London based fintech Wise, about all this and more.

Wise is one of Europe’s most valuable unicorns, worth around $5 billion dollars as at July 2020. Formerly known as TransferWise, the company started with 2 people swapping money to pay mortgages and moved on to helping move billions of dollars across the world. 10 years since starting, the company has changed its name to signal to the world its ambitions to be more than just a cross-border payments solution.
