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

Today, Cardlytics operates with a clear goal in mind: to make marketing more relevant and measurable with Purchase IntelligenceTM.

From the beginning, we have believed in the power of Purchase Intelligence to drive value to three important audiences:
