By Dexter Cousins on 23/09/2020

In ep 43 Fintech Chatter Podcast Dexter Cousins chats Fintech with Scott Eddington, APAC Managing Director of WorldRemit, a Fintech tackling the issues of financial inclusion and supporting the unbanked.

Scott talks through the payment trends since Covid hit and how emerging economies are embracing digital wallets.

Covering 150 countries around the world and with over 4 million customers, WorldRemit plays a critical role in helping economic migrants send money to their families back home.

Scott shares how WorldRemit ultimately helps millions of children to go to school,  thousands of people to receive medical treatment and, every week, thousands of people to pay their bills.

TCV, Accel and Leapfrog Investments have invested $375 million WorldRemit – and as early backers of the likes of Facebook, Spotify and Netflix, they are in good company!
