In 2014 Wise got naked, moved £1 billion transparently and got Sir Richard Branson on board. We were honoured with awards, commended in parliament and held a funeral for hidden charges. In January we had 40 employees, in December we hit 240.

Wise wins the Financial Times Boldness in Business Award.
In April Wise had transferred its first £1 billion. Transparently and fairly.
Wise founders Taavet & Kristo:
"Today, we’re so proud of what we’ve achieved and it’s amazing to say that we’ve transferred £1bn. There’s no way we could have done any of this without all your trust and feedback. From Wise being just the two of us and a computer to today’s crack-team of 76 brilliant staff sending money across 176 currency routes, we’ve always felt quite humbled by the support we’ve received."
Sir Richard Branson joins our mission to stamp out hidden charges by joining a $25m investment.

September marked a new look for Wise, the birth of the Fast Flag.
A flag for everyone who’s already said bye bye to bank fees. And all the people who one day will too.
September also saw the unveiling of the first UK Wise TV ad.

In November Stop Hidden Fees was launched. Our aim? To change the law and end decades of hidden bank fees.
Days later 18,000 had signed the petition. UK MPs Chi Onwurah and Stephen Lloyd had given the petition their backing in Westminster. Soon after, Reuters reported that HSBC will be refunding some customers after charging them excessive foreign currency fees.
