Revolut Becomes UK’s Biggest Unicorn

Having managed to raise $800 million in a funding round led by Softbank’s Vision Fund and Tiger Global Management, UK-based fintech company Revolut is now valued at $33 billion, making it the biggest ‘unicorn’ in the country as well as the highest-valued fintech company.

As reported by Reuters, “Revolut has won more than 16 million customers with products including foreign exchange, stock trading and cryptocurrencies, undercutting mainstream banks’ prices.”

However, as Statista’s Martin Armstrong notes, “it has yet to translate that rapid growth into profitability, with its annual losses doubling last financial year on investment in risk controls.”

Second on the list of the UK’s most valuable unicorns, as compiled by CB Insights, is another fintech company – – which reached its $15 billion valuation after raising $450 million at the beginning of the year, again led by Tiger Global Management.
