Digital bank becomes the UK’s most valuable fintech. The fundraise was led by SoftBank’s Vision Fund 2 and Tiger Global Management.
Balderton first led a $2.3m late seed/early A round in Revolut in 2015. Our partner Tim led the charge on this investment and brought in Daniel Waterhouse, another of our partners, and they have worked together with Nik and the team over the last 6 years. Last year Daniel wrote about our journey with the team in his blog: "Revolut at Seed – a revolution in the making".
Revolut now has over 16 million customers and sees over 150 million transactions per month. The company plans to continue expanding its range of services, including exploring newer areas like insurance and a deeper dive into investing and trading. Revolut will also be doing more to build out its user bases in geographies such as the U.S. and India.
