MoneyGram International Inc. has slowly become one of the world’s largest money transfer companies. This Dallas-based financial services company began in 1940 when American companies Travelers Express and Integrated Payment Systems Inc. merged. Some of you may recall that MoneyGram used to be called Travelers Express.
It actually wasn’t until 2004 that MoneyGram International became this company’s official name. MoneyGram is now a truly global company with an astounding 350,000 offices in over 200 different countries. To meet the demands of the globalized economy, MoneyGram has split into two departments. MoneyGram’s Financial Paper Products handles money orders and official checks, whereas the Global Funds Transfers deals with money transfers and bill payments services.
In addition to MoneyGram‘s status as one of the world’s leaders in money orders, this company is also well respected for its philanthropic ventures. Just a few highly publicized charities MoneyGram has donated to include the Habitat for Humanity, World Vision International, and towards relief efforts after the 2010 Haitian earthquake. MoneyGram currently trades on the NASDAQ under the ticker MGI.
