Uswitch owner buys digital mortgage broker Mojo

Founded just three years ago, RVU is the product of US growth investor Red Ventures. Syed came from Red Ventures to build RVU’s European business.

Rather than describing itself as “a holding company”, the firm acts as an operator. “We’re really good at performance marketing and being an expert in the content."

The third component is tooling the customer - i.e. giving users what they need to buy insurance, or get a mortgage - which is where Mojo comes in. 

In “five years’ time”, RVU expects to become “the biggest player in the mortgage market”. It currently employs around 1000 people across five countries - including the UK, France, Spain, Mexico and India.
