Kristo Käärmann, co-founder and CEO of TransferWise:
Today our name catches up with who we’re already building for — a community of people and businesses with multi-currency lives. Wise is for all of us who live, work, travel, or support family around the world. It’s for those of us who want to cut out the middlemen that hold us back from being truly borderless.
For customers, not too much will change right away. We become “Wise” or “Wise Business” — depending how you use us. You can access your exact same account via wise.com, using your current email and password. You won't need a new account. In a few weeks we will start to redirect transferwise.com to wise.com.
Our logo has changed, and our apps will be renamed. But our icon — the fast flag — remains as a symbol for money without borders. Beyond that, you’ll notice some new colours, words, and designs.
The core experience of using Wise will remain faster, cheaper, and more convenient than anything else. Our mission remains the same. We’re still making — and always will be making — money work without borders.
We’re humbled that 10 million of you already rely on us to help you lead your international lives. We can’t wait to bring the next 100 million of you with us as we continue to build a new, fair, and transparent world of money.
