"We are delighted to announce this partnership with First Global Data, one of the most respected and innovative mobile and cross border payments company's out there. Using our extensive network, we are extremely confident we can help First Global Data to establish a significant footprint across Europe, and are equally pleased that FGD will be using our comparison engine, to help cement their status as a best-in-class provider of international payments services,” says Emmanuel Addy, Money Cloud CEO.
 
Andre Itwaru (pictured), chairman and CEO of First Global, says: "Global FX capabilities is a key enabler to achieving our vision of becoming one of the world's first portable, interoperable mobile wallets. FX is an integral part of cross border remittances and payments. By integrating The Money Cloud services into our mobile wallet, consumers will have the ability to source and purchase FX at the best rates available."

We choose Renmark because its standards and methodologies fit best with the message we wish to communicate to the investing public."
