LONDON – Tuesday 2nd March, 2021: Divido, the leading whitelabel platform for retail finance, has, today, been propelled into the top 100 fastest growing companies across Europe, and top-10 fastest growing fintechs.


The rapidly-rising retail finance star made the number 83 spot of the Financial Times’ distinguished ranking: the FT 1000, having reported 1441.7 per cent compound annual growth.


The pan-sector FT 1000 list shines a spotlight on European businesses that have shown the highest absolute growth, as independently verified by Financial Times partner Statista.


Technology accounted for around a third of the top 100 businesses on the list, with fintech representing nearly ten per cent, as London remains the city with the most high-growth businesses.


Divido CEO and founder, Christer Holloman said: ‘As we transform retail finance, we have licensed our platform to some of the world’s leading lenders and retailers; disrupting the disruptors to put them ahead in the race for this $1.8 trillion global opportunity.


‘The forthcoming closure of our Series B funding round will ensure this stellar trajectory continues.’

All companies on the list underwent the rigorous selection process set out by the Financial Times and partner firm Statista, adhering to prerequisite fiscal criteria and independent verification of figures.
