Picture not described

Revolut is a fintech company which provides a debit card and a Swiss Army knife of an app, packed full of features including (hold your breath): a current account, peer-to-peer payments, currency exchange, multi-currency cards, day-by-day in-app insurance purchases and the option to buy cryptocurrency.

The company has been in the news for its aggressive expansion into dozens of countries, monster valuation and fundraising rounds, its ongoing war with the likes of Monzo and Starling Bank in the UK, and its apparently cut-throat working environment – Revolut’s company slogan is “Get shit done.”
