About this event

George Thomson, Country Manager Italy of Revolut, is going to be our guest on the 27th of September.

Revolut launched in July 2015 with a punchy mission: to turn the financial banking sector on its head. With Revolut, users can set up an app-based current account in 60 seconds, spend abroad in over 150 currencies with no fees, hold and exchange 25 currencies in-app and send free domestic and international money transfers with the real exchange rate.

Since July 2015, London-based Revolut has signed up over 2.5 million customers across Europe, processed more than 150 million transactions and has a total transaction volume of over $22 billion to date. Revolut has raised a total of $336m from some of the most notable investors including DST Global, Index Ventures, Balderton Capital and Ribbit Capital.

The event is co-hosted by Copernico and Fintech District.

Who is George?

George started trading stocks at the tender age of 12. He cultivated this interest by working in hedge funds as a teenager and then studying at Warwick Business School. During University he joined eToro, the revolutionary social trading platform and quickly became one of the top performing traders out of the 10M+ users. After graduating from University he worked first at IBM and then at Deloitte Digital as a consultant. His clients were all big names in Financial Services and he grew increasingly frustrated with the slow pace of innovation in this space. He therefore decided to quit his London based career and travel the world for 18 months, qualifying as a yoga teacher and living from his own trading & investing. He recently joined Revolut, the fastest growing FinTech in Europe and one of the fastest every unicorns, as the Country Manager for Italy.
