About Us

Our purpose is to support Irish enterprises secure the credit they need to succeed in business.

Background

Credit Review was first established in 2010 by the Minister for Finance to ensure the flow of credit to viable Irish businesses.

We were set up to provide a simple and effective credit review and appeals process for business owners who had been refused credit from participating banks. Participating banks include; AIB, BOI, PTSB and Ulster Bank.

Our People

We are credit experts. We know and understand the banking sector and how it works. We also understand what it takes to run a successful business.

Our team includes a panel of expert professionals with front-line SME and farming enterprise finance experience. Our keen commercial awareness means we understand the challenges and opportunities for Irish enterprise. We are here to support your business success.

Although many of us have former banking experience, we are independent of the banking sector. We work closely with participating banks to achieve successful outcomes for the business owners we represent.

Heading up our team is John Trethowan. As a former bank director and past-president of the Institute of Banking in Ireland he brings a wealth of knowledge and practical experience to the Credit Review team.
