At the end of last year, Revolut’s  EU specialised banking license was extended into a full banking license, meaning RevoIut Bank UAB is now allowed to offer not only deposit taking and loan granting services, but also payment services. That made this merger possible, and means Revolut’ll be able to keep offering exciting new products and services to all their customers via RevoIut Bank UAB. In just six years, Revolut has attracted more than 18 million customers around the world.
