Letter from the CEO
Hello my friends,
It is great to have you here.
First and foremost, I want to acknowledge and salute your courage for leaving everything you’ve ever known and migrating to a new country to build a new life. This big step comes with a lot – sometimes having to relearn, adapting to unique weather conditions, experience culture shocks, and working twice as hard to establish yourself in your new country.
So, hats off to you.
You’re one of about 281 million international migrants worldwide who contribute 40-80 percent of labour force growth in major destination countries, and roughly $6.7 trillion, or 9.4 percent, to global GDP. (World Migration Report, 2020 : Mckinsey, 2014 and MGI, 2015).
Your hard work is recognized on a global stage, and you shouldn’t be losing your hard earned money to exorbitant fees and marked-up exchange rates when you send money home. As an immigrant myself, I understand the importance of financial support for families and the peace of mind it brings to know that loved ones are taken care of. That’s why we built a team of professionals that are passionate about creating a disruptive financial solution that can offer immigrants and their families a trustworthy, transparent, reliable, and the most cost-effective international money transfer service.
We’ve studied the industry and found several manipulative advertising where companies advertise zero transfer fees. This approach may seem like you are getting a good deal, but you’ll end up losing more money to manipulated currency rates.
We know remittance isn’t optional anymore. It’s a necessity for you and your loved ones back home, and for what it worths, it shouldn’t be difficult finding the best deals when you need to send money abroad. At FiatMatch, we are putting an end to all forms of currency exchange manipulations.
We built FiatMatch with every immigrant in mind. Starting out, our goal has been to build a solution that can end monopoly and make remittance super affordable, democratic and acessible to all. After several intense conversations with the immigrant community, we’re glad to see this vision translate into reality. The FiatMatch remittance marketplace makes it possible to send money abroad on your terms.
YOU WILL NEVER HAVE TO PAY FX SPREADS AGAIN.
Thank you for trusting us!
we’ve created a solution that makes remittance democratic, accessible to all, and offers options through a transparent peer to peer marketplace. You never have to be stuck with one option or a bad currency rate anytime you need to send money.
Our goal is the same as yours - to make sending money back home and supporting your family fair, affordable, seamless, quick and transparent.
As you try out our platform, please feel free to share your feedback with us so we can continue to improve and make the platform perfect for you. FiatMatch’s primary objective is to provide the best value possible for immigrants all around the world.
After all, it’s an important way of remaining connected as an integral part of their lives even though you’re miles away. We believe sending money should be easy, affordable, transparent and a fair process.
But instead, remittance has become a chore demanding a lot of work, research, and less value for your money. From constantly searching for money transfer services and apps that offer the best rates, to dealing with hidden costs and money transfer delays.
So, we explored, spoke and got feedback from thousands of immigrants like you, who believe there should be a better way of sending money. This prompted us to ask ourselves - what should sending money back home look like? The answer to that question birthed FiatMatch.
