From its inception in 1996, the Sigue family of companies has been dedicated to providing excellence in money transfer services from the United States to Mexico. With a profound knowledge of the underserved needs of Mexicans and Mexican-American immigrants across the United States, Mr. Bill de la Viña set out to meet those needs, provide a quality service and treat his customers with real respect.
The Company’s emphasis on consistent quality service and value, has helped Sigue grow into one of the most respected companies in the money transfer industry. The success of this philosophy is demonstrated in the market’s response.
Over the years, Sigue pioneered the concept of the “red phone” model for origination of transactions and achieved a dominant position in the US to Mexico market by the mid-2000s. The Company has since expanded operations to over 15 Latin American countries and has successfully established a proprietary network of independent locations in Mexico and Guatemala.
By the late 2000s, the company consolidated its leadership position in the US to Latin America corridor and sought to expand its horizons globally by growth through acquisition. Through a series of acquisitions, culminating in its largest and most recent acquisition in 2011; Sigue today is the largest privately held global provider of remittance services and one of the top five companies in the industry.
Sigue, as a leading global money transfer company, today has operations in over 145 countries. We have offices in 15 countries and operation centers in Mexico and India. The company also manages all of its technology needs through state of the art data centers located both in the Eastern and Western United States.
Within the US, Sigue holds licenses and operates in 50 states and jurisdictions. Internationally, Sigue’s global arm is headquartered in London, UK and is licensed by regulatory authorities in UK, France, Spain and Ireland.
