UK FinTech announces European expansion plans


A UK FinTech has announced plans to expand to six new European offices.

London-based Curve has half a million active users and 30 per cent month-on-month growth since its launch in 2018.

It is now looking to open in Italy, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal and Poland.

Over half a billion has gone through the platform to-date, and the company has now appointed Alaister Mortlock as its head of talent, who previously held roles at LinkedIn and Centrica.

Mortlock will manage the talent acquisition for Curve, and is currently hiring six country managers for the expansion.

He and his team will begin a Europe-wide recruitment drive to attract talent, with the intention to scale up Curve’s hiring globally throughout the next two years.

“We are extremely excited to be fulfilling our goal to export our brand internationally and to create a new generation of users that have greater financial control over their lives,” says Curve CEO and founder, Shachar Bialick.

“Maintaining a positive work environment will be instrumental in helping us to export our brand to a wider customer base, as we invest in a strong and committed team that can deliver the services and support that users expect from us.

“With the appointment of Alaister Mortlock, Curve will gain the useful expertise it needs to continue scaling at a rapid pace but ensuring that we maintain and grow our culture and values with every hire across the globe.
