Our Mission

To connect every corner of the world
And make the global economy accessible to all.

 

The existing financial system is slow, and not transparent, inclusive or customer-friendly – it doesn’t reflect the changing nature of the global economy and the needs of business.

Our mission is to empower businesses and their customers around the world to participate in the global economy by making global payments fast, transparent and affordable – even in emerging countries with smaller, but fast-growing, economies.

With support of Tookitaki, a Thunes company, we also help to safeguard the businesses and create more transparency around the payment flows of our global customers. We deploy advanced anti-fraud and anti money-laundering (AML) measures, using Big Data and Machine Learning technologies to set the international benchmark for sustainable compliance.

Welcome to the payments infrastructure of the future.

Our Approach

We support personal economies and encourage global inclusion
