Revolut founder gives his word “that we are doing everything we can to support our customers” during the coronavirus

As several European challenger banks move to limit the fallout from the coronavirus, Revolut’s CEO and founder has issued a statement.

“The last weeks have been tough everywhere so I’d like to start this message by sending my best wishes to you and your family,” Nikolay Storonsky said in a blog. “You have my word that we are doing everything we can to support our customers at this challenging time.

“The Coronavirus pandemic is causing unprecedented movement in financial markets. Naturally this can be alarming and can allow rumours and false information to spread quickly. To put your mind at ease, I’d like to make Revolut’s position super clear.”

He continued that because Revolut is a digital and cloud-based company it has been easy for the venture to enable its employees to work from home. “That means that our 2,000+ staff can and will continue to support you wherever they are and wherever you are,” the FInTech head honcho added.

Storonsky reminded people that the UK neobank raised $500m in February and said he wanted “to make clear that for Revolut it’s business as usual.”

He concluded, “Thanks again for choosing Revolut, and stay safe out there.”
