ClearScore’s platform, which gives everyone free access to their credit reports and scores, has shaken up an industry previously dominated by the paid-for subscription models of three incumbents, CallCredit, Equifax and Experian. ClearScore receives a commission every time a consumer uses its platform to buy a credit product, and with more than 4.9m users, sales grew to £13.3m last year. Chief executive Justin Basini, 43, started the business in 2015 with the ex-managing director of Google UK, Dan Cobley, 50, and investment from Blenheim Chalcot, QED Investors and Lead Edge Capital. It forecasts sales will rise to £30m this year.
