3 new clients for Scottish Fintech Exizent

Exizent is developing rapidly following the announcement that Countrywide Tax and Trust Corporation, Thursfields Solicitors and Thorntons are all digitising their probate with Exizent’s new platform.

After raising £3.6 million last year, the company continues on its mission to transform the way the legal and financial services industry deals with bereavement.

Nick Cousins, founder, and CEO of Exizent says

“We know from our own research that most law firms are frustrated with the amount of time it takes to process probate cases and wish the process could be more efficient, and in an era of digitised services, with more transparent and open access to information, there is no reason it shouldn’t be. Our platform brings together all the information and data needed to apply for probate in one place, making it quicker and easier for professionals to manage and less stressful for those who have lost a loved one.”


Ian Bond, Head of Wills & Estates at Thursfields, says:

Due to the numerous parties implicated and the time required to manually gather all relevant information, probate can be very emotional and stressful for those involved. Exizent is the first piece of technology to connect data, services and the network of people involved when someone passes away, and therefore has the ability to completely transform the way professional services manage and executors experience probate.”


Murray Etherington, Head of Private Client at Thorntons, says:

“It’s vitally important for those dealing with estate administration that they do everything in their power to alleviate as much distress as possible for both families and executors. Every client requirement needs to be dealt with individually, but having an effective and efficient process in place helps enormously and this is where Exizent has the power to be a real game-changer.”


Clive Ponder founder and Director at Countrywide Tax and Trust Corporation, says:

The loss of a loved one can be made all the more stressful by having to tend to complex and time-consuming documentation and admin work. This has never been clearer than in 2020, a year marked by extraordinary grief. Using the Exizent platform will enable our Specialist Probate Team to better support the bereaved, by eliminating uncertainty and ensuring a seamless and integrated experience for all involved.”
