SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 3 February 2021 – TranSwap, a home-grown cross-border payment platform, has
officially launched in the United Kingdom. This expansion further strengthens

Benjamin Wong, co-founder and CEO of TranSwap, said, “UK has been on the cards for years as it is one
of the world’s leading financial centres and a source of global economic
development. Not only is it a gateway into Europe, but it is also a
sought-after investment destination for businesses who are instrumental in the
country’s economic growth. Now with fintech as a game-changer in streamlining
cross-border payments, businesses can gain access to international markets
through improved payment options and TranSwap seeks to simplify the traditional
cross-border payment process for them. It is more crucial than ever to support
global trade and help combat the economic consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic.”

Grant McKenzie, who will spearhead the firm’s
operations in the UK as Director & UK Country Head, said
, “TranSwap is well-poised for continued growth and
I am excited to lead their UK operations.  Much like with other countries, businesses in
the UK are the backbone of the economy and there is a pressing need to make
overseas payments more efficient and cost-effective for them to internationalise.
Covid-19 has created unprecedented challenges for economies and the knock-on
effects of the pandemic have urged businesses to evaluate alternatives to
unlock cash flow and ensure business continuity. By providing them with a
cost-effective cross-border payment solution, we hope to help them through
improved access to financial services.”
