Launched in 2012, digital money transfer company Azimo was created to harness the smartphone revolution, disrupt the remittance sector and lower prices for migrants sending money home.
With the growth of mobile and the rising digital expectations of consumers, founder and CEO Michael Kent realised the power of a seamless, anywhere, anytime money transfer service that didn’t cost a huge fee.
Azimo now has over a million users connected to the service and has created the largest digital network in the world, enabling money to be sent to over 5 billion people in 190+ countries, from any internet-connected device.
Unlike other money transfer services who are only able to send money to a bank account, Azimo understands that sometimes, depending on where the money is going, that’s not a viable option. Over 2.6 billion adults globally don’t have bank accounts. And even if sending money to a bank account is possible, it’s not always the preferred option. Azimo can deliver the money in 80+ currencies to bank accounts, cash, mobile wallets, mobile top up as well as home delivery.
Azimo is at the fore-front of tech innovation and has partnered with Facebook and Apple amongst others, in order to provide a fast, simple and secure service to change the way people living abroad send money to their loved ones.
