ABOUT GEOSWIFT

OUR STORY

CLEARING PAYMENTS IN AND OUT OF CHINA

In 2007, Geoswift was awarded the National License by The State Administration for Foreign Exchange (SAFE), an administrative agency of People’s Bank of China (PBoC). We became one of the very few foreign businesses to facilitate currency exchange retail operation services in China.

Driven by the desire to leverage the internationalization of Renminbi (Yuan) and the complexity in facilitating cross-border payments to and from China, our payment experts spot an opportunity.

In 2010, we have leveraged our first mover advantage, proprietary technology and our in-depth insights into the payments ecosystem, to craft niche solutions to meet the rising demands of frictionless fund flow.

We then evolved into the role to offer highly customized solutions for businesses and individuals for both inbound – Paying into China, and outbound – Collecting from China cross-border transactions.

With the rapid changes in regulatory requirements and ever-increasing demands in payment efficiencies across the globe, Geoswift has now further expanded the role of a Cross-border Clearing House to provide frictionless payments flow from regions to regions. With a key focus to achieve market dominance in these sectors: E-Commerce, Education, Travel and Remittances.

Geoswift is headquartered in Hong Kong, with regional offices in London, San Francisco, Seattle, Shanghai, Singapore and Vancouver.
