A fintech platform that smoothens access to essential cross-border financial services for modest income migrants through accessible social platforms.

We are re-imagining migrant banking and democratizing access to essential financial services to migrants, to help them grow.

rise: Banking for Migrants

Migrants matter - 250 million migrants support a billion people and are an engine of economic growth globally – yet migrant banking is broken.

rise is Re-imagining banking for migrants, bringing essential financial services from their home and host country on one platform.

Putting migrants in charge of their finances – seamlessly.

We started rise with a simple mission – to put migrants in control of their finances.Migrants send upto 90% of their income back to their families and have no control on how this money is spent. Legacy financial services have focused on reducing the cost of remittances and the time it takes to move the money.But we believe, even if free, remitting 90% of your income is the most expensive thing a migrant can do: giving up control of their hard earned income. We are building a better way and are backed by some of the best investors to help migrants grow.
