    Fintechs could help Mexicans abroad send money home more cheaply: Finance Ministry

    Mexico's new government is trying to slash the cost of sending cash home for Mexican families living abroad and is hoping competition from fintechs will encourage banks and services like Western Union to reduce commissions and improve exchange rates. Deputy Finance Minister Arturo Herrera said the government did not plan to place new regulations on the flow of remittances, one of the country's largest sources of foreign currency and a lifeline for millions of poor families. Currently, the commission charged and the foreign exchange rates imposed together take a bite out of each remittance of 8 percent on average.

    Sending Money: MoneyGram vs. Western Union (MGI, WU)

    How about when your child who’s studying at a Canadian university needs you to send the rent deposit – pronto? More routinely, money-transfer companies provide banking services like money transfers, money orders and bill payment to people who don’t have bank accounts. Outside the U.S., it’s even easier to find a nearby agent for MoneyGram (MGI) or Western Union (WU) or both. Cash is still king in many countries, and, in developing nations, many people don’t have bank accounts. There is now actually a “big three” in the money-transfer business: MoneyGram, Western Union and Walmart (WMT), with the retail giant recently entering this business.
