Pravex-Bank offers remittances from Italy to Ukraine

Pravex-Bank, a private Ukranian commercial bank, is offering its customers a new service that will allow them to transfer money from Italy to Ukraine.

Express to Family only costs $3.38 dollars regardless of the amount transferred and offers an unlimited number of transfers, with $6,750 allowed for each transfer, which is cheaper than the average cost international money transfers of $68 for each transfer of $1,350.

Pravex-Bank offers the service in conjunction with Italian banking group Intesa Sanraolo.

"An extensive network of Intesa Sanraolo can send money from anywhere in Italy and a wide network of Pravex-Bank, in turn, provides a translation of the entire territory of Ukraine," Semen Babaev, the director of retail business at Pravex-Bank, said. "The client can get a translation in cash and in the current account.

"Another advantage is the fact that the balance in the account shall bear interest - up to 3 percent annum."
