Revolut introduces an Australian business account and seeks a banking license


Share post:

CEO Nik Storonsky stated earlier this month that “extra cautious” regulators who have been alarmed by recent events at institutions like Silicon Valley Bank and Credit Suisse are holding up the fintech’s two-year effort to obtain the UK license.

According to the FT, which relied on people with knowledge of the approval procedure, progress on the application has recently slowed down or almost stopped.
