Our consumer and SME business, Instarem, is on a mission to simplify money for customers across the world by leveraging the latest technology and being the change-driver for the complexities around global payments. Customers that use Instarem, are empowered to do more with their money in an intuitive, transparent, and cost-effective manner.

Instarem began in 2015 with a vision to simplify the cross-border payments experience.

That expansion included an innovative technology infrastructure that makes sending, spending and receiving money across borders faster, more transparent, and better integrated with our customers’ lives and business needs. InstaReM is powered by the same platform that we offer our enterprise clients. That platform is Nium.

Our network is powered by our portfolio of licenses, hard-earned by building trust with financial regulators in over 38 countries. This combination of regulatory and tech assets is unique to Nium and is at the core of our unique value proposition.
