About Us

Where we have come from and where we wish to go

Our Story

We’re a London based technology company, founded in 2012. During our development we made security our #1 priority, whilst continuing to make the site as user friendly as it can be.

We have developed a range of services that allow our clients to keep their lives organised – and look after their loved ones if something happens.

We work with many high profile partners, including some of the biggest and most innovative charities in the world.

We have the most comprehensive Digital Vault available, with a unique family facing product. Our mission is to become known as the World’s #1 Digital Executor – so please leave a legacy to the causes you are passionate about. 

Our People

  • Simon Stewart
    Simon Stewart Founder & CEO

    The genesis of Lexikin came from personal experience. A few years ago we lost our grandmother’s life story coming back on a plane from Australia – it was something we really wanted to pass on to our children. I wanted to create a secure platform that I could record all my important documents and information, to make sure they got passed on correctly, should something happen to me.

     

    My vision is for Lexikin is to be the world’s leading Digital Executor – we’ve got a fantastic in-house team partnering some of the world’s leading experts in private client services, including law, insurance and wealth management.

    Lexikin is an open platform – meaning you can use any lawyer you like, and record any data you desire. We have partnered with some amazing charities and have a target of £1bn in legacy giving – it’s not that big an ask if everyone left £1000, especially when you consider how much time and money will be saved using Lexikin.

Advisory Board

Honor

9, schoolgirl

I don’t use Lexikin, I think I’m too young, but I’ve asked Mum and Dad to make sure they don’t lose all the photos of me and my cousins so I can see them when I’m older.

Thea

19, university student

I don’t think I’ve got many assets, but I’ve started to store some memories from my holidays, and have kept a copy of my passport on Lexikin for when I’m travelling, in case I lose it – all I need to remember is my password and I can get it off any device.

Ruari

23, tech entrepreneur

I keep my cryptocurrency private keys on Lexikin, but use the additional Google 2 factor authentication provided to make sure they’re secure. This means my family can access all of my various currencies if I’m not here to tell them how to get them.

Adam

35, business owner

Having only recently got on the property ladder and having our first baby, my priorities are definitely changing towards making sure my wife and little girl are going to be able to access everything I own if anything happens. It’s massively intimidating thinking about how to get started – but Lexikin makes is simple to just fill out my profile and save.

Julie

39, business manager

Having only recently got on the property ladder and having our first baby, my priorities are definitely changing towards making sure my wife and little girl are going to be able to access everything I own if anything happens. It’s massively intimidating thinking about how to get started – but Lexikin makes is simple to just fill out my profile and save.

Holly

45, artist

I was worried about losing some of my pictures in a house fire, or house move, so I took photos of my art, added them to an inventory in Lexikin’s personal property recorder, and used the quotation system to insure all of them – simples!

Lucy

49, beachwear founder

I lost my copy of my grandmother’s life story – it’s now stored in Lexikin so it can be stored safely and passed down to my kids safely.

Steve

50, author

I use Lexikin to keep all my finances in one place, in case I didn’t come back from one of my Himalayan climbs, so my kids wouldn’t be left with additional heartache.

Gai

60, yoga teacher

My legacies – I have made gifts to a few charities I’m passionate about via Lexikin, knowing that every penny will go to the end cause, with no fees/commissions taken by Lexikin or any third parties.

Malcolm

78, retired industrialist

I’ve got an inventory of memorabilia that I want left to various charities, museums and family – rather than paying a lawyer every time I have a new instruction, I simply update my Lexikin account with a reference to my Memorandum of Wishes, so it’s all legally binding and amazingly simple.

Our Charity Mission

If we can help to get people over widespread apathy surrounding planning for their Next of Kin (the majority of people don’t even have a Will), we hope to convert the substantial Probate cost savings of using Lexikin into charitable gifts:

100,000 members will save about £100m in probate fees using Lexikin (our site saves time & money by having a personal archive – meaning lawyers don’t have to charge for wasting days searching for information of the deceased).

We’d like members to convert some of those savings into charitable gifts by encouraging users to pledge money to their favourite charities…an average £1000 gift per user would equal £100m to charities
