Why
we are here

Advancing Data Science and Technology to Deliver Financial Access for All
  • Our founding team experienced first-hand how global banking was stuck with archaic credit data and scoring technologies of the 70s. They were not designed for emerging countries, underbanked consumers or non-banking businesses.

  • We knew it would take a different kind of company to rebuild Big Data scoring technology from the ground up for the Information Age. We founded TrustingSocial to help banks redefine their relationships with customers and connect to billions of unbanked consumers in the world.

What we do

We are reinventing credit scoring for the Information Age.
