Nairobi, Kenya, 5th December 2014

Chase Bank (K) Ltd today announced a partnership with SimbaPay which will allow free instant deposits from the United Kingdom to Chase Bank accounts in Kenya. This revolutionary new service allows Kenyans in the Diaspora to deposit money in their recipient’s Chase Bank accounts within minutes using the SimbaPay mobile app.

“Through our partnership with Chase Bank we’re thrilled to expand our instant deposit service beyond mobile money and M-Pesa” said Nyasinga Onyancha, CEO for SimbaPay. “It’s a perfect present to Chase Bank customers this festive season.”

Money transfers submitted from the UK during Kenyan banking hours will be reflected instantly and those submitted outside Kenya banking hours will be reflected on the next banking day.

Local Chase Bank account holders will also benefit from the instant deposit service whenever their friends and family use SimbaPay to send them money.

The service further strengthens Chase Bank’s position as one of the top 5 financial institutions by diaspora remittance volumes handled. According to the Central Bank of Kenya diaspora remittances to Kenya now exceed USD 1.2 billion (KES 105 billion) annually.
