Wise’s Stock Dips Following CFO’s Resignation and CEO’s Upcoming Absence.

Fintech firm Wise stock falls after CFO quits, CEO to go on leave

Fintech firm Wise stock falls after CFO quits, CEO to go on leave

Wise, the British fintech firm, saw a 4% fall in its shares as it announced on Monday that its CFO Matt Briers is leaving the company in March 2024. Additionally, CEO Kristo Kaarmann will take paternity leave from September this year. The news of Briers’ departure came as a surprise, given his significant contribution in taking Wise from a scrappy money transfer start-up to a publicly-listed financial technology giant. The firm went public last year in London’s first-ever direct listing – an IPO alternative where companies offer stock directly to the public without using financial intermediaries or creating new shares.

Briers’ departure follows the recent resignation of Mikko Salovaara, the CFO of British digital banking startup Revolut, who left his post in May after only two months. Wise has not announced Briers’ successor.
