About Us

Greater access for deeper inclusion

Our story:
Helping to make financial services accessible to everyone

 

It is estimated that 1.7 Billion adults worldwide are still excluded from the global economy lacking access to any financial service. At Thunes we made it our mission and we work 24/7/365 to solve one of the world’s most pressing problems: making financial services global and accessible to everyone.

We are able to do this by interconnecting diverse payment systems that enable better movement of funds into and out of emerging economies. Our network makes it possible for Mobile Wallet Operators, Corporations, Merchants, Money Transfer Operators and Banks to move funds in real time to and from emerging countries. We offer three key payment solutions (P2P remittance processing, corporate mass payouts and digital payment services) and our global network spans over 80 countries.

We are solution focused

Fairness, honesty and ethics are non-negotiable

We are adaptable

We work smart, together

We never give up
