AFEX partners with easyMoney to support its international growth 

London, February 10, 2021 – AFEX, one of the world’s largest non-bank providers of global payment and risk management solutions, is partnering with easyMoney, an alternative investment platform offering peer-to-peer property loans in the UK. 

easyMoney provides a platform for investors that can be funded by regular investment or with an Innovative Finance Individual Savings Account (IFISA). The company offers solid returns to its clients investing in carefully screened property backed loans. Investors can ask to sell their loans on easyMoney’s Secondary Market. The average time to sell a loan, over the past 12 months has been 2.6 days.

AFEX provides global payment and risk management solutions to clients around the world. Its API technology offers clients and partners frictionless access to AFEX’s robust global payments infrastructure, and regulatory and licensing framework.

Integrating the AFEX API into its platform will allow easyMoney to offer better FX rates, reduced fees and faster settlement times via local facilities to investors wishing to fund GBP-denominated assets with a foreign currency. The AFEX partnership also enables easyMoney to offer its services to more clients. 

“We’re thrilled to partner with easyMoney, an innovator in peer-to-peer lending,” said Wayne Mitchell, Managing Director EMEA at AFEX. “Our API technology will allow easyMoney to reach more investors and help the platform scale. Our Integrated Solutions team seek out partners like easyMoney, who provide technology-driven alternatives to traditional services. We’re looking forward to a successful partnership.”

“We thoroughly researched the market before choosing to work with AFEX. We were looking for smooth API integration coupled with competitive FX pricing. This service will offer investors with accounts denominated in different currencies the ability to convert their funds into Pounds,” said easyMoney CEO, Andrew de Candole.

easyMoney is the trading name of E-money Capital Ltd. It is part of the easy® family of brands and shares the philosophy of providing a better deal to consumers. 

“Getting a good return on your money has become almost impossible in recent months so the easyMoney offer of good, honest and sound investments means much more value for today’s savers,” said Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, founder of easyJet and owner of the easy® brand.

easy is one of Europe’s best-known brands with up to 99% market recognition. easyMoney offers investors up to 8% pa return with interest paid monthly.
