A number of reports are placing Monzo's new $2.5b valuation in the context of leapfrogging Revolut ($1.7b) and just behind Oaknorth ($2.8b). But what they fail to note is that the much older TransferWise via a secondary round is valued by private investors at a whopping $3.5b.

From last night, confirming another of my earlier scoops.

In other news, I actually mentioned Monzo in a dream I had last night. #WorkLifeBalance https://twitter.com/TechCrunch/status/1143293420867395585

As a journalist, I think an interviewee bringing notes and scripts is their choice (as is insisting a PR handler joins in on a written interview). However, the deal is, if you choose to do so, I'm compelled to call it out in the piece or on-air. https://twitter.com/tom_watson/status/1143081270102171648

Thanks to everyone who answered.

For a news piece I'm running tomorrow👍

The take-away: a growth fund attached to an early-stage fund can be a great antidote to the anti-portfolio (the list of successful companies a VC firm either missed, were unable or chose not to invest in).

Twitter people, remind me, what's that word VCs use to describe the portfolio of companies they *didn't* back? Is it "un-portfolio"?

More and more #fintech startups are playing the revenue trump card: lending & credit.

The question then arises: are their lending & credit products more transparent, fairer & more responsible, and therefore part of the solution, or will they simply become part of the problem? https://twitter.com/Jasmine/status/1143115956702601217
