Money Transfer Operator, MTFX, Wins Price War With Banks and Lowers Customers’ Costs


Invisible price war produces tangible savings for customers in Canada’s international money transfer market.

MARKHAM, ON, CANADA, March 27, 2023MTFX, a foreign exchange specialist, is waging war on expensive international bank transfer fees. MTFX has emerged as a powerful contender in the battle of the cheapest way to send money abroad from Canada. The service provider focuses solely on international payments via a purely digital platform and uses economies of scale to operate on thin margins. This point of differentiation enables MTFX’s customers to enjoy low transfer fees and competitive exchange rates that are typically 3-5% lower than the banks.

“We live in an increasingly global world, and now more than ever, individuals and businesses are looking for a cheaper way to send money abroad,” said Sabrina Savji, VP of MTFX. “It used to be that banks were the only main players in the market. So, they took liberties to charge the highest prices. Banks are still the most expensive remittance providers, but at least our customers can now bypass the exchange rate markups and hidden charges.”

Michael S. Watt, FX specialist of MTFX, commented, “We differentiate ourselves from banks through low, transparent fees and mid-market exchange rates, which are very attractive to our customers. MTFX is not only competing on price with banks, but we are also competing on value. It’s a good feeling to win on both counts.”

Comparison savings based on a single transfer of CAD $30,000 to USD indicate that customers can save hundreds of dollars more by using MTFX vs. the Bank. These bank-beating rates are accompanied by transparent pricing and reliable services to gain customer trust. In addition, MTFX’s use of proprietary technology makes it easier to lower costs and caters to a growing pool of savvy Canadians who favour electronic remittances. By taking this approach, MTFX is able to align its objectives with the Government of Canada, which has expressed its commitment to lower the costs associated with overseas money transfers and allow safer, more efficient, and more reliable money transfers from Canada.

“We want to keep strengthening the trend towards fairer and transparent foreign exchange costs,” continued Sabrina Savji. “I believe that this sort of healthy competition leads to a more positive experience for customers navigating the international money transfer market. We are proud of our reputation as an online money transfer disruptor.”
