The flow of money around the world has a huge impact on countries and communities. We take our contribution to that flow, and that impact, seriously. For us, our lower prices don't just mean savings for you. We want to help maximise the impact those savings can have in the places you send money to. But don't just take our word for it:
“Remittances are now the largest source of external financing in developing countries. However, they can be expensive relative to the often low incomes of migrant workers and the rather small amounts sent.”
The World Bank
“If the transaction costs on remittances worldwide were cut from an average of 10 percent to an average of 5 percent, it would unlock $15 billion a year in poor countries.”
Azimo believes in offering great rates for our customers and saving them money. We are the cheapest in the market by a long way. We offer all our customers the chance to donate a portion of the money they save to charity.Corporate Giving
We try to do as much as we can for charity, knowing that we are very fortunate to be making a good living doing what makes us happy. Azimo is committed to donating 10% of its annual profits to our chosen charities.In Kind Donation
We provide selected non-profit organisations with cost price access to our premium money transfer product so they can more easily and cheaply move money from where it is raised to where it is spent. In some countries our network is the only secure way of getting money into a remote location. Savings can be as much as 500% over banks and other money transfer operators, meaning more money goes to those that need it the most.Employee Giving
Every member of staff is given a free day every quarter to allow them to get involved with work in the community. Through this, our people work with local and national projects and many take part in a wide range of fundraising activities.Our Lead Charity Partners
