Swifin was born out a desire to make everyone part of a global real time payments exchange
Provide a global real time payments exchange for all
Individuals, Businesses and Government departments and international aid agencies looking to deliver aid direct to the point of need all require real time payments to just work – and be accessible and affordable for all.
Our open Payments exchange is designed to do that.
Robust enough to power national payments, addressing the digital financial transaction needs of big businesses and multinationals but simple enough to work even for the most remotely located around the globe.
And taking Banking services to the people to reach the last mile and impact lives.
Today, Partners from around the world use the Swifin Open Exchange to deliver Agency Banking Services and real time payments for customers at home and in the diaspora.
International aid agencies use Swifin for cost effective delivery of aid direct to the point of need and in some cases cutting wastage and costs by up to 90%.
