Story

TransferWise was born of frustration

Sending money abroad is deceptively expensive, thanks to the hidden charges we’ve all been forced to pay. The banks claim “free money transfers”, “0% commission.” Sounds like money’s already flowing freely, but far from it. It’s pure propaganda.

TransferWise removes all the wrongness, letting people send money abroad at the lowest possible true cost. Using only real exchange rates and tiny not-hidden-charges. Read more

Why Join TransferWise

Vision

Our Mission

We want to make transferring money abroad a different experience for our customers. Cheaper, easier, fairer.

Our values

THIS ISN'T JUST A JOB. WE'RE A REVOLUTION

We're making a positive, irreversible change in the world. 

We can't do that hanging out in our comfort zones. 

And no-one can do this alone - we need each other.
