To the thousands of people around the world, Fintech took a backward step today. As CEO and co-founder of Wirex, I feel for those who have been affected.
To be clear - no Wirex customers using our European (EEA) card will be in any way affected by the recent Wirecard announcement. A very small number whose cards are issued by Wirecard will be notified of immediate steps to support them- but their funds will not be affected either.
We value our customer’s privacy and financial security, and so we are constantly monitoring the situation, and would like to reiterate that no funds are at risk for any Wirex customers.
