Monzo, a UK Neobank, recently struck gold with profitability – a headline grabber! ๐ŸŽฏ
Monzo, along with most UK Neobanks, stands unique, holding a banking license.

Odd one out? Revolut! They’ve been trailblazing without a banking license, utilizing the services of other banks. An unorthodox approach in the UK fintech scene.

The question that keeps buzzing: “Is Revolut’s strategy sustainable or a risky gamble?” ๐ŸŽฒ๐Ÿง Your guess is as good as mine.

Even without a license, Revolut isn’t free from the regulatory microscope. Yes, you heard that right! They’re not completely off the regulatory hook – a wake-up call to fintech aspirants.

Now, they’re scrambling for their license. Will they succeed? Only time will tell.โณ๐Ÿ”ฎ

In the end, the neo-bank landscape in the UK is a compelling story of innovation, risk, and regulation.

The journey of Monzo and Revolut gives us a clear view – a license or not, regulation is inescapable.


Digging deep on banks is what I do.
