A money transfer (or wire) is the electronic transfer of money from one person, company, or institution to another. No matter where in the world you need to send money, a bank to bank money transfer is the fastest and most reliable way to do it. The money is usually available to use within a few business days at most, depending on the destination country that you’re sending it to.
