In Western Union’s Consumer Refocus
Western Union reported 16% revenue growth in Q2 2021, but the headlines were focused on its sale of Western Union Business Solutions for $910m and its resulting refocus on the cross-border consumer payments market.
Digital is a key part of this, with digital money transfers hitting a new high of $265m quarterly revenue – a 22% increase on Q2 2020 – and projected 2021 digital revenue of over $1bn. However, the company is also looking beyond remittances, with the launch of a Western Union-branded multi currency bank account, debit card and integrated money transfer solution, which will be piloted in a number of European countries later in 2021.
