ClearScore expands to New Zealand
After launching in Australia in 2020, the fintech is hopping across to New Zealand to help users improve their financial well-being.
ClearScore group is taking its credit score reporting to New Zealand.
Founded by CEO Justin Basini, Nigel Morris and Dan Cobley in the UK in 2015, the company has now amassed more than 19 million users and expanded internationally.
It first went to South Africa in 2017, then Australia in 2020 and Canada last year.
Having partnered with Australasian lending credit bureau illion earlier this year, ClearScore is now extending this to New Zealanders.
“By ensuring that people understand their credit data, we can help them achieve their financial goals. ClearScore has been expanding rapidly in Australia, and now we are set to see similar growth in New Zealand built on the partnership that we have established with illion,” ClearScore Group chief international officer Stephen Smyth said.
“We are delighted to welcome illion’s Credit Simple users to ClearScore and look forward to providing them with important data to help them both manage their finances and save money.”
The partnership with illion allows users to access enhanced credit data that adds to what ClearScore was offering through Experian.
illion’s ‘Credit Simple’ users are now migrating to ClearScore to access their credit scores and reports through the fintech’s app.
