Mr. Y. Sudhir Kumar Shetty, COO – Global Operations, UAE Exchange, said, “Over the last 34 years of our operations, we have crossed significant growth milestones across our global operations. UAE Exchange has been able to achieve such exponential growth rates because of the trust it has built among various Diasporas making the remittance brand the most preferred money transferor across the world. Our growth has remained on a buoyant trajectory over the years and this achievement has come with the continuous support and patronage of regulators and partners. Trust, transparency and innovation with a relentless focus on quality have been the drivers of our growth.”

“UAE Exchange has grown with the economies across geographies and particularly in the GCC which is the brand’s home market. For instance, in the UAE alone the rapid economic growth has continued to create a plethora of opportunities for migrant labour stock forcing remittance companies to expand and innovate their offerings,” Mr. Shetty said.
