This is the first UK fintech IPO of 2018

But will it be the last….

IntegraFin, the owner of the Transact software platform, has announced plans for a stock market listing. Whilst some media have reported this could be as much as £500m, no offical figures have been annouced by the firm.

The Initial Public Offering (IPO) would be the first major fintech to go public in 2018. Alfa Financial listed on the AIM market in 2017, valued at £1bn while WorldPay IPO’d in 2015 valued at £4.8bn.

Of 250 fintech firms surveyed by EY and Innovate Finance on behalf of HM Treasury last year, more than half also said they expect revenue to more than double over the next 12 months leading many to forecast a surge of stock market listings.

The firm’s Transact platform assists financial advisers with digital infrastructure was launched in 2000.

Ian Taylor, CEO of IntegraFin, says since its launch it has in recent years been supported by a growing demand for financial advice, an increasingly complex investment landscape, pension freedoms and strong growth drivers in the UK wealth management market.

“We believe that we are well-positioned to continue to achieve long-term sustainable growth, returning value to our shareholders, customers and staff alike. We are extremely positive about the future."
