Competitor Profile: TransferWise

Summary

TransferWise is a global cross-border money transfer solution. Founded in the UK in March 2010, the solution now enables users to send money globally in more than 50 currencies to recipients’ bank accounts.

TransferWise operates on a peer-to-peer (P2P) money transfer model with a network of international accounts around the world. Instead of transferring the sender’s money directly to the recipient in a foreign country, TransferWise redirects them to the recipient of another transfer going in the opposite direction, thereby eliminating the need for currency conversion and for funds to actually cross borders. This means TransferWise can offer lower transaction fees than its competitors.

To diversify its portfolio, TransferWise introduced the multi-currency Borderless account for businesses in May 2017 and later extended it to individual customers. Account holders are offered a Mastercard-branded contactless debit card that can be used for in-store and online payments as well as cash withdrawals at ATMs in multiple currencies.
