Dubai: Wall Street Exchange, one of the oldest and most trusted remittance and exchange centres in the UAE, further expands its reach with a new branch in Hor Al Anz in Dubai as part of its efforts to serve more customers in the easiest and most convenient way possible.  

The opening of the new branch marks Wall Street Exchange’s plan to give utmost convenience to the customers who send remittances to their home country regularly, as well as to support the growing community of the South and Southeast Asians in the neighbourhood. WSE has also hired staff from the expats’ home countries to facilitate ease of communication.

The World Bank 2019 Report also shows that the UAE is home to 9.68 million expats of more than 200 nationalities. The increasing number—which has boosted the remittance industry—is because of better business and employment opportunities for the expatriates.

Of these remittances, the top senders were Indians with 37.4 percent, followed by Pakistanis with 10.2 percent.
