Palo Alto, CA July 30, 2019: www.Trust.Science.com USA Inc., a leading provider of AI-powered Underwriting support known as Credit Bureau 2.0™, is thrilled to announce an equity investment by Donald Guloien, the previous President and CEO of Manulife Financial (parent of John Hancock in the USA), one of the largest insurance and asset management companies in the world.
During his 36 years at the company, Mr. Guloien participated in the consistent growth of Manulife and John Hancock across the United States, Canada, and Asia, reaching over $1 Trillion of assets under administration and a $50 Billion market cap. Manulife was not only financially successful under Mr. Guloien’s leadership–soundly beating benchmark indices–but it was also a multiple award-winner such as #1 Trusted Brand and Most Admired Corporate Culture. Personally, Mr. Guloien’s own leadership did not go unnoticed, being voted as one of the Highest Rated CEOs by Glassdoor.com and awarded the Queen Elizabeth II, Diamond Jubilee Medal.
Since retiring, Mr. Guloien has begun “investing in early-stage companies with truly exceptional ideas…” through Guloien Capital. Mr. Guloien goes on to say, “Trust Science addresses a fundamental issue that companies deal with all the time: how to assess the reliability and creditworthiness of individual customers and counter-parties. This issue is even more daunting when dealing internationally, where conventional scoring may be inconsistent, unreliable or completely unavailable. This rapidly-growing service seeks to level the playing field for all the world’s citizens to be fairly considered for commercial transactions.”
Trust Science CEO, Evan Chrapko, comments “It is truly a privilege to have someone of Mr. Guloien’s caliber & discipline help with our explosive growth. Donald’s previous experience, advice, and contacts will be invaluable as we expand the reach of Credit Bureau 2.0™ around the world and into other verticals. He has already opened doors, at the highest levels, that were previously impenetrable.”
