Sending money abroad doesn’t have to be slow, difficult and filled with hidden fees. When you’re sending money abroad, it should be as simple and easy as buying a coffee: and you shouldn’t lose out because of the exchange rate.
Fluid is the only company offering free and instant international money transfers, changing how people send money to their loved ones in or from Africa.
Founded by investment banker Robert Sharratt and funded by Norwegian billionaire Alexander Vik, Fluid has high hopes for its impact on the financial world.
It’s no secret that the cost of globally sending money to or from Africa is two times higher on average than sending it to other regions.
The brand believes that everyone should have access to fair pricing when it comes to sending money abroad—whether they’re from Europe or Asia, America or Australia. Anyone who needs help getting funds where they need them should be able to do so without breaking the bank.
Fluid is an instant international money transfer service with no fees whatsoever. You can rest easy knowing that if you need extra cash for your loved ones back home—not even the bank working hours will stop the transfer.
“You do not need permission from anyone.” Chairman Alex Vik said to Forbes.
Fluid provides a solution to the rush for USD
The devaluation of many African currency evaluations against the US dollar has had a seismic impact on global currency transactions. Fluid offers an easy remedy by giving Africans an easy way to access USD, EUR, and GBP without geolimits.
Fluid accounts also offer a high savings rate (targeted 4% APY) on any deposits, and money does not have to be locked to earn yield simply – everything in your account earns interest that is paid out daily.
The firm believes that the exchange and transfer markets can be simplified: the financial world is truly global, and that should be the case no matter what country you live in. We bring that equality to the market.
It only takes an email to open an account in Fluid, and it’s free forever.
