Revolutionaries, we’re absolutely thrilled to tell you that some awesome, clever tech people have picked us out for recognition as an innovative and radical financial service!
We’ve been named one of The World’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Finance by the very trendy and progressive Fast Company tech magazine. So why did we get on there? “For slashing pesky foreign-exchange costs by creating a transparent peer-to-peer network.” Who said the good guys can’t win? And it’s great to hear that we’re showing our competitors how it’s done! “TransferWise drives competitors wild with the foreign-exchange rates it delivers: about 0.5% of the transaction (versus the typical 4.5%) to send someone money internationally.” Other names on the list include Mastercard, Bitcoin and Square (which raised raised $341m), so it’s great to be in such esteemed company. We’re absolutely delighted to be getting all this recognition from people who think we’re helping solve problems for people who want to move their money around. Keep following our blog for more news and, as ever, vive la révolution!
