We are launching a new FinTech company in the mortgage space created as a joint venture between Blenheim Chalcot (BC), the UK's leading venture builder and a FTSE250 financial services business.

Founded in 1998, Blenheim Chalcot specialises in building digital businesses that transform industries. Its portfolio of companies has sales of over GBP300m, more than 3,000 employees, and a successful track record of building over 40 companies across financial services, IT services and outsourcing, education, software, sport and media.

Blenheim Chalcot has pioneered fintech innovation in personal finance, consumer and B2B lending and payments with businesses such as Clearscore, Salary Finance, Liberis and Modulr and is now turning its attention to mortgages, building a business that will transform the industry for the better.

We believe that the combination of Blenheim Chalcot's venture building expertise, the deep sector knowledge and market access of a FTSE 250 financial services business and the significant funding we have raised will allow us to scale rapidly and have a big impact on an exciting industry.

Our growing team is led by Dan Cobley, former MD of Google UK and brings together world class designers, developers, data scientists, financial services experts and business builders.
