About

We are a Swiss FinTech company established in Geneva in 2018 by a team of young entrepreneurs with finance, management or IT backgrounds.

Our mission is very simple: to make you save time and money on your money transfers in different currencies.

The ibani system

Rethink currency exchange

The story of ibani began when we realized that money transfers in different currencies were a complete black box.

With most banks, there is usually no way to know in advance before sending money at what rate it will be exchanged and what the transfer fees will be.

The result? Banks charge whatever fees they like in full opacity and at your expense.

We have then started to think about the simplest way possible to get around that problem, without having to change your bank or your habits. That's how our currency exchange IBAN system was born!

It allows you to easily bypass your bank for the currency exchange step and let us do it for you at the best exchange rate possible, which we commit to give you together with services that are tailor-made for your needs.
