This is the seventh edition of FT 1000: Europe’s Fastest Growing Companies – a list of the fastest growing companies in Europe. iBanFirst, the reference for new generation international payments, ranks for the fourth consecutive year on the list, rising from 815th to 378th place.
This Financial Times award recognizes iBanFirst's long-standing robustness, having achieved over 70% growth every year for the past 4 years. This growth is made possible thanks to iBanFirst's rising appeal to thousands of businesses (iBanFirst is conducting more than €1.5 billion transactions each month) while benefiting from a level of customer loyalty and recommendation (Net Promoting Score of 63) that is among the highest in its category (Bain 2022 study).
Regulated as a payment institution under the PSD2 directive, iBanFirst has built an ecosystem of partnerships with all the major financial institutions in an effort to reinvent a payment system that is both more competitive, robust and resilient. For the clients, iBanFirst offers a unique experience that combines the power of its platform with the support of top FX experts.
The company, which is backed by the French public investment bank (Bpifrance) as well as investment funds (Elaia, Xavier Niel) and the global investment firm Marlin Equity Partners, has made ongoing investments in recent months to improve customer onboarding, compliance, and offer a cutting-edge interface experience.
Commenting on the news, Pierre-Antoine Dusoulier, CEO and founder of iBanFirst, said: “This continued presence on the FT 1,000 list for the fourth-year running is extremely rare. It’s proof of our sustained growth and of the confidence of our customers in Europe. It also reflects iBanFirst's relevant choice to focus our expertise on international payments while offering a maximum level of security for our clients' funds thanks to account segregation.”
