About Us

Our Story

As professionals working away from our home countries, we were faced with many challenges and unanswered questions; how to remit money back home, why the exorbitant transfer fees and low exchange rates offered by existing remittance providers, which ones of these providers were safe and secure, and will deliver the desired termination point to our families back home, ultimately maximising the value of our hard-earned money. We were sure most professionals would have shared this experience at one time or the other.

This shared experience triggered by even more personal experiences, birth SwapMoney; Members swapping values in a marketplace to maximise value. This age-old, while uniquely fresh idea to money exchange was the outcome of many nights of discussion, informal surveys and in-depth analysis of the global money transfer markekplace.
