The start-up plans to open offices across Europe and the US throughout 2019.

Fintech start-up Curve have announced it has reached the milestone of 300,000 customers in 10-months.

Curve consolidates its users’ credit and debit accounts into one card, reducing their wallet clutter. The numerous accounts can then be accessed through a single smart app where the user decides which card to make the payment with. The app also includes a patent-pending feature which enables the user to change what card to charge after already completing a transaction.

More than 100,000 customers actively use the card, spending on average £1,500 each month, according to Curve.

Curve has relied on word-of-mouth for 80 per cent of its growth. To continue its development, the London-based company plans to expand through Europe in 2019, opening offices in France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain. Curve also plans to expand globally, opening offices in the US by the end of next year.

Shachar Bialick, Curve founder and CEO, said: “We're on a mission to simplify the world of money in a way that's never been done before and to ensure everyone can choose the financial services they want, when they want and have the power to change those choices whenever they want to.”
