Azimo co-founder and executive chairman Michael Kent said that the partnership is a part of a larger transformation that’s happening in the cross-border payments industry.

Thailand recently launched their instant payment network, and this partnership with the largest bank in the country allows us to get the time to settle payments down from around 24 hours to an average of 22 seconds. [It’s] faster to send money to Thailand than to someone else in Europe.”
