World First is the highest placed financial services business in the list after another year of considerable international growth across Europe, Asia, North America and Australia. The business employs 400 people globally in London, Sydney, Austin, Singapore and Hong Kong with licenses to serve clients in over 45 countries.
World First also recently launched a new service in Japan providing access to the Japanese market for online sellers around the world.
A typical international track company has total sales of £25m-200m, average two-year international sales growth of 15%-340% p.a. and has between 10-1,000 members of staff.
Other leading businesses on the list this year include Pret A Manger, Brewdog, Neal’s Yard Remedies and Skyscanner. Former successful entrants include Markit and Specsavers.
Commenting Jonathan Quin, CEO of World First said:
“I am delighted by the progress we have made in moving up the list and into the top ten for the first time. It is excellent recognition of the hard work our employees have put in over the past year as we continue on our international growth trajectory. Our recent launch in Japan was further proof of our desire to be a truly global company and we are set to open our first office in the Netherlands later this summer. It is also an honour to be in the esteemed company of other British success stories that are going global in this year’s Track 200 list.”
