GTN and Revolut Join Forces to Democratise Bond Investing

A new partnership has been announced between GTN and Revolut to enable European Economic Area (EEA) customers to trade bonds on the Revolut app.

Revolut is a global financial super-app with over 40 million users worldwide. Now, those in the EEA region will be able to participate in the world of fixed-income assets. Previously, this was something which had been challenging. This has been made possible by GTN, the global investment fintech, as Revolut capitalises on its instant click-to-trade functionality delivered via its FIX and REST APIs.

Bond investing is experiencing a surge in popularity. This latest collaboration empowers individuals with smaller capital to overcome traditional hurdles. It also gives them the opportunity to diversify their portfolios with a broader range of assets. This perfectly aligns with GTN’s mission of democratising access to investment opportunities for everyone.

“This is yet another step in Revolut’s mission to build an all-in-one investment platform. One that is a multi-asset class, has coverage across EEA markets, and caters to both advanced and beginner users. Bonds provide an excellent opportunity for investors to diversify their portfolios with fixed income,” said Rolandas Juteika, head of wealth and trading (EEA) at Revolut.

Democratising bond investing

As of December 2023, the global bond market stood at a staggering $100trillion. However, retail investors have faced limitations in accessing this asset class, particularly regarding government and corporate bonds outside their home countries.

Through bonds starting at just €100, GTN and Revolut are breaking down these barriers and democratising bond investing. Revolut users can effortlessly invest with a few clicks, eliminating high minimum investments and simplifying access to a broader range of assets for portfolio diversification.

“We are delighted to partner with Revolut. We want to enable their clients to access the bond markets, a truly compelling offering for small investors. Our API allows Revolut to make investing in bonds as easy as investing in stocks,” said Ankit Shah, global head of fintech at GTN. “The fractionalisation of bonds eliminates the traditional barriers of high minimum investments. Not to mention other related complexities, transforming how people build wealth.”
