The Platinum Network, PNET, is the online home of the International Money Transfers, Remittances & and Cross-Border Payments Community. It’s roots go back to the creation of IMTC Conferences in 2019 by Hugo Cuevas-Mohr, a forum of the Money Transfer, Remittances & Cross-Border Payments Industry. A forum and gathering of people involved in providing x-border financial services, such as Money Transfer Operators (MTOs), Foreign Exchange firms, Banks, Payment Processors and Mobile Operators involved in financial services (MMOs), as well as a large array of institutions, brick-and-mortar or digital-first, for-profit and non-profit, that provide services along migration corridors or not, to people or companies, personal or commercial, formal or informal. Some might be designated as remittances, payments, international compensation of employees, or just the exchange of digital tokens, crypto currencies from one hand to another.
Globally, the Money Transfer Industry is very large and diverse but very scattered across all countries with very different regulations, with partnerships interconnecting the networks, some very mature and regulated (and even over-regulated) to some that are emerging and maybe underregulated, full of innovative solution builders and leading-edge entrepreneurs. Invigorated by technology developments, new services are emerging and we launched in 2017 the RemTECH Awards to boost innovations in the remittance space!
We also launched Regliance in 2020 but had to move our Miami maiden event to 2021 do to the CO-VID pandemic, to 2021. Regliance in at the crossroads between Compliance, Regtech, and Regulation.
To our presential events and to our virtual events that PNET hosts, we bring the industry executives, the experts and consultants, the innovators and start-ups, the fintechs, the regulators, the international institutions, public and private, the activists, researchers, and academics, but also the providers of services or products that intersect with the industry’s core services. Some might be providing financial services, logistics services or social and economic services to the same users this wonderful community serves. There are so many technology providers, auditors, legal & regulatory advisors, compliance professionals that share their expertise and contribute to strengthen this community.
The vision is simple. Bring to the virtual world the warmth and beauty of our presential events so we can reach more colleagues the world over. PNET is a safe virtual space for the industry to meet, network, share knowledge, build partnerships that surpass borders, and empower institutions and professionals from all over the world.
We have teamed-up with Mohr World Consulting and Mohr World Corporate Partners for the creation of PNET. The dedication of our Partners, the Support of Sponsors & Speakers, the commitment of the PNET Team in building this online community has been incredible and we are deeply thankful to everyone. The future is in the hands of the PNET Members and their passion for the worldwide community that we cherish.
