Finder.com is passionate about helping people make better financial decisions. Over a three-month period in early 2017, finder conducted an investigative and thorough research project into the international money transfer industry, making live transfers, generating quotes, conducting user testing and verifying provider information. The research set out to identify which providers were setting the benchmark across the categories of Best Rates, Most Trustworthy, Fastest Transfer, Most Convenient and Best User Experience, forming the basis of the inaugural finder Money Transfer Awards. A combined team of independent and internal researchers closely examined 35 providers, collecting 1,575 data points before narrowing down to 13 finalists.
