Who are we?
TalkRemit is a low-cost international money transfer service that combines online remittance with instant social chat. The company was founded in 2016 by Saeed Dualeh, a highly-experienced global money transfer professional who wanted to provide people with a better solution for sending money to loved ones abroad.
The ability to send money to family and friends worldwide has been around for many years, but it was previously an expensive and inconvenient process. Senders had to stand in lengthy bank queues and incur high charges, whilst recipients waited days for their money to arrive.
The idea behind TalkRemit was born! We wanted to give people a money transfer service with a difference; a fast and affordable online platform for sending money overseas and a mobile app with both global remittance and instant chat capabilities. So, we created an all-in-one platform for people living and working abroad to send money back home, hassle-free, with free chat and video messaging features to let recipients know their money is on its way.
TalkRemit is a fully-licensed financial institution, which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), enabling UK users to send money across the globe.
