XP Inc. acquires fintech Fliper

LatamListXP Inc. acquired a majority stake in Fliper for an undisclosed amount, but the founding partners remain in the business and will have independence to manage it.

The company’s platform, launched in October 2018, allows users to manage multiple investments in several financial institutions, compare the performance of portfolios, monitor the evolution of assets,and access news about the market.
