Maximise your Avios, air miles and hotel points

Curve Card raises $55m of new funding

Curve Card holders will be interested to hear that Curve has just completed a $55m funding round.

This is a substantial step-up on the $10m raised in the previous round and shows that, despite the chaos caused by their very public split with American Express, there are still plenty of people in the fintech world who have faith in the company.

To some extent, with Revolut and Monzo now valued at over $2bn each, Curve may have offered a way for investors who missed out on those two when they were ‘cheap’ to get into the sector.

The business is now valued at $250m.  I should probably have negotiated a deal to take some shares when we starting covering them 🙂
