Launched in London in 2011 by two Estonian entrepreneurs, Kristo Käärmann and Taavet Hinrikus, Wise goes public via a direct listing. Previously known as Transferwise, the UK fintech specialised in cross-border money transfers has about 6 million customers worldwide. Over the past three years, its revenues have increased more than 50%, totalling GBP 421 million for the company’s 2020-2021 financial year. Valued at GBP 3.5 billion in 2020, Wise could reach GBP 4.5 billion to GBP5 billion today, making it potentially one of the biggest listings in 2021. An DPO that will hardly go unnoticed.
