Azimo celebrates International Day of Family Remittances 2016 with zero fees offer on all transfers

Posted by fidest press agency su venerdì, 3 giugno 2016

offerte mondo digitale1London, UK – June 2nd, 2016. Azimo, the digital money transfer service, today announced that it will cut transfer fees to zero on 16th June 2016 in support of the International Day of Family Remittances (IDFR).Public awareness of the role of remittances is still very low, despite their hugely positive social and economic impact on the world. Organised by the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), the International Day of Family Remittances was established to recognise, and raise global awareness of, the huge contribution made by migrant workers to the wellbeing of their families and communities back home.While migration is at the heart of so much political debate, the positive impact of remittances is often completely overlooked. At $600 billion, the money sent home annually by migrant workers is three times larger than global aid budgets, acting as a crucial force for good in local development. Some 250 million people live outside their country of origin and remittances often account for more than half the total family income.Azimo, which recently relaunched its mobile app to further improve the way migrants send money, fully supports the IDFR’s aim to increase the impact of remittance funds in the developing world. The company already offers transfer fees from just £1, but has pledged to charge nothing at all for transfers to any country on 16th June.The traditional remittances market still operates almost completely offline, making it difficult for people without access to basic financial services to receive funds. Azimo’s online service provides multiple options for fund collection without the need for a bank account, thus making remittances as accessible as possible throughout the developing world.Michael Kent, CEO of Azimo, explained: “It is vital to recognise and celebrate the crucial contribution that hardworking migrants make to the lives of their families and friends in their home economy. But while remittance funds positively impact 700 million people globally, the average transaction fee is still 8% or more. As a company built by migrants for migrants, our aim is to fix the hugely expensive global money transfer market for the benefit of ordinary people. We want to make international money transfer cheaper, faster and simpler. By maximising the power of remittances for development, we can help our customers to build a better world.”
Launched in 2012, Azimo is the better way to transfer money around the world, touching millions of people’s lives. Fast, simple and safe, Azimo has the largest digital network in the world, enabling customers to send money to over 190 countries, from any internet-connected device.

I soldi sporchi

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 10 dicembre 2011

Money for Nothing (film)

Image via Wikipedia

Secondo l’FMI il denaro sporco muove tra il 3 e il 5% del Pil del pianeta, pari a una cifra che oscilla tra 600 e 1500 miliardi di dollari solo negli Usa, come dire: l’intera economia italiana.
E secondo Bankitalia, in Italia l’industria del riciclaggio rappresenta da sola il 10% del Pil, ossia 150 miliardi di euro. «Il riciclaggio – ha detto il vice direttore generale Anna Maria Tarantola – è una sfida per il Paese». In gioco è «la tutela dell’integrità del sistema finanziario». Ma su scala internazionale vi sono allarmi ancor più preoccupanti. È passata quasi inosservata la denuncia pubblica di Antonio Maria Costa – per otto anni, fino al 2010, direttore dell’Unodc – secondo cui con il denaro del narcotraffico sarebbero state salvate «numerose banche» coinvolte nel crac finanziario del 2008 di Lehman Brothers. A fronte di debiti per 1400 miliardi di dollari, una boccata d’ossigeno per il mondo della finanza in crisi sarebbe arrivata da oltre 350 miliardi di narcodollari. Del resto nella severissima America, prima del Patriot Act diverse banche erano state coinvolte in casi di riciclaggio: il più eclatante quello della Wachovia che in tre anni ha favorito il riciclaggio di 378 miliardi di narcodollari dei cartelli messicani.
Per un lettore comune è sconvolgente scoprire che gli stessi Stati uniti e l’Europa sono disseminati di staterelli che costituiscono dei buchi neri per la tracciabilità dei capitali. Dal Delaware, dove nascondono i soldi grandi Corporation e faccendieri italiani, all’Austria che ha l’anomalia di 25 milioni di conti anonimi su una popolazione di appena 8 milioni di persone. Alla garantista Inghilterra dove un solo ufficio di cambio ha smerciato 4 milioni di euro in banconote da 500, più di un colosso bancario. Un mondo popolato da figure sfuggenti, dai magnati della mafia russa che agiscono in mezzo mondo, ad avvocati d’affari come il tedesco Herbert Batliner, coinvolto nello scandalo dei fondi neri della Cdu, nel riciclaggio di 15 milioni di euro di un narcos, ma condannato solo per una mega evasione da 250 milioni. Quanto ai tanto vituperati paradisi fiscali, la guerra lanciata da Obama due anni fa, e più recentemente da Sarkozy e Merkel, ha prodotto ben miseri risultati. All’ultimo G20 la Cina ha ottenuto che non si accendessero i fari su Hong Kong e Macao. Sono solo alcune delle storie e dei dati con cui il libro racconta le forme e le figure del riciclaggio, dai paradisi fiscali a quelli virtuali fino ai money transfer, e dai banchieri fino ai semplici prestanome. I confini della complicità sono sfuggenti, la lotta è impari. Ma il messaggio è chiaro: bisogna colmare un deficit culturale e legislativo fra i vari Stati, per contrastare un fenomeno che per dimensioni e pervasività è diventato la minaccia più grande al sistema economico mondiale.

Transfer of students

Posted by fidest press agency su lunedì, 22 novembre 2010

The Community of Protestant Churches in Europe CPCE aims to reach a comprehensive agreement on common principles for the training of ministers on the 105 member churches of the CPCE. Representatives of 23 Protestant churches from 16 European countries participated in a consultation in Vienna from 18-21 November 2010. The consultation elaborated a draft paper and agreed on the following final communiqué: It is important to work towards common standards in theological education which facilitate the transfer of students from one educational establishment to another within Europe, mutual recognition of educational achievements, compatibility of different educational paths, as well as the exchange and acceptance of ministers from other CPCE churches.  It needs to be said more strongly than before theological graduates should be able to integrate the various disciplines of theology. The perspectives of biblical studies, church history, systematic theology and practical theology should be more clearly related to each other. There should be a stronger interdisciplinary component in all areas of education. The draft emphasizes the relevance importance of continuing professional development of ministers. In a contemporary context, there needs to be a clear educational goal and church support. To achieve this, the CPCE has the potential to offer suitable opportunities: pan-European exchange programmes for continuing education, an international institute for continuing ministerial education, and the development of multilateral partnerships for programmes for continuing education. Furthermore, suitable instruments of coordination need to be established. Studies abroad as part of academic education are already a matter of course in many churches of the CPCE, but this opportunity should be more extensively promoted and taken up. Ministers in training should also be given the opportunity to complete part of their church based training in another member church of the CPCE. Another goal is the temporary exchange of ministers. Long term transfer of ministers from one member church to another will be facilitated, if there are programmes that help them to become familiar with their new context. It is intended that, by January 2011, the paper will have reached a state in which it can be sent to the member churches of the CPCE and their institutions of theological training for their responses. The paper will be given its final form on the basis of these responses to be presented to the General Assembly in Florence in 2012.
