Speaking about this latest partnership, Xpress Money CEO, Sudhesh Giriyan said, "It is the expertise, our robust network, world-class technology and compliance systems, and ability to process secure cross-border money transfers that make us a partner of choice for companies across different geographies. The knowhow and commitment that Geoswift brings to the fore is a testimony to their growth in the payments technology space. I am confident about the success of this partnership by virtue of the combined proficiency that both the organisations have to offer."

"The payments ecosystem is always ever-changing, in particular for cross-border money transfers in and out of China. It can somehow be challenging due to complex regulatory requirements and differences in global and local compliance standards. With our strategic partnership with Xpress Money, we are confident that both our combined capabilities will enhance the cross-border money transfer experience for our end-users," said Raymond Qu, CEO and founder of Geoswift.
