The UK’s longest running index of disruptive new startups, the Startups 100, has released its 2021 lineup and Universal Partners has made the list.
Run by the UK’s most established website for entrepreneurs, Startups.co.uk, the Startups 100 offers a showcase of new businesses that demonstrate innovation, solid financials, economic impact, and the ability to scale. The list has previously identified brands including Revolut, Deliveroo, HelloFresh and Bulb.
Included for a second consecutive year, Universal Partners FX have continued to help businesses manage their FX risk through an extremely difficult period. By offering a more in-depth service than what is available at banks and some other brokers, they are able to tailor their strategies to each business within their base. The result is that businesses that have faced huge hits to their bottom-line were able to navigate through the worst phases of the pandemic, ensuring that fluctuating exchange rates did not add further strain on their business. In doing so, Universal Partners achieved record-breaking growth which finalised their transition from start-up to disrupter.

Managing Editor of Startups.co.uk, Richard Parris, comments: “After a particularly difficult year for businesses we are happier than ever to celebrate UK success stories. Every year the Startups 100 shows how UK businesses are responding to the issues, concerns and trends of the time. Entrepreneurs solve problems – whether that is the home care crisis being tackled by businesses like Cera and Birdie, diversity in hiring being challenged by Multiverse or the recent pet boom being capitalised on by Vet AI – you can see UK businesses innovating to meet the challenges of the time – and being very successful whilst doing it!”
