London, UK, 1 June 2023 – Moneycorp, one of the world’s leading cross-border payments businesses, today publishes its results for the full year 2022 and provides a trading update for the three months ended 31 March 2023.


Mark Horgan, Chief Executive Officer said: 

“This has been a record year for Moneycorp across a number of metrics, with a strong performance from all business segments, transacting over £70 billion of cross-border flow on behalf of our clients. The Group’s strong and established presence in some of the world’s biggest and fastest growing areas of cross-border payments, combined with the scalability of our platform and best-in-class proprietary technology, gives us significant advantage in a rapidly expanding global market.”

Full Year 2022 Financial Highlights 

  • Trading volumes grew by 91% to £73.3bn, with strong performance from new and existing clients across each business segment.
  • Revenue growth of 58% to £220.1m, driven by substantial growth in Payments – Financial Institutions. The Group reported 113% revenue retention from our existing Corporate client base.
  • The Group reported significant EBITDA growth, up 85% year on year. The Group EBITDA margin now stands at 32%, as a result of increased trading revenues, combined with improved efficiency of our payment networks, ongoing prudent cost management, and investment in our people and core technology platform. With over 50% of Group revenue being USD denominated, the USD/GBP rate was a tailwind in our financial performance.
  • Moneycorp remains highly cash generative, with 75% of EBITDA converted to free cash. 

Full Year 2022 Operational Highlights

  • Continued investment in systems and controls to maintain robust operations and regulatory excellence. ‘Soteria’, a new in-house system that provides real time monitoring of all payment transactions that pass through Moneycorp’s platform, was launched in June 2022. Furthermore, we are constantly investing in and enhancing our industry-leading compliance processes as we consider this to be a key differentiator for Moneycorp.
  • The Group continues to build on its European ambitions with the launch of Moneycorp France in September 2022. 
  • Moneycorp was recently named in the Top 100 cross-border payment companies by FXC Intelligence for the fifth year running.
