Growing your business through alternative financial services (AFS)

As one of the fastest-growing global remittance companies, financial institutions, businesses, and consumers alike have trusted MoneyGram for 70 years to move money when it matters most. Now you can too. MoneyGram provides consumers, businesses, financial institutions and alliances alike with diverse and innovative options for moving money.

As your manager struggles to do more with less, preventing fraud losses, with timely reconciliation and keeping resources focused on the needs of your customers is increasingly challenging.

MoneyGram works with you to design programs to meet your specific needs allowing you to maintain control while focusing your internal resources elsewhere.
