Wise’s Results & Performance in the First Quarter of FY24

Cross-border payments company reported 16% volume growth to £28.2 billion and 29% revenue growth to £240 million. The company’s revenue soared 66% to £311 million due to more engaged clients and interest income.

Q1 FY24 gross interest income return was 3.4%, up from 2.8% in Q4 FY23, and wise account balances reached £11.5 billion. Thus, Wise account holders received 0.9%, up from 0.6% in the previous quarter.

“This quarter we continued expanding our infrastructure and bringing out the account features that our clients need to live, work, or manage their enterprises across borders,” said Wise CEO and Co-Founder Kristo Kaarmann. He said Wise raised payments to Brazil, Australia, and other Asian countries. 57% of Wise payments come in 20 seconds.

Quarterly data support the fiscal year ending March 31, 2023 annual report. According to preliminary numbers released a month ago, sales increased by 51%, profit increased by 234%, and consumers increased by 34%.

Despite these advances, Wise’s FY24 revenue growth forecast is 28–33%. Increased interest income will offset customer advantages, keeping the adjusted EBITDA margin high.

Kaarmann noted that the company’s ‘Interest’ feature was recently launched in Germany, Sweden, and Norway and expanded to 11 more countries. European clients are also getting “Cashback” on their accounts.

As our customer proposition improves, more people and enterprises are choosing Wise, which will support our long-term prosperity. The CEO reported 6.7 million active consumers this quarter, up 33% YoY, contributing to a 66% revenue increase.

Wise is a payment processor that works with numerous businesses in the FX/CFD sector. According to Finance Magnates, the Interactive Brokers platform has made the ‘Pay with Wise’ feature available since April.

In addition, Wise recently disclosed that its Chief Financial Officer of the last eight years, Matthew Briers, has opted to step down from his job. Briers is taking this action because he has put his health and a full recovery from an accident he had last year as a top priority.
