The inspiration for our business came in 2005 from a World Bank report stating that between 10 & 20% of all money sent home by migrant workers was lost to fees charged by multi-national companies.
Having built the world’s first peer to peer currency exchange platform we felt technology could reduce the costs for cross border and cross currency transactions. In 2007, in conjunction with the Commonwealth Head of Governments Meeting in Uganda, Commonwealth Business Council and the Ugandan Government, we created a card to card transfer programme to help address these issues and improve the lives of the world’s poorest communities.
Today we remain committed to using our cutting edge financial platform and our team’s passion for problem solving. We want to power a revolution in financial services.
We support our employees so they can better support our customers.
We build long term relationships.
In the way we work with our customers and partners.
We keep our customers at the forefront of technology and their market.
We make complexity easy to understand.
Our mission is to develop a new kind of digital banking platform that will revolutionise the financial technology sector.
We use Software as a Service – SaaS – to let every company from Fintech start-ups to international banks have access to new and better ways to do business. We believe in decreasing the time it takes for customers to go to market, reducing costs, improving security and inbuilt flexibility, we can create new kinds of financial services. This means that we can help everyone, including the world’s most disadvantaged to have access to the financial services they need to improve their lives.
With a team made up of innovative thinkers, we are not afraid to challenge the market and are proud to be trusted advisers to our customers with a reputation for creating new and simple solutions in the complex world of technology.
Today we provide the most flexible, bank grade, secure system for the global market. We intend to continue to create, innovate and deliver new financial technology to empower the world.
