Paroma Chatterjee was also named as one of the top 25 women leaders in the financial technology sector in Asia, last year by The Financial Technology Report.

CEO Nikolay Storonsky told Business Insider India that the company is about to make an investment of $20 million–$25 million to break into India by the end of 2021.

“I couldn’t be more excited to join Revolut and become a part of this phenomenal growth journey. It is an honor and a privilege to be asked to lead the business for such a world-class company, in a country that presents one of the largest opportunities globally for Revolut.” Chatterjee said in a statement.

“I look forward to building an exceptionally talented team and working with them, as we continue to develop superlative financial solutions for millions of consumers in India,” she added.

Revolut CEO and founder, Nik Storonsky, says: “With a wealth of experience in the fintech and consumer tech sectors and an outstanding track record, Paroma is an excellent fit for the role and her appointment is a major achievement in our continued mission to become the world’s first truly global financial superapp.”

He adds: “India is a core market in our expansion strategy with a huge supply of talent, and we’re excited to tap into that talent pool to help Revolut go from strength to strength.”

India is known to be a tough place to enter for FinTechs with a wide reliance on cash, stiff banking regulations, and limited internet access compared with other countries.

However, India is one of the biggest technology markets with a $100 billion FinTech opportunity according to Boston Consulting Group and FICCI.
