Chief executive Justin Basini, 45, co-founded ClearScore alongside former Google UK managing director, Dan Cobley, 52, to demystify the world of consumer finance and give people free access to their credit scores and reports. Its web and app-based platform offers personalised loans, mortgages and credit cards and the company receives a commission every time someone uses it to buy a credit product. With offices in India and South Africa and more than 10m users worldwide, sales hit £42.7m last year. Experian, the data firm, had agreed to buy ClearScore for £275m, but the deal fell through in March following concern from the UK’s competition watchdog.
