Airwallex, a cross border payment company, announced that it has completed the acquisition of UniCard Solution Limited following the regulatory approvals from the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) to become a shareholder controller.

Airwallex said that through its wholly owned subsidiary UniCard, it aims to launch various card payment products that will support multi-currency, cross-border transactions in a safe, convenient, compliant and cost-effective way in the coming year.

Airwallex will continue to support UniCard’s prepaid card product, while also providing Hong Kong businesses with access to new payment and collection solutions.




UniCard is a Hong Kong incorporated business and Stored Value Facilities (SVF) licensee under the Payment Systems and Stored Value Facilities Ordinance.

With the acquisition of UniCard, we hope to continue to innovate and empower businesses in Hong Kong and across Asia to grow without borders.”
