InstaReM - Global

InstaReM* (short for "Instant Remittance") developed a solution to provide a transparent service for overseas money transfer with close to live exchange rates. The company was incorporated in Singapore in August 2014 and is operating across Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia, India, the U.S. and Europe.

We will make it easy and simply share their story (a bit shortened of course): When Prajit Nanu, Co-Founder and CEO of InstaReM was booking a resort in Thailand, he was frustrated with the cumbersome process to transfer money overseas. He realized that international money transfers were expensive and nontransparent. Besides, paperwork and multiple touchpoints increased processing times and costs. Based on this experience he decided to change the process of international money transfers to the better - just like we did at Expatrio with the relocation process to Germany.



MOIN – South Korea

Together with MOIN*, we have implemented a process for Expatrio's Korean customers to save money and enjoy the most convenient solution when transferring their blocked amount to Germany. To make it even easier for you, the unique coupon code "expatrio" enables you to enjoy a one-time free transfer when using MOIN.

As an award-winning FinTech company, MOIN offers the best cross-border money transfer solution from Korea to the world. By providing fast and convenient money transfer service at an affordable price, MOIN wants to innovate inefficiencies and create value for the customers. MOIN supports international transfer to more 27 countries including the European Union, USA, China, Japan, Australia, and Singapore. Established in March 2016, MOIN won the Financial Supervisory Service Award at the ‘2016 Financial Reformation Start-up and Job Fair Competition’. Obtaining official "Small-sum Transfer License" from the Ministry of Strategy and Finance in January 2018 once again confirmed that MOIN keeps up to the Bank-level security standards.
