Nium, Travelex, digital remittance, Asia Pacific, Travelex International Money TransferTravelex, a foreign exchange brand, has partnered with global payments platform Nium to extend digital remittance services to their users. Presently live in Australia and Singapore, the digital remittance offering which is ‘Travelex International Money Transfer’ will be serviced by Nium’s global payment rails and real-time payment capabilities, enabling the forex company’s users to remit money to more than 50 markets across the world almost instantly. The service will be further expanded to the rest of Asia soon.

“Extending the Travelex digital suite to offer remittance services is a logical next-step and continues our focus on digital innovation which includes our market-leading online currency exchange platform, the multi-award-winning Travelex Money Card and a global network of FX ATM’s,” shared Cameron Hume, Managing Director, Travelex Asia Pacific.

Travelex will be leveraging Nium’s Remittance-as-a-Service (RaaS) solution in order to launch this service. Introduced last year, Nium’s RaaS solution makes it smoother for companies to become providers of payment services on their own digital platforms. RaaS will provide not just the full stack technology solution, but also incorporates the expansive regulatory portfolio and a team of experts from Nium.

“Travelex is the leading brand in foreign exchange globally and across the APAC region. They are recognised and trusted as experts in their field. At Nium, we understand how difficult it is for a company to introduce remittance or money transfer services at scale, and we are excited that Travelex has selected Nium to be their trusted partner for this journey,” said Michael Minassian, Regional Head of Nium’s Consumer and SME Business.

“Nium’s mission is to create a global fintech infrastructure that can enable banks, financial institutions and other fintech companies to launch and scale innovative digital financial services without the complexity, time and cost previously required to do so. We look forward to working closely with Travelex to offer a robust digital remittance offering to their customers,” Michael continued.

Consumers can access Travelex International Money Transfer, via their local country website, with an App to be launched shortly. “Travelex is delighted to team up with Nium to offer remittance services. Following a rigorous selection process we were impressed with their holistic solution which encompassed the technology framework and the expertise of the team. In today’s competitive payments environment, new technology makes a huge difference in delivering the best customer experience,” expressed Darren Brown, Managing Director, Travelex Australia and New Zealand.
