Massive congratulations to the team at Revolut and, it must be said, their investors: Balderton Capital for spotting their potential before they launched and then and backing them to the hilt. Their reward? A $500M investment led by TCV valuing Revolut at a staggering $5.5B. 

This piece by Daniel Waterhouse eloquently describes what he and the team saw in Revolut that marked them out as a good investment 5 years ago. 

From zero to $5B in 5 years. That sounds like the sort of thing we used to read about happening only in Silicon Valley.
