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).
