Wise to go public on London stock market float

Friday 18 June 2021 10:55 CET | News

Wise has confirmed plans to go public in what will be the first direct listing of a tech firm in London.

The listing is expected to be finalised on 5 July with the company aiming for a freefloat of at least 25%. Wise will employ a dual class share structure for the float, wanting to bring customers and ‘other like-minded investors’ into its shareholder base.

The float will come as a boost to London’s IPO scene as the capital looks to boost its reputation as a destination for tech companies. Wise’s float will also come at a volatile time for IPOs more widely, with several stock market listings cancelled in recent weeks.

Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Barclays are lead advisers on the listing.
