“India is the top receiving market for migrant remittances, receiving $62.7 billion in 2016. Millions of households, predominantly rural, are largely dependent on these transfers for family maintenance, savings and investment. I’m confident that our service and combined networks will not only provide greater access for customers to receive remittances, but will also result in a successful partnership for years to come,” concluded Bianchi.

Mr. Karthikeyan Balasubramanian, Managing Director of Weizmann Forex Limited, added: 
“Remittances have emerged as a leading alternative to conventional banking channels. By partnering with a global leader like Ria Money Transfer, we are confident we will address the rising demand for quick, reliable and efficient money transfer services while reaching a wider audience in India and globally.”

In Dubai, UAE, Ria also announced its expansion in the Middle East, amplifying the quality of its network in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries – one of the world’s top remittance sending regions – and India, the number one remittance receiving country in the world. Following the 2015 acquisition of leading Malaysian money transfer company, IME, Ria has also increased its footprint in South East Asia, adding almost 20,000 new locations to its network.
