WHY INSTAREM?

InstaReM is a disruptor to traditional remittance firms. Here’s why:

  • Transparency: InstaReM’s transaction charges are shown before you make the remittance, unlike banks or traditional remittance firms which charge an FX spread (the difference between the inter-bank currency conversion rate and the rate quoted by the bank or money transfer company) in addition to the transaction fee.
  • Comparative transaction charges: InstaReM offers transparent Zero-Margin FX rates. It offers mid-market rates sourced directly from Reuters and does not add any margins on FX at all, unlike most banks and money transfer services. The company just charges a nominal fee (between 0.25-1%) to cover the costs of processing the transactions. InstaReM ranks as the most cost-effective money transfer service in a number of corridors originating from Asia-Pacific in the World Bank’s Remittance Price Worldwide database.
  • Speed of transaction: InstaReM is able to transfer funds typically within 24 hours in Asia, compared to the average two to four days transfer by banks.
  • Wide reach: InstaReM can send funds to over 3.21 billion people in their local bank accounts across the globe. Businesses and individuals from Australia, Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, India, EU and the US are able to remit money to 55+ countries worldwide.
  • Bulk payments: Corporations/SMEs use InstaReM's MassPay platform to manage and control their high-volume remittances to multiple beneficiaries in multiple currencies via a seamless process.
