IMTC is basically a forum of the Money Transfer, Remittances & Cross-Border Payments Industry, a forum 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, to people or companies, personal or commercial, formal or informal. Some might be designated as remittances, payments, international compensation of employees, etc.. Globally, the Money Transfer Industry is very large and diverse but very scattered across all countries with partnerships interconnecting the networks, some very mature and regulated (and even over-regulated) to some that are emerging and maybe underegulated, full of innovative solution builders and leading-edge entrepreneurs. Invigorated by technology developments, new services are emerging and the RemTECH Awards have been launched in 2017 to boost innovations in the remittance space!
To this industry, IMTC brings the researchers, the consultants, the politicians, the regulators, the activists, but also the providers of services or products that intersect with the industry’s core services. Some might be providing financial services to the same users as well as foreign exchange, communications, travel, packaging services, etc. The technology providers, the auditors, the legal & regulatory advisory services, the compliance professionals are also welcome to share their expertise and contribute to strengthen this community.
