Sources had previously said that the company, which counts Bank of America and Mercedes-Benz as customers and Old Mutual and Henderson as investors, was aiming for a valuation of at least 800 million pounds.
London-based Alfa, which made adjusted earnings before interest and tax of 32.8 million pounds in 2016, has said it hopes the listing will help it win market share by attracting new customers looking to replace legacy or in-house systems that have failed to keep up with evolving regulations. ■
