The Everly Summary (weekly TOP5 news)

Welcome to Everly.eu’s weekly summary. Let’s see the most important news we have covered during the last week in a TOP 5 list!

According to an investigation from Wired, Revolut pushed staff to pick terminating employment for “underperformance” or a “mutual agreement” including a small severance that counted as the employee leaving of their own accord. This could be illegal according to law experts.

Monzo has cut 120 jobs – but here nobody was complaining about the procedure, therefore those employees at least got their full severance. This comes with the new CEO TS Anil who has likely come to the position to do the necessary and tough decisions like this one.

Revolut has also released its new 7.0 version of their app last week, that presents itself as a financial super-app. We have also prepared an interesting profile of the new Monzo CEO TS Anil. And N26’s data research reported that only about 27% of people feel in control of their finances.
