Existing credit score building products like credit cards are generic, ineffective and come with hidden fees and debt. We offer a new way to build credit health through a simple subscription fee.
Our product has hit a nerve with our customers. We’ve 7x-ed our revenue in the last six months, and expect to 10x in 2021. With an NPS of 70+ we’ve improved credit scores to save our customers thousands of £s in interest and fees. We are one of the fastest growing B2C fintechs in the UK with highly profitable unit economics.
Our mission is to offer anyone a personalised, clear and achievable path to better financial standing. This mission is more important than ever, as the number of individuals excluded from mainstream financial services has grown 4x faster than all other segments since the 2008 crisis reaching 12m people in the UK, and is expected to grow further in the wake of C19.
