We’re building a way that’s faster and more convenient than the banks that came before us, and at a drastically lower, transparent price. Staying profitable as we grow is an essential proof point in this journey. We need to be able to scale globally while building a business that people can trust will be here for the long term. The numbers show that we’re continuing to do that, while staying focused on bringing our service to everyone that needs it.”

TransferWise stated that it has processed a total of £42 billion in cross currency transfers, with a total volume of £67 billion including domestic payments across the financial year. It sends over £4 billion in cross-border payments every month.
