Forrester Report Airwallex 2023


Study finds that Airwallex customers expand faster, improve profits, and save on fees versus enterprises that rely on legacy banking solutions

Organisations that use Airwallex enjoy enhanced product stickiness and revenue growth, as well as two years faster market expansion, leading to increased profits.

US$6.6 million saved on FX over three years
