Revolut Receives FCA License, Announces $1 Billion Annual Run Rate

RevolutHomepage2016

London-based startup Revolut today announced it now has an e-money license from the FCA after submitting its application in January. The company will use the certification to bolster its application that allows users to exchange currencies at interbank rates and spend in different countries using a multicurrency card and mobile app.

Revolut also announced some meaty figures of recent growth in a Business Insider piece. In the past 10 months, the company surpassed $500 million processed on the Revolut card (this includes money spent over the Revolut card, the mobile app, and withdrawn from ATMs). That’s up $300 million from February, when the company announced it had processed $200 million.

Additionally, Revolut CEO Nikolay Storonsky states the company is seeing volume increases of 30% per month. The company boasts 180,000 cardholders and signs up 1,500 new customers per day.

In February, Revolut closed on $4.8 million. The company, which hopes to close a $14.5 million round, now has $7.6 million in total funding. In January, Revolut unveiled version 2.0 of its Personal Money Cloud, which it launched at FinovateEurope 2015 in London.
