Posted on November 10, 2023

Nigerian fintech giant, Flutterwave has announced its successful acquisition of an International Money Transfer Operator (IMTO) license in Malawi. 

The pivotal development, officially authorized on October 19, positions Flutterwave as a key player in facilitating international remittances for Malawians and other Africans abroad, further strengthening its position as Africa’s leading payments and technology company.

Commenting on the license, Olugbenga ‘GB’ Agboola, Founder and CEO of Flutterwave, who expressed gratitude to the Reserve Bank of Malawi, said: “At Flutterwave, we understand the critical role we play in enabling individuals and businesses to navigate the global financial terrain seamlessly. This expansion spotlights our dedication to customer satisfaction as we bring the world closer to their fingertips. We are grateful to the Reserve Bank of Malawi for placing their trust in us. We look forward to this remarkable journey, and we remain committed to delivering the best possible financial services to the people of Malawi.”

The international remittance license supports Flutterwave’s dedication to upholding regulatory compliance, transparency, and ensuring customer satisfaction.

Moreover, it mirrors the Reserve Bank of Malawi’s strong commitment to fostering financial inclusion and propelling the digital economy forward.

Consequently, customers can anticipate a seamless and reliable experience when utilizing Flutterwave’s services.

According to World Bank reports, global remittances are expected to grow 1.4% to $656 billion in 2023, and with millions of Malawians and Africans living and working abroad, the issuance of the IMTO license positions Flutterwave to effectively power remittances into Malawi, ultimately boosting economic growth, stabilizing exchange rate, enabling investments in infrastructure development, and creating jobs and support for small businesses
