London-headquartered payments company Wise, previously known as Transferwise, reported a yearly revenue gain of 23 percent for the third quarter of fiscal year 2024 to £276.6 million. It further generated an income of £375.1 million, an increase of 40 percent.

Solid Numbers of the Payment Platform

According to the official numbers, the cross-border money transfer volume on the platform between October and December jumped 16 percent year-over-year to £30.6 billion. On a constant currency basis, this growth rate came in at 18 percent.

The account balance on the platform also jumped 28 percent to £12.9 billion. The company received 4.2 percent as gross yield on the balance in the quarter and returned 1.1 percent of the gains (amounted to £33.7 million) to the customers.

“We've sped up global USD payments by optimizing payouts with one of our banking partners and expanded our Wise Interest Asset offering in seven European markets, including France and Spain. Customers in these markets holding USD with Wise can now opt-in to earn a return on these balances too,” said Kristo Käärmann, the Co-Founder and CEO at Wise.

With the latest numbers, the company has upgraded its annual income growth guidance to 42-44 percent from the previous guidance of 33-38 percent. It is additionally expecting an EBITDA margin of at or above 20 percent.

Active Customers Grew

Previously known as Transferwise, the platform was rebranded to Wise in 2021 as its focus shifted beyond remittances. Indeed, apart from cross-border remittances, Wise offers a multi-currency account, a debit card, and even business accounts. Wise established its name by charging transparent and low remittance fees, contrary to its banking rivals.

Over the years, the platform partnered with several other financial services providers, including brokerages, easing the process of moving money.

The latest official numbers revealed that the number of active customers on the platform increased 30 percent to 7.5 million, driven mainly by increased adoption of the Wise Account and multi-feature usage. The number of active personal customers elevated 7.1 million, and active business customers saw an uplift of 23 percent to 392k.

Furthermore, the company pointed out that 46 percent of personal customers and 60 percent of business customers use multiple features on the platform, highlighting that “customers that use multiple features transact more often and have higher retention levels.”
