IMTC is part of The Platinum Network, LLC and the brand developed to bring to the International Money Transfer, Remittances & Cross-Border Payments Industry, conferences & events, forums where all the colleagues from the industry can network, partner, learn, share information and together, strengthen and grow the industry worldwide. The growth of IMTC is the result of the growth and broadening of the Non-Bank Financial Industry & its Banking Partners in more than a decade. From cross-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, fintech & start-ups, 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 were launched in 2017 by The Platinum Network to boost innovations in the remittance space, as well as the Finchain Events, the crossroads between Fintech & Blockchain, launched in 2019.
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.
