WorldRemit is the leading digital money-transfer company that is pioneering a mobile approach to sending money around the world.

Ismail, the Founder and Chairman, founded the company in 2010. Since then, it has secured over $375 million in funding, backed by Accel, TCV and LeapFrog, and has been named the fastest growing technology company in the UK. Serving previously as a compliance adviser to the United Nations, Ismail founded the company on the principles of strong compliance procedures, recognising that the only way meaningfully to reduce the risks in the money-transfer industry was to bring the entire process into the digital world. Ismail has been named one of the top 10 most influential black Britons in the UK, and won EY Entrepreneur of the Year, London and South.
