Revolut has also submitted an application for a banking license to the U.K. Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) and the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in January.

The challenger bank wants more clients to deposit their salaries and switch over to Revolut as their main bank account provider.

In Lithuania where Revolut offers banking services, the customer may apply for credit with a limit that’s twice the value of monthly salary income (up to €6,000).

The company also offers personal loans between €1,000 and €15,000.

“Revolut is now the fastest-growing fintech company in Europe because we put the customer at the heart of everything that we do. Our product design is second to none, we have no hidden fees, and we are constantly building new and innovative financial products”, said Virgilijus Mirkės, Chief Executive Officer of Revolut Bank.

“Launching the bank in ten new European markets will provide a greater level of security and confidence for our customers, and will enable us to launch a host of new products and services in the near future”, he added.

With regards to secured deposits, Revolut Bank’s customers are also be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS), which provides government protection on deposits of up to £85,000 ($114,700).
