Since a few years ago traditional banking industry has been changing and shifting toward a more digitized environment, with a customer-centric approach, from operations to commercial offering.
Nowadays, it is not uncommon to find ourselves diving into an app to share a dinner bill with our friends, or paying groceries with our smartphones, without even opening an account in a Bank's physical office space. Those days are long gone, when to use your money, you had to go to your bank and sign on a piece of paper to pay your bills...at least for some of us in some places.
This time, we'd like to learn from the experiences of Revolut: a platform born in 2015 with the aim of "building a friction-less platform to use and manage money around the world". With more than 300 employees, this London-based company is revolutionizing peer-to-peer payments, travel money and currency exchange services. Come and learn what's next in their pipeline from their Spain's General Manager: Pablo Viguera.
