Trussle will receive backing from Propel as well, Sky News also reported.

Trussle was founded by Ishaan Malhi, a City analyst who made his own company after he grew sick of how tedious his own mortgage application was.

Speaking to Sky News, Malhi said: “Every year, millions of current and aspiring home owners are subject to the same unnecessary costs, delays, and frustration that I experienced first-hand when trying to get a mortgage.”
