The collaboration between Sentbe - which has accumulated billions of Korean Won worth of transactions as of July 2019 - and MoneyGram aligns with MoneyGram's goal of providing consumers with an expanded range of digital money transfer options. Sentbe is a financial technology startup based in South Korea, making cross-border person-to-person money transfer easier, faster, and cheaper through innovative technology. Licensed as a financial institution in South Korea, Sentbe strives to provide financial opportunity and equality through disrupting the inertia of traditional finance.

"Enhancing our product offering in South Korea is a strategic move that accelerates our digital transformation in the region," said MoneyGram head of APAC and South Asia, Yogesh Sangle. "With an increasing number of foreign residents and growing numbers of working populations from neighboring Asian countries, working with Sentbe will further improve financial inclusion in South Korea and we are proud to share a legacy of customer commitment through this collaboration."

"Innovation that simplifies the money transfer process is our top priority and there is not a more perfect time than now to embark on this move with MoneyGram," added Alex Choi, CEO of Sentbe. "We are now in an even better position to meet demand for tech-savvy solutions within this space and look forward to the change this will bring to the diverse community we serve."

The new platform is now live in service.
