the stability of a pan-European corporate business. Our work influences every area of Lowell’s business through a combination of partnership and inquiry, and we are deeply committed to developing talented staff and focusing our work on the most interesting problems.

    How does Lowell Labs work? 

    Lowell's business is pan-European and Lowell Labs staff, as members of the broader Decision Science department, provide direct support to colleagues in the UK, the DACH region, and the Nordics. As a result, team members have ample opportunities to travel and network, and also benefit from dedicated time to learn and think. 

    Moreover, our data asset is without rival: Lowell has a relationship with more than 1 in 5 consumers across the UK, DACH region, and Nordic countries. Each year we make significant investments in credit bureau and customised consumer data that describe demographic, account-specific, and macroeconomic factors related to credit, savings, and payment behaviour. 

    Additionally, we have partnered with some of the world's leading universities and faculty to design applied business experiments and fill the knowledge gap around household balance sheet and consumer debt dynamics.

    Elizabeth Mandiville

    "My job is all about using data, and building statistical models, to help us better understand our consumers and tailor our engagement strategies to meet their individual needs.

    We have a wide and varied consumer base, so the more we understand our individual consumers the better service we can provide.

    What I like most about my work are the difficult problems, the ones where consumer behaviour is uncertain and we need to develop new data sources and use new analytic methods. Most of my work is collaborative; I enjoy learning from others and working with other teams to integrate my insights into our business processes."
