First launched in 2015 with the aim to ‘unlock the power of a borderless economy’, Revolut is the first and only global financial super app. It offers a variety of banking services including bank accounts, debit cards, currency and cryptocurrency exchange, stock trading, and peer-to-peer payments. 

Founded and headquartered in the UK – a hub of innovation for companies that want to scale globally – Revolut has now expanded into 39 countries and has over 6,000 employees from over 100 nationalities. It also has more than 27 million retail customers worldwide and processes over 330 million transactions every month.

UK regulation enabled Revolut to drive innovation through initiatives such as Open Banking and Instant Payments. The company also credits the importance of the UK Financial Conduct Authority’s Regulatory Sandbox, which allows firms to test innovative propositions in the market with real consumers and generate practical evidence from live testing.
