Bruce Cane, Founder


Having spent thirty years in sales and marketing, mainly related to computer systems and databases, Bruce started working in the asset reunification marketplace in 2010. Realising that there was not an organised accessible database of financial assets he created Inheritance Data.

Since its inception in 2014, Inheritance Data has worked with the bereavement teams of all the financial institutions to establish working relationships, driven by Bruce’s vision of a totally digital platform that enables executors to be given a financial “footprint” of the deceased, in a short timeframe speeding up, and reducing stress within the probate marketplace.



Daniel Cane, Operations Director

After studying Business and law at college Daniel formed a business in 2011. Working as a sole trader, he designed a logistics package that allowed a one-man owned business to cost-effectively collect and deliver for the high end antiques market around the South of England.

Daniel joined our sister company Perane & Co in 2013 to establish the sales teams and provide logistic support, Daniel was able to quickly grow Perane and open a second office in Edinburgh. Daniel's skills enabled him to take on a sales role with Inheritance Data and became operations manager helping to establish Inheritance Data and ensure smooth running of all processes.
