Sky News has learnt that Monzo, which was founded in 2015 and now boasts 8.5m customers, is in detailed talks with a pack of blue-chip investment funds about a share sale expected to value it at more than £3.5bn.
The talks are yet to be concluded, and the identity of any new investors has yet to be determined by the company’s board, insiders said. The company is expected to finalise the details of the stake sale by the end of the year.
Its latest fundraising is likely to be viewed as the final round before Monzo unveils an initial public offering, in which it would sell shares to the public.
