Amid rapid growth, the company is planning to invest heavily in technology-driven products and infrastructure.

“Our Wise Account and Wise Business products got even better as we launched 2-step payment approvals and employee spending controls on mobile for our business customers. The average price that our customers paid for cross-border transactions reduced from 0.67% to 0.61% in Q1 FY23 compared with the same period last year and was unchanged compared with Q4 FY22,” Käärmann said.

Wise witnessed consistent growth in revenues and volume in the past few quarters. In December last year, the company onboarded Terri Duhon, a leading industry executive with broad experience in the international corporate sector, as an Independent Non-Executive Director.
