“Our goal as a company is to advance the African economy by enabling seamless and instant transactions for our customers and by simplifying the complexities of managing multiple banking portals onto a single platform”, said Eghosa Nehikhare, Co-Founder and CEO of Multigate.  By leveraging the SWIFT network as a qualified connectivity provider, we provide a secure treasury and liquidity management experience through our innovative digital platform governed by the highest regulatory standards. This also solidifies our adherence to global information security and market best practices and our compliance with global ISO messaging for our clients. We are optimistic about the value we can offer to large corporates through SWIFT to expand to more international markets in the long term,” he added.
