MoneyGram acquires Latino Services

08 July 2013  |  1307 views  |  0 Source: MoneyGram

MoneyGram, a leading global money transfer company, has acquired Latino Services, an Atlanta, Georgia-based funds transfer agent, to increase the number of MoneyGram-owned locations. The move brings MoneyGram closer to its consumers in an effort to meet customers' evolving funds transfer needs.

Prior to the acquisition, MoneyGram operated stores in Miami, Florida, and New York City, New York. The purchase of former non-exclusive agent Latino Services, which sends remittances from the U.S. to Mexico and Latin America, will result in 10 new company-operated stores serving Atlanta customers.

"MoneyGram's acquisition is a unique move in our market," said Pete Ohser, senior vice president of U.S., Canada, MoneyGram. "We continue to find new ways to provide convenient access to our customers and are evolving to fit their needs. By operating these locations, we are not only working to keep our services affordable and secure, but are working to ensure the best customer experience and strengthening our brand position in the Atlanta market."

The acquisition provides an opportunity for the company to test new strategies in an important market.

"It makes sense for us to have corporate-operated stores in key locations," Ohser said. "We're working to bring added value and convenience to those we serve - to provide consumers with the ability to transfer funds any place, any time, and in the most efficient and secure way possible."
