Metro Bank PLC
FINANCE - united Kingdom

By the end of December 2015 40 branches had been opened across London and the South-West of England, deposits had risen to £5.2bn, lending to £3.5bn and customer accounts grew to c.655,000.
Through our relationship with the founders of Metro, ACP secured the opportunity to invest into the second private fund raising round in January of 2014. In March 2016, six years after the opening of its first store, Metro listed on the London Stock Exchange with a valuation of £1.6bn. Following the IPO, ACP exited Metro for an IRR far exceeding the internal hurdle of 20%.
