88: Revolut, Matt Baxby on Fintech Chatter

By Dexter Cousins on 29/07/2021

In episode 88 of Fintech Chatter Podcast Dexter Cousins reconnects with Matt Baxby, Country CEO of Revolut.

Recorded the week after Revolut became the UK's undisputed Fintech leader, Revolut needs no introduction to our listeners.

A MASSIVE Series E raise values Revolut at US $33bn with investors including Tiger and Softbank getting behind the financial super app last week.

Matt Baxby Revolut Australia CEO

It has been 12 months since Matt was last on the show and 18 months since Tier One People placed Matt in the Revolut Australia CEO role.

For Matt, it's been a career-defining experience. Since September he has been acting Global Banking CEO overseeing the launch of new businesses in Australia, India, North America and Asia, giving him a unique perspective on how Fintech is taking off globally.

It takes Tier One People to build world-class Fintech companies.

It has been a record-breaking 12 months for Revolut. Many people thought the global travel restrictions would have crushed Revolut's business model. Instead, they have grown to 16 million customers, launched a stack of new products, and even hit break-even.

The raise makes Revolut more valuable than Natwest Bank. Find out how they've done it and what makes this business so unique in the world of Fintech and digital banking.

Matt talks about his own personal journey from incumbent bank to Fintech rocket ship. And we also get his insights on how to build a high-performing remote-first team, who had never met each other for the first 18 months of operation!

There are some great tips on the hiring process and the skills you need to focus on to deliver long-term success.
