CIMB is one of the region’s first bank to embrace blockchain technology in a bid to increase the speed and efficiency of cross-border transactions in a region where such transactions have been traditionally slow. With the World Bank estimating the value of annual remittances to South East Asia to exceed $120 Million, CIMB group’s partnership with Ripple comes at an opportune time.

The CIMB Banking Group’s remittance product called SpeedSend is powered by Ripple technology. It allows customers to send and receive money with direct account deposits and also using the traditional cash collection at their various branches.
