“I am honored to represent Geoswift in joining the Forbes Finance Council. We’ve built a global cross border payments business across Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore, London, Vancouver, Seattle and San Francisco. We’ve expanded our team with senior appointments of industry specialists to meet the growing requirements of our international clients. We are at an exciting stage of growth and joining the Council will enable us to contribute further to the payments industry especially those turning to China for opportunities.

International players are often overwhelmed by the complex regulations introduced by People’s Bank of China (PBOC). With new market entrants and regulatory developments, I can understand why. Our expertise lies in China and we work with global merchants to facilitate the collection and settlement of currencies into China. Our product infrastructure has also been built to adapt to changes in regulatory policies by the PBOC. We have great business insights on China and we are very positive on the potential it presents.

Our membership with the Forbes Finance Council presents a fantastic opportunity for Geoswift to share our insights and expertise on China’s business potential with the rest of the world.” Raymond Qu, CEO and Founder of Geoswift.
