The Bits Story
Faisal, Bits' Founder, moved to London from the US in 2012. Almost immediately, he encountered a big problem: without a UK credit history, he found himself unable to open even a bank account – let alone get a mobile phone contract or credit card.
It didn’t matter that he had a job, or that his US credit history was good: lenders looked at Faisal’s file and saw an unknown quantity.
For over a year, he had to pay rent from a Quality Street tin stuffed with £20 notes. Banks treated him like he didn’t exist – as far as they were concerned, he could have been anyone.
And how was he meant to build up his credit history if he couldn’t open a bank account?
This vicious cycle still affects as many as 10 million people in the UK – and Bits is on a mission to help them.
In 2019, Faisal launched the Bits app to help people similarly locked out of basic necessities because of their credit score. By spending carefully with the UK’s top retailers – think Asda, Starbucks, and Amazon – Bits customers can demonstrate their ability to manage their finances, increasing their attractiveness to lenders.
As for Faisal? Well, he got the credit score he wanted – and a mortgage, too.
