TransferWise, one of Europe’s best-funded financial technology firms, is seeking to raise up to $300 million, which would value the company at around $4 billion, one of the sources said.
The latest fundraising round is being organized by investment bank Goldman Sachs Group Inc, said the sources, who asked not to be identified because the matter is confidential. A spokesman for Goldman did not immediately respond to a request for comment. TransferWise, which was formed by Estonian duo Taavet Hinrikus and Kristo Kaarmann in 2011, has over 4 million customers and transfers more than $4 billion a month, according to its website. It employs more than 1,400 people across 11 offices on four continents.
