Nium’s banking network is comprised of global banks, national banks, and payment service providers, to provide a versatile and robust payment product suite. As a Nium bank partner, BS2 will allow Nium to add stability and redundancy to its network, adding more capabilities for real-time transfers to and from Brazil.

“This partnership makes our global foreign exchange programs stronger, providing the competitive rates our customers in the e-commerce and marketplace sectors demand,” said Carlos Eduardo Tavares Jr, Exchange Executive Director at BS2. “Nium’s global payment solutions are unmatched and together with our reach into Brazil, we look forward to offering mutually beneficial products that lower costs of money transfers and open up more opportunities for local and global businesses.”

“BS2 is a huge win for the LATAM region,” said Christina Hutchinson, VP of Business Development, Nium. “Not only are we better poised to support companies in Brazil, but we are also enabling businesses to pay out to Brazil in real-time.”
