  Interesting developments - Compliance and regulatory issues seem to be causing problems that are imploding on the team at Revolut.... as the media has it: "Some speak of a new maturity in Storonsky, who’s been criticized before for a toxic and target-obsessed work culture."   https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-05-06/revolut-33-billion-banking-app-wants-to-play-in-the-big-league

  Article mentions "between their accounts" many times. Can someone confirm that these accounts can be at different banks? Or is VRP restricted to multiple accounts within the same bank? When I was in UK, my bank did not support either whereas banks in India have been supporting the latter for decades (but, AFAIK, still don't support the former.)

  Grewal v. Grewal. Not since Kramer versus Kramer have I come across the plaintiff and defendant with the same name. Since the movie about divorce case, same surname was a given. Given the identical last names, Finextra might want to use full names while attributing quotes to the two Grewals. The last one, attributed to Grewel (sic), will particularly benefit from the full name.
