Bullish Outlook

With the latest figures, Wise changed its annual outlook with more bullish figures. The company now expects an annual income growth of between 33 and 38 percent, compared to the previous estimation of 28 to 33 percent. It is further expecting an income growth at over 20 percent CAGR in the medium term and has continued to target an adjusted EBITDA margin at or above 20 percent.
