Code of conduct

We’re on a mission to reinvent the way the world does money. To make it easier, more useful and more rewarding for everyone. We all have a part to play in building the world’s first financial super app. This Code of Conduct is designed to make sure we win the right way.

Message from Nik Storonsky, CEO

We believe that brilliant people, working together in an honest, high-achieving culture, are the key to delivering the amazing products and services our customers love. And we know that our behaviour towards one another is critical to that success. Our Code of Conduct sets out the principles that must guide the ways we behave and the decisions we make. Yes, it’s a little formal, but it has to be to ensure that we all act with integrity and in the best interests of our customers, people, communities and stakeholders, at all times.

Vision, values and conduct

Our vision is to build the world’s first financial super app and to do this we need to assemble and retain a brilliant Dream Team, who are happy and fulfilled at work. Our culture is true to our values; where everyone is accountable for their actions, are encouraged to speak up, strive for excellence and always do the right thing.

We expect all our people to uphold the conduct rules set by our regulators:

  • Act with integrity
  • Treat customers fairly
  • Act with due skill, care and diligence
  • Be open and co-operative with regulators
  • Observe proper standards of market conduct

Our approach to decision making

We consider the ethical implications of our decisions and only act if appropriate to do so. Ask yourself these questions. If the answer is yes, the decision to move forward appears appropriate. If the answer is no or not sure, seek help first. Ask for guidance

Ask yourself these questions

1
Customer outcome

Is my decision in the best interest of our customers?

2
Honesty and Integrity

Would I feel proud of my decision if it were reported on the news?

3
Compliance with laws, regulations & policies

Do my actions comply with all regulatory and legal requirements?

4
Long-term vision

Will this decision still seem like a good idea five years from now?

Closing thoughts

Martin Gilbert, Revolut Chairman

Our core values are the heart and soul of everything we do. They guide us in difficult as well as good times and should be the measure against which we judge ourselves as leaders. Managers set the tone from the top and should demonstrate that we live and breathe Revolut’s values. This Code of Conduct is endorsed by Revolut’s Board of Directors and provides the principles of good conduct that we uphold
