Remitly Global, a global digital financial services provider for immigrants and their families, announced that it had signed a definitive agreement to acquire Rewire, an Israeli-based financial services platform for migrant workers. Under the terms of the agreement, Remitly will acquire Rewire for approximately $80m consisting of a mix of cash and stock.

Matt Oppenheimer, Co-Founder and CEO, Remitly, said: “From the start, Remitly has focused on delivering trusted digital financial services to serve immigrant communities around the world. We share with Rewire a deep commitment to our customers and that mission. Peace of mind starts with a trusted means for sending money home for critical costs. Rewire accelerates our progress as together we will continue to bring to market trusted financial services that are inclusive and accessible to all.”

Founded in 2015 with offices in Amsterdam and Tel Aviv, Rewire’s remittance platform builds deep customer relationships and is geographically complementary to Remitly. Rewire’s customers create an account with which money can be stored to be remitted at any time. This approach deepens relationships with customers and provides additional flexibility and convenience. Additionally, Rewire’s product development and engineering teams add further capacity and expertise to a seasoned Remitly team.

“Rewire’s product enhances Remitly’s world-class remittance platform to support our shared mission to transform the lives of our customers,” said Josh Hug, Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer, Remitly. “Rewire’s product team has focused on solving complementary problems remittance customers have, and we look forward to partnering with them to deepen Remitly’s customer relationships by solving these problems in a high-quality way.”

“We are thrilled to join the team at Remitly and continue our important mission of making financial systems more inclusive for migrants as we see the community-based approach we have taken to build Rewire as highly complementary to Remitly’s approach,” said Guy Kashtan, CEO and co-founder of Rewire. “We see a huge opportunity as we combine forces to accelerate the adoption of some of the innovative products we have developed to enhance the lives of customers sending money around the world and managing their finances.”
