What’s the story?

InstaReM began in 2015 with a vision to simplify the cross-border payments experience. While continuing to be an expert in consumer remittances, the team behind InstaReM expanded and scaled its offerings to meet the needs of SMEs,Financial Institutions, Enterprises and even other payment service providers. 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.
