Revolut向警方上报疑似洗钱行为,谁说Fintech创企不靠谱?

过去几个月,数字银行服务平台Revolut向英国国家犯罪局和金融行为监管局报告了多起疑似洗钱的支付交易行为。

Revolut于2015年在伦敦成立,目前已累计吸引用户近300万。

通过Revolut平台,用户可以获得及时支出分析,进行25种货币的实时汇率兑换,国际汇款也没有手续费。

此外,Revolut还提供旅行保险、即时信贷和加密货币买卖产品。

对于本次的报告行为,Revolut发言人表示,目前平台用户已经接近300万,并在积极向亚洲和北美市场扩张。因此,平台合规性至关重要。Revolut致力于通过人工和机器学习技术的双重保障,采取及时行动发现可疑行为,保障用户资金安全。

据悉,目前Revolut目前有近80名全职员工专门负责合规性相关风险监测工作。

2018年4月,Revolut完成新一轮2.5亿美元融资。融资过后,Revolut预估市值达到17亿美元(约合12亿英镑),成功进入金融科技独角兽行列。

Digital banking fintech Revolut called in police and regulators in the last few months after finding suspected money laundering on its system.

Revolut contacted the National Crime Agency and City watchdog the Financial Conduct Authority after finding the suspected payments.

The digital challenger bank was founded in London in 2015 and now has nearly three million customers.

Its app allows customers to receive instant spending analytics, hold and exchange 25 currencies with the real exchange and send free international money transfers.

It also allows geolocation travel insurance, instant credit and a cryptocurrency buy and sell offering.

A spokesperson for Revolut said: "As we begin to approach three million users and expand the business into North America and Asia, we need to make sure our compliance is absolutely top notch. We're really proud that, through a combination of humans and machine-learning technology, we are able to swiftly detect any suspicious behaviour, take the appropriate action and keep Revolut free of financial crime."

Revolut has nearly 80 full-time staff working on compliance issues as well as technology to spot potential suspicious or high-risk activity.

In April Revolut entered the ranks of the so-called unicorns, tech start-ups firms with a valuation of over $1bn, achieving a $1.7bn (£1.2bn) valuation following a $250m fundraising round.
