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.

The challenger bank managed to raise $500 million in a funding round at a valuation of $5.5 billion during the last year and has attracted 15 million customers in total.

After a year of Revolut’s US launch, the digital bank has also applied for a US banking license.
