TransUnion TRU has collaborated with UMortgage and FinLocker with a view to increase the accessibility of financial literacy and personal financial management. While UMortgage is a mortgage company, FinLocker is a provider of the secure financial fitness app, USafe

The partnership enables consumers to use the USafe app powered by FinLocker to track their credit health through TransUnion. The app provides tools for managing finances, setting savings goals, estimating cash flow and budgeting. It offers educational resources on topics such as ways to manage credit and credit cards, prepare for the mortgage process, and pay for college.

Joe Mellman, senior vice president of Mortgage at TransUnion, said, "When consumers have a better understanding of their individual mortgage readiness and the various financing options available, there's a far greater chance they will successfully complete the home buying process."

TransUnion’s gigantic treasure trove of data is its most distinguishing asset and also perhaps the biggest barrier to entry for competitors. Acquiring or building such data involves huge costs, making it extremely difficult for a new company to compete with TransUnion in this regard. This fortifies TransUnion's ability to sustain its competitive advantage and protect its market share.

TransUnion’s shares have gained 18.1% over the past year, against 10.5% decline of the industry it belongs to.
