Eight-year old peer-to-peer lending platform Funding Circle have officially confirmed an IPO that is expected to value to company at £2 billion. Its current valuation, of more than a $1 billion, based on the company’s most recent private funding round a year ago, rubberstamped the fintech’s ‘unicorn’ status. However, the IPO, which hopes to raise around £300 million, would more than double that. The IPO will involve the listing of new shares rather than see current investors, which include some of the biggest names in technology-focused venture capital, divest their holdings.

Elon Musk Wants To Take Tesla Private But What Would it Mean for Private Shareholders?

Stocks and Shares

Tesla is one of those companies that investors either love – huge perceived potential – or simply don’t get – it burns through a lot of cash and has never turned a profit.
