Listen: Revolut’s US CEO on how the UK’s most valuable startup will crack America

Digital bank Revolut is preparing to make its big debut stateside, after the Covid-19 pandemic forced the firm to pause its launch strategy.

Now with $800m in fresh funding from SoftBank and Tiger Global under its belt, US chief executive Ron Oliveira told Financial News how the UK’s most valuable tech company ever plans to crack America.

The fintech firm first opened its doors in New York in March 2020, though its opening was quickly scuppered by the global pandemic and multiple lockdowns. With its offices slowly opening back up, the bank is preparing for a major marketing blitz across the country to make its mark.
