Revolut plans to offer bond trading for retail investors

Revolut bond tradingUK fintech Revolut has selected the fixed income market as its next target for potential disruption.

As of the first quarter of 2024, Revolut’s European clients will have access to Europe and the US government and corporate debt markets.

The market is worth more than an estimated €120 trillion, but despite its size, it has been largely inaccessible to retail investors, especially outside of their domestic markets. Revolut is also planning to lower the minimum investment level for clients to €100. 

"We continue to make the investment space more accessible for everyone," said Rolandas Juteika, CEO of Revolut Securities Europe and the head of wealth and trading in Europe. 

The fixed income push is part of a wider strategy to push trading services to retail investors.

Earlier this year, Revolut offered trading in selected European equities, including fractional trading, as well as extending trading hours for US stocks and introducing a new Trading Pro subscription plan. 

Meanwhile, the fintech appointed Francesca Carlesi as its chief executive in the UK, where Revolut continues to wait for a banking licence.
