Mr Wardrop got the idea when he was reviewing financial services for a legal firm. “I saw people walking into the executor department with plastic bags full of bank books and life insurance.

“It was a shambles, and incredibly difficult for solicitors trying to process and protect those assets. To date the UK government has seized £1.6 billion from dormant bank accounts with the vast majority coming from the executory area.”

He added: “My Executor Box, which can be set up through affiliated solicitors or individually online, allows people to store their information by asset type, including bank accounts, investments and property.

“It also records mortgages and loans to provide a picture of the person’s net worth.

“I want to revolutionise the executory market and offer a safe, secure solution for all involved,” said Mr Wardrop.
