Revolut’s Joint Accounts service capabilities

As such, Joint Accounts alongside Revolut <18 has the potential to become a centre of family finance, yet they can be equally leveraged by all types of duos, whether they are partners, siblings, roommates, or friends. As per the announcement details, Europe-based Revolut customers are making use of Joint Accounts predominantly for everyday spending, with the top spending categories confirmed by the firm to be supermarket shopping and restaurants.

The spokesperson added that Joint Accounts is set to enable customers to sort out money matters with whomever their financial life is shared with, in an easy manner, unifying the best of currently existing social and banking features.
