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!

The partnership of N26 and TransferWise means N26’s customer will have an in-app access to the TransferWise features with 30 currencies available. Both institutions are partnered since 2016.

After the Wirecard scandal, many fintech companies were unfortunately affected as much as Wirecard since they depended on the infrastructural provider. One of them was the all-card-in-one Curve. But Curve’s staff was able to solve the whole situation during one weekend.

Revolut added American Express to its open banking feature. TransferWise is set to launch an investment feature as it lands license from FCA and Revolut has allowed their EEA customers to invest in silver via their “super-app”.
