    Fintech has become more popular than a white Telfar bag. After an $800 million funding round, Revolut, a London-based fintech startup, is now the UK’s biggest private company ever with a valuation of $33 billion. It was worth just $5.5 billion last year.

    Revolut falls into the category of “neobanks,” which plug into traditional banking infrastructure and repackage it with a smooth, easy-to-navigate platform. Revolut allows users to bank, invest, transfer money, budget, or do anything else their financial heart desires.
