Azimo turns 5 today!

It’s a very special day here at Azimo – we’re turning 5!

5 years ago today, we started with an idea. Three people wanted to change the world for hard-working migrants, to give them another option of transferring money back home to family and friends that wouldn’t empty their wallets.

They wanted to make sure that more money actually went to those who mattered most, and could go directly back into the economy to help strengthen nations around the world.

Taking this idea, and combining it with the surge in mobile usage (by 2020 it’s predicted over 6 billion people will own a smartphone), Azimo was born.

5 years later, – we now send to over 190 countries, are trusted by over 1 million users around the world, and have the largest digital network of banks and payout providers. We also offer an award-winning app, available on for both iOS and Android.

As a company built by migrants for migrants, we’re proud to help connect families and friends around the world, no matter where they are. Here’s to the next 5 years, making it even more amazing than the last. And here’s to each and every one of our customers. Thank you for being with us.
