Nikolay Storonsky


Founder and CEO

Nikolay Storonsky joined Lehman Brothers’ emerging markets trading desk in 2006. Following that, Nikolay spent five years as an equity derivatives trader at Credit Suisse. As a frequent traveler, he began to notice he was wasting hundreds of pounds in exchange rate markups and fees. It no longer felt right and he knew there had to be a better way. Nikolay quit to start Revolut: A 21st century banking alternative designed for your global lifestyle.
