Nikolay Storonsky, Chief Executive Officer, commented: “Revolut reaching 20 million customers and 250 million transactions a month is another milestone we’re proud of. When we started Revolut seven years ago, we wanted to give people more control over their financial well-being through the use of our technology, offering a service that addresses all their financial needs in one place. We are still a young business, but our growth over the last few years shows the increasing demand for our products all over the world.
As important as this milestone is, we are still at the start of our journey and intend to keep pushing the boundaries of financial innovation to build the world’s first global financial superapp. This is just the beginning…”

We are now more than 5,000 strong, with new and long-standing staff helping to deliver for our customers on a daily basis. Today’s announcement, as well as the company’s seventh anniversary, is one to savour and enjoy, but it is also evidence that there is still so much to achieve in this space. We remain focused on developing new and innovative products for our customers and look forward to celebrating the next milestone in the near future.”
