8 June 2021

Berkshire Hathaway led a USD750m Series G extension for Nubank, with participation from  Sands Capital, Verde Asset, Absoluto Partners, MSA Capital, CPPIB and Sunley House at a reported USD30b valuation. Nubank raised a USD400m Series G in a round led by GIC, Whale Rock and Invesco at a reported USD25b valuation earlier this year. Nubank’s reported valuation has more than tripled since TCV led a US$400m Series F in 2019 at a US$10b valuation.

Today, Nubank announced a $750 million extension to its Series G (which rang in at $400 million this past January), bringing the round to a total of $1.15 billion and their valuation to $30 billion — $5 billion more than when we covered them in January.
