(Bloomberg) – Robinhood Markets Inc. is close to securing at least $200 million in fresh funding, according a person familiar with the matter.
The round is said to value the company at between $7 billion and $8 billion, although the details could change.
The cash infusion is coming from existing investors, said people familiar with the deal, all of whom asked not to be identified because the details are private.
The funding talks are ongoing, but the company’s valuation could climb to as much as $10 billion in a subsequent round, these people said, adding that the numbers are subject to change until the deal is closed.
The Menlo Park, California-based startup, which offers free app-based trading, last raised money in mid-2018 at a valuation of $5.6 billion.
The tech website the Information earlier reported some details of the deal.
