Ebury has expanded its partnership with Nium to deliver a global remittance service in Brazil.

The announcement follows regulatory approval of Ebury’s acquisition of Brazilian fintech Bexs, which includes the businesses Bexs Banco (foreign exchange) and Bexs Pay (payments), in October 2023. The institution is known as Ebury Bank in Brazil, reflecting the local FX banking licence held in the country.

Together, Nium and Ebury will enable businesses to send or receive fast, reliable, and affordable cross-border payments to and from Brazil. This builds on the duo’s existing partnership in Europe, in which London-based fintech Ebury leverages Nium’s global payments infrastructure to send international supplier and payroll payments around the world.

Nium’s bulk cross-border payments solution for banks and financial institutions will be integrated into Ebury’s high-scale payment flows to improve the speed, efficiency, and cost of international business transactions. The partnership will also enhance Brazil’s connection to new emerging markets that would otherwise be out of reach. Currently, Nium’s payment network supports payouts in over 100 currencies to more than 190 countries, 100 of them in real-time.

Brazil’s digital payments market is projected to grow to a total transaction value of $170bn in 2024

Luiz Henrique Didier Jr., Executive Director at Ebury Bank in Brazil, said: “Our mission is to connect Brazilian consumers to the world and the world to Brazil’s consumer ecosystem. And the best way to do this is to use high-technology solutions and global coverage, such as those offered by Nium, which bring security and effectiveness to transactions. This is a game changer for us. The product demos gave our team a lot of confidence and the technological integration process was seamless and conclusive, reflecting a great start for the partnership.”

Brazil’s digital payments market is projected to grow to a total transaction value of $170bn in 2024. Government statistics indicate there are over 21 million SMEs in Brazil today, with a total estimated population of over 215 million people.
