As digital payments grow during the Covid-19 pandemic, payment companies around the world are planning to launch initial public offerings (IPOs) that could fetch billions of dollars.

Trustly in Sweden

Swedish payments company Trustly is reportedly preparing for a €9bn ($11bn) IPO listing, Reuters reported.

The buyout group Nordic Capital, which owns Trustly, has hired Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Carnegie to launch the IPO in April or May 2021.

Nordic Capital is currently in the process of hiring more banks for the listing.

The IPO could value the firm at €6-8bn, the report added citing two people while another person said that the company might reach €7-9bn in valuation.

Founded in 2008, Trustly operates in Sweden, Spain, Malta, Germany and Britain.
