Purchase Intelligence: it’s changing the game

In 2008, Scott Grimes and Lynne Laube were bankers who understood the power of purchase data – if only it could be harnessed.

With insight into the regulations that financial institutions face, they designed a bank and privacy-friendly solution that would also serve as the foundation for marketing technology and analytics. In doing so, they linked two major industries: banking and marketing. And Cardlytics was born.
