Estel Remittances

The Future of International Remittances with Estel

International Remittances (or, cross border payments), is an act of sending or receiving payments internationally. The colossal size of this market is estimated to reach over $250 trillion by 2027, from over $156 trillion today.

Remittances are broadly divided into two segments:

  • Business to business (B2B) payments, the market size of which is $150 trillion annually
  • Person to person (P2P) remittances, which is a $800 billion annual market

Remittance operators globally operate under 2 business models:

  • As Remittance Aggregators, when they facilitate payments by acting as a Hub or an Exchange, connecting multiple Send side & Receive side operators in different countries
  • And secondly when they act as Service Providers to end users, both businesses & individuals

Under both models, Remittance operators provide:

  • Transaction processing
  • Routing or Switching
  • Foreign Exchange conversion
  • Financial settlement

Estel provides a robust, scalable, secure, feature-rich Remittance Platform to enable these services for Remittance Operators and Fintechs, with appropriate customizations to tailor fit the technology to our client’s needs.
