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.

Our Approach

We support personal economies and encourage global inclusion

By evolving archaic banking systems and fostering financial inclusion, we are helping the 1.7 billion unbanked participate in the global economy.

We build relationships, not just networks

We build relationships, not just networks

We create partnerships between people, not just businesses. Our team is on the ground across the world – and always seeks to add value and build potential in our partner economies and countries.

We take our responsibilities seriously

We take our responsibilities seriously
