Apply for data from Fable Data

Fable Data partners with banks across Europe to acquire anonymised real-time transaction data. They then aggregate and structure this data and build market-leading data products that provide a first read on the European economy. Fable Data owns the most comprehensive anonymised dataset of European real time banking and credit card data - that's millions of consumers and over a billion rows of data.

Part of their work happens on a pro-bono basis, and benefits institutions such as the LSE, the University of Nottingham, and the Deutsche Bundesbank. They have agreed to work on a pro-bono basis with the Stone Centre at UCL as well. Economics PhD students from the Department will soonbe able to apply to Fable Data for data at no charge.

We will update this page once applications are open.
