City sources also confirmed that the idea of the funding process is not final, however, the Fintech firm’s investors estimate that the business could be valued at anywhere between $10 to $15 billion.

CEO Nik Storonsky has mentioned in the past that he does not consider taking Revolut public until it is worth at least $20bn – suggesting that a listing remains some way off.

Revolut declined comment on what it said was speculation.
